The Best Compliment To This View? Pizza Delivered By Airplane
Seriously: If you're in Saba and St. Eustatius in the Caribbean, you can order Domino's Pizza by airplane.
Pizza cravings are a serious thing. While they're usually fulfilled with a simple phone call or a few taps of a smartphone app, there are still some places where immediate 'za satisfaction is near impossible. Domino's is putting an end to pizza-lust for two Caribbean islands: St. Eustatius and Saba. A Domino's location in the St. Maarten Airport teamed up with a local airline, Winair to deliver pies to the nearby islands.
Delivery is based on the flight schedules, of course—customers can choose a delivery time and the pizza will be made right before taking off. Here are a few things to know about this service that make it an even more epic feat than it already is:
Total Delivery Time Is Less Than 30 Minutes
The video below shows a pizza being ordered, made, and delivered in under half and hour (flying time included). That's a great time for any delivery, by airplane or car. Let's just hope the delivery person doesn't get stuck in a long security line—cold pizza would be just another point on the TSA list of woes.
The Flight Ends In One Of The Most Difficult Landings In The World
This is no joke—the runway is nestled in between two cliffs by the sea. Add that to the fact that Saba has the shortest commerical runway in the world, and you've got quite the delivery on your hands.
After All Is Said And Done, You Do Have To Pick It Up At The Airport
You lose a bit of convenience when you put someone through a 15-minute flight and a somewhat terrifying landing just for a few slices.
It's Going To Cost You Less Than Another Slice
Aside from the cost of your pizza, all of the delivery effort is only going to cost you $2.75 extra. But don't forget to tip!
