Flight 2354 of the American Airlines company between Los Angeles (California) and Dallas (Texas) was diverted on Thursday due to heavy storms and countries in Wichita Falls (Texas), 159 passengers left on the ground and overturned spend the night there. To ease their hardship, the commander of the plane, Jeff Raines, had an unusual gesture: he ordered 40 pizza's from a Papa John's restaurant to be taken to the airport and handed out to his passengers.
"Go a gentleman, go a gentleman," said a number of passengers, according to reports the CNN chain. An airport worker, Josh Raines, picked up the pizza delivery boy and said, "I do not think I've seen anything like this before."

The commander posted a message on his account of the social network Facebook that shared the merit among the whole crew: the first officer took care of looking for hotel passengers, flight attendants served drinks in the terminal, ground staff sought connection with the passengers and all helped their doubts and to solve questions because, as he said, there is no place for it & # 39; I & # 39; in the word & # 39; team & # 39 ;.
