Passengers of a recent flight found themselves in an unexpected delay when their pilot decided to fetch pizza for the crew, leaving them waiting for over an hour. The incident, captured in a viral video, has sparked mixed reactions online.

The video, shared on Instagram by Dailymail, shows the pilot candidly explaining over the intercom that he had to leave the terminal to buy food for the crew, who reportedly couldn’t stomach the onboard sandwiches.

“I couldn’t feed the crew with poor sandwiches,” the pilot expressed, detailing the hurdles of going through security and passport checks again.

Despite some passengers expressing understanding, others criticized the decision, arguing that crew members should be responsible for their meals, especially on budget airlines.

A passenger who captured the video expressed frustration over the prolonged wait, stating that they were not offered refreshments or allowed to use onboard facilities.

The delay, which resulted in the flight landing nearly three hours later than scheduled, left passengers questioning the handling of the situation.

In response, the airline issued a statement expressing regret for the inconvenience caused and assured measures to prevent such incidents in the future.

The incident serves as a reminder of the delicate balance between passenger comfort and crew requirements in the realm of air travel.
