When inclement weather delayed Delta flights nationwide on Tuesday, the crews ordered pizzas.
Passengers like Riley Vasquez, whose plane to Atlanta got diverted to Knoxville, Tenn., have been sharing pictures of these impromptu “pizza parties” on social media:
@RileyVasquez That is AWESOME! We're so excited we were able to turn your unexpected stop into a party. Enjoy the inflight entertainment!

The airline experienced more than 100 flights cancellations and more than 650 delays on Tuesday, CNN reported via data from the flight-tracker FlightAware.
Thanks for the pizza, @Delta @DeltaAssist. Flight delayed in Destin-Ft. Walton bound for Atlanta.
