The Frontier Airlines plane was heading from Washington DC to Denver, when it was diverted to Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Cheyenne Domino's Pizza manager Andrew Ritchie told The Associated Press he got a call at about 10pm local time on Monday just as he was about to send employees home.

He says the pilot told him he needed to feed 160 people - fast.

Mr Ritchie says his crew made about 35 pizzas and delivered them to the airport, where the driver handed the food to the flight attendants.

One of the passengers sent KUSA-TV a picture of flight attendants handing pizza boxes to people.

The television station reported that the flight left Cheyenne at about 10.30pm, shortly after the pizzas arrived.
