Pilot buys burgers for all 70 passengers stuck on tarmac

This is the type of pilot you wish you had.

A Mesa Airlines flight from Tulsa, Oklahoma to Huston sat on the tarmac for two-and-a-half hours. But the Captain Matthew Hoshor went out of his way to cheer everyone up by buying the passengers burgers out of his own pocket.

Captain Hoshor bought 70 passengers burgers from Fat Guy’s Burger Bar, which is a nearby joint in Tulsa.

A passenger, Sam Walker, tweeted out the kind gesture.

According to the site each Fat Guy Burger costs $6.99, and without tax, tip, or delivery fees that’s $489.30! With tax, this was well over $550.

Now, this pilot knows how to give great customer service.
