One airline made this week's flight delays a little less painful.

You could say Delta Airlines stepped up to the plate for stranded passengers after it canceled hundreds of flights because of severe thunderstorms in the south.

The airline saying it ordered more than 700 boxes of pizza for some affected customers at airports in Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana, Ohio, Kentucky and elsewhere

In Nashville alone, Delta ordered a 160 pizzas and 60 foot long subs. There were games and coloring books for younger fliers.

It's not the first time the Atlanta based airline has gotten kudos for good service during a crisis. There are reports during a power outage last year, which affected some 2,000 flights. Delta gave out doughnuts, pizza and booze.
