Pizza lovers in Los Angeles will have the opportunity to order a delivery pizza from New York's historic Patsy's Pizza this month.
JetBlue will be flying pizzas from NYC to LA over a three-day period in a special promotion it's calling The Pie in the Sky Program.
According to the JetBlue promotion's web page:
"As New York’s Hometown Airline, we know no one does pizza like New York. And guess what, Los Angeles? You can tell your cross-country cravings to prepare for takeoff, because Patsy’s Pizzeria of East Harlem is heading your way. JetBlue is flying cheese and pepperoni pizzas from JFK to LAX. Coast to coast. Crust to crust. From May 9th – May 11th, a limited quantity of 350 pizzas will be available for purchase each day. We’ll deliver to select areas in LA, right to your door. So act fast — ordering opens daily at 12:00 AM PDT. Pizzas are first come, first served!"
There's no charge for delivery, but the 16" pizzas are $12 for cheese and $15 for pepperoni, according to the site.
Upon landing in L.A., pizzas will be transported to a kitchen and prepped for final delivery to designated delivery zones.
Spike Lee was recruited to illustrate to Angelenos how to properly eat a New York-style pizza once they receive it. (see video below).
