Domino’s will be using a jet suit to deliver pizza to festival-goers

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a jet suit delivering Domino's pizza to festival-goers.
Ever been to a festival stuck behind a slog of queue at an overpriced street-food truck only to be charged a fortune for the world's measliest burger and a side of super soggy fries?
Well, look no further than the ol' reliable.
Whether you're a Pepperoni Passion lover or a Vegi Supreme kinda guy - any aficionadoughs out there will be beaming to know that Domino's has partnered with Gravity Industries to be the first pizza company in the world to deliver via jet suits.
With Glasto kicking off the festivities today (21 June), hungry music revellers can now order a pizza which will literally be flown to them like something right out of a cheesy sci-fi flick from the 80s.
Glastonbury attendees were left stunned when a delivery driver-turned-pilot took off from a local branch and cruised over fields to hand deliver some piping-hot 'za to campers.
Sam Wilson of Domino’s said: "When we realised pitching up to serve slices inside the festival was impossible, we took inspiration from this year’s headliner to launch our own rapid delivery trial – it was a bit of a no brainer.
"Every year we see huge numbers of random requests from festival goers trying to sneak pizza into the party.
"So, this year we wanted to take a giant step towards and trial our very own rocket man service to help hungry campers get a slice of sky-high satisfaction in the future."
Not all heroes wear capes, clearly.
Talking about whether the new ultra-modern delivery service could be the start of a nationwide jet pack-powered takeaway industry, the Domino’s spokesperson added: "All we can say at this stage is that the idea has legs…or wings…or jets."
The suits in question, worth hundreds of thousands of pounds, were customised for the pizza chain to make sure the pies were delivered with the usual oven-hot freshness we've all grown to expect.
A spokesperson at Gravity Industries added: "Keeping pizza piping hot using the jet suit is definitely an unusual utilisation of our tech and pizza isn’t in our normal flight plan.
"But being able to exceed the average delivery time by flying through the Somerset fields and feed campers with the pizza delivery experts certainly shows the future of fast delivery service."
How's that for a slice of fried gold?
