Can you imagine being only one of two passengers on a Delta flight? New Yorker Chris O'Leary experienced just that when he realized he was all by himself on Flight 6259 in Cleveland. Apparently all the other passengers took an earlier flight after announcements of bad weather caused a major delay. Delta still needed to get the plane to LaGuardia Airport in New York for other flights, so it went ahead with the trip.
They rebooked everyone but me on another flight to LGA, so I am literally the only person on this plane. pic.twitter.com/ZZNPACUOfR— Chris O'Leary (@ohhleary) January 12, 2015
O'Leary was superpumped about being the sole person on the flight until the plane turned around to pick up one more person at the gate. He says the passenger slept the whole way to NY! No reclining seats or crying kids — sounds like an excellent traveling experience.
The thrill is gone, you guys. Just as we were about to push back, they reconnected the jet bridge to let a second passenger on the flight. 😥— Chris O'Leary (@ohhleary) January 12, 2015
