The other day I read the story about a man that found himself completely alone in a flight from Delta Airlines. This happened a couple of weeks ago and it was published by the person itself through his Twitter account and then it was picked up by several media, like CNN.
The story reminded me of a time when I took a flight with just 5 other passengers. The plane was an Airbus 320 so we basically had a quite a lot options where to sit, especially me because I was the only person in a Business Class that was set up in the first 7 rows of the plane. I basically spent the flight having a great service from the cabin crew, lots of attention (“Do you want another coffee, sir?”, every 10 minutes) and a quite, really quite 3 hours flight. The crew told me that this happened more times that you could imagine, but none of them mentioned to have experienced the “only one passenger” as it happened to @ohhleary.
