Before boarding the plane, Poene asked an employee if anyone has ever flown solo on a plane before. She said yes, and apologized for the cinematic let down.
“I’m not gonna post that,” he responded.
Once on board, the flight attendants welcomed only him. "Good evening Vincent,” said one. “And welcome aboard. We look forward to taking care of you today. If you need any assistance getting settled we're delighted to serve you. To ensure an on-time departure please remain in your seat.”
No information was provided about whether or not Poene felt more compelled to focus on the safety instructions than would a passenger in normal circumstances.
After takeoff, the Diamond member really let loose. "I sat window and aisle,” he said, per the report. “I was tempted to try to set a record to sit in every single seat for like, two minutes on the flight, so that I could actually sit everywhere.”
When the plane landed, Poene thanked the pilots and took a picture in front of the plane. And as if that wasn’t enough premium care for one man, the Delta Twitter responded sweetly to his video.
