Across the board, planes are getting more crowded by the day. But for a brief moment of glory yesterday, one lucky passenger got an entire commercial flight to himself. And even though the flight ended up with two passengers, the near-solo jaunt gives hope to fliers everywhere.
Chris O'Leary learned via text that his 7.15am flight from Cleveland to New York was delayed and he'd be on a flight two hours later. But that flight was delayed until 1pm, so he decided to wait at his hotel. Well, when O'Leary turned up at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, he found out that every other passenger was rebooked on earlier flights, and that he'd be the only one aboard the plane.
