Flying solo! Man ends up being only passenger on flight

Flying solo! Man ends up being only passenger on flight

At least it all ended well with some VIP treatment with the airline crew.

If you've travelled before, you will know that at some point things are not in your control. 

Flights experience delays and your schedule has to be shifted.

When it comes to shifting your schedule, that likely means you have to make alternate arrangements. Sometimes, it's a must, if you have to be somewhere at a set time, or worse if you have a connecting flight. 

One man though was what we can call the 'Last Man Standing' as he decided to wait out his delayed flight. 

He was flying from Oklahoma City to Charlotte, North Carolina and was informed of an 18-hour flight delay. 

But instead of making alternate arrangements like all the others on his flight, he waited it out - and it turned out to be quite an experience. 

After arriving at the gate and finding a ghost town, he asked the airline staff if everyone had boarded already. 

“I went to the gate and nobody was there. I was like, ‘Did you guys already board everyone?’” he said, adding that the flight attendant “was like, ‘No, honey, you’re the only passenger.’” And just like that, Stringer realised he had become the star of his very own exclusive party in the sky. The crew decided to spice things up and make this ordinary flight extraordinary." (MSN)

WATCH his post to TikTok that shows him flying solo:

Although he admitted that he felt guilty for inconveniencing the American Airlines crew, we think he was pretty pleased with the treatment. 

Check out his next flight after the solo experience. Courtesy of TikTok:

@phil.stringer Testing my luck: will the second flight be a private one too? Dodging interviews, snatching coffee…maybe not as private as last time, but still an adventure! 😆☕️ #americanairlines #starbucks #flightattendant #airplanetiktok #privateparty #flightfun #delayedflight #fyp #viral #philstringer @digital.canopy ♬ Yacht Club - MusicBox
