Lone Passenger Flies to Boracay

The face of a man who knows he won't have to put up with crying babies or reclining seats.
“I was a bit surprised and I couldn’t believe it!”

Alex Simon, 28, a travel blogger from Ischgl, Austria, found himself unexpectedly onboard a “private jet” when no one else showed up for the flight of Philippine Airlines from Manila to Boracay.

Simon took a video of the bizarre experience where he was seen talking to the lady pilot in the cockpit, and jokes around with his personal cabin crew.

According to Daily Mail, when he arrived at the airport his name was called over the loudspeaker and he was asked to make his way to the information counter. Staff explained the flight would be leaving in 30 minutes instead of the scheduled two hours because he was the only passenger.

“I thought I was dreaming. Later while boarding I just realized that it’s gonna be a special flight because this time I didn’t even need to line up.”

He even asked the cabin crew if he could take a window seat. “She answered, ‘You can sit anywhere, because you’re the only one passenger.'”

“It was an unforgettable feeling to take a flight to the one of the most beautiful islands of the world, but to be alone and feel like a superstar it made it more special.”

Flights between the Philippines capital and the tourist island of Boracay were normally packed.

      1. I know, I read. It’s just an expression of disbelief and amusement… Didn’t know how to express it better really.
