Sometimes passengers can actually benefit from an air carrier of the error.

A woman got a whole flight to himself, after a recent re-routing accident in Rochester, New York. Reddit user shadybaby22 shared her once-in-a-lifetime experience last week after snapping a selfie in front of a number of rows of empty seats on her flight from New York to Washington, D. C.

The woman, who is only as Beth, said her solo trip occurred after her first flight was cancelled. Staff passengers rebooked on a new flight, but later she told that she could board an earlier flight to D. C.

However, Beth is already back home to kill time and was never contacted about the flight change.

“I was the only one in the waiting area 45 minutes before the start,” she said. “One of the airport cops came while I was waiting and asked if that was the flight that I was waiting for then said, ‘I knew that this would happen.'”

The blunder of the liquidation of the work in her favor though as she was freed up to make the 200 km trip in complete peace and serenity. The airline let Beth council, despite the unusual circumstances, since the plane and crew were needed in D. C. anyway.

Beth said she settled in a chair close to the front of the plane and was presented with a short safety demonstration.

“It seemed to be far enough away that if the flight attendant was taking care of something in the front would not wake me up and close enough that if she had to tell me something she wouldn’t have to yell or walk away.”

“Both captains and the flight attendant said that they have never seen this happen,” she added.

Beth’s post quickly went viral, racking up more than 130,000 to vote and 5,000 comments.

Last year, a Scottish woman was the only passenger on a Jet2 flight from Glasgow to Crete for two other passengers failed to show up.
