Man Gets a 737 to Himself
You must be asking yourself, how did this even happen?
His only companions on board the plane, which has a seating capacity of 189, were two pilots and five crew members on board the 737. Strimaitis suspected something was amiss when he went to check in at Lithuania’s Vilnius International Airport and was told the crew were waiting for him.
After asking why, as he was by no means late, Strimaitis was informed that he was the sole passenger on board.
How did this happen?
Tour operator Novaturas confirmed to CNN Travel they chartered a flight from Bergamo to Vilnius for a group of clients that day.
In order to avoid the aircraft coming back empty, one-way tickets were put on sale for the return trip. However, he was the only person to buy the ticket.
How would you feel if you were the only passenger?
Let me know below.
I would feel very very special in this situation. I would obviously hope to crew would be extra nice, since they wouldn’t have to worry about any other passengers, and maybe I would ask for a tour of the cockpit.
