A MAN ended up being flown to his chosen destination on a “private jet” after being the only person to book a ticket on a Delta Airlines flight.
Filmmaker Vincent Peone stumbled upon the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when he discovered he was the only person on the flight from Aspen, Colorado, US, to Salt Lake City, Utah.
The clip of Vincent’s experiences begins with the airline worker inviting the flight's passengers to board the Delta Airlines flight, saying: “Would the only passenger on this flight kindly board at this time?”
Vincent comically makes a mad dash towards the gate before being escorted to the plane.
As he boards the flight, runway workers begin piling weight bags in the luggage to mimic other passengers.
Vincent said: “We’re adding weight to the plane as there are no people.”
The man was then provided with a personalised safety chat by the air hostess.
“Good evening Vincent and welcome aboard,” he said.
"We are looking forward to taking care of you today.
"If you need any assistance getting settled we’re delighted to serve you.”
He pans the camera around showing the empty plane seats onboard the commercial jet.
Vincent is even introduced to the pilots who were behind the wheel of the plane.
“Thank you so much for flying me, thank you,” he said.
After shaking hands, one of the pilots replied: “You’re welcome. It’s your own private jet.”
The man later revealed the experience likely happened as the flight was re-scheduled.
Vincent told Washington Post: “The flight was actually rescheduled, which I think had everything to do with it.
“I’m Diamond Medallion [status], so Delta was very good to me.
“I had called them and got some information about what was available.
“Coming back [to the airport] at 7pm meant I would have gotten to see more of Aspen because it was a short trip anyway, so I took the later option.”
Delta responded on Twitter as well, tweeting: "Hi Vincent! That looks like an awesome experience! Thank you for the shoutout, and we truly appreciate you for choosing Delta! Take care."
