I’ve flown alone in first class many times, for instance flying Singapore Airlines from Singapore to Paris, Thai Airways from Bangkok to Tokyo, and ANA from Chicago to Tokyo. As a kid I flew New York – Cincinnati with maybe 3 other passengers on the plane (I was an unaccompanied minor).
On January 1, 2000 (“Y2K”) people were staying away from planes but I flew United Los Angeles – Washington Dulles and business class was upgraded to first, economy to business, while they recalculated weight and balance.
Last week a man documented the experience of flying Delta from Aspen to Salt Lake City by himself aboard Delta Express flight DL3652 operated by SkyWest. Boarding was announced at the gate as being for him. He captures the surreal experience of a predeparture announcement being made over the PA system by a flight attendant when he’s the only one in the cabin. He gets to meet the pilots. He’s sitting up front, with a predeparture beverage.

Twitter’s reaction, though? They think one of the pilots is pretty attractive.

It’s a cool experience when you get super personalized attention – spoiled even – by a flight attendant. And being alone in a plane is unusual. However it’s just a 292 mile flight.
I’ll admit though the experience was pretty amazing flying private for the much shorter Houston to Austin, so this had to be 292 miles of pure bliss.
