A man traveling from Sydney to Fiji was surprised to find he was the only passenger on board the “ghost flight”.
Robbie Allen filmed the bizarre experience and said it was like being put on a “private jet” as a treat for his upcoming birthday.
A “ghost flight” is a normal route flown at less than 10% of its capacity – a common phenomenon during the pandemic.
“I was literally the only person on the whole plane,” he said in a TikTok video.
“The captain came and sat next to me and talked to me. Then the staff gave me what I wanted.’
He then showed a bowl of snacks the flight attendant had prepared for him, accompanied by a glass of sparkling wine.
“I had already booked business class, but otherwise I would have gotten it for free,” he said.
“It was such a weird and strange experience, something I will never forget.”
He also showed his suitcase, which stood alone in the baggage claim area.
“I was the only person on the plane, so it’s just there,” he said.
Robbie wrote in the comments that only 27 passengers were expected on the return flight.
Hundreds of people said the empty flight would make their dream come true.
