SEE IT: Man flying from Colorado to Utah finds he’s the only passenger on the plane

All aboard.

An unsuspecting traveler taking the 68-minute trip from Aspen, Co. to Salt Lake City, Utah found he was the only passenger on his Delta commercial jet last week. Naturally, filmmaker Vincent Peone, who has worked with the CollegeHumor site and Funny or Die production company, documented his solo flight.

Other than having the crew’s undivided attention, it seemed Peone’s flight was just like any other. That included being called to the gate to board and having to sit through safety instructions once he was seated.

“Will the only passenger on this plane please board at this time,” a Delta employee in Aspen requested over the airport intercom.

“At the desk, they were like, ‘I don’t know if we even need to make the announcement, because it’s just you,’” Peone told the Washington Post. “I was like, ‘Oh, no. Do the announcement.'”

Once on the plane, Peone’s experience became a bit more personalized.

“Good evening, Vincent, and welcome aboard,” a flight attendant said over the plane’s intercom.

Peone’s VIP experience seemed to have been dampened just a bit when one airline worker told him this wasn’t the first time she’s seen a plane take flight with just one passenger. Nevertheless, the 35-year-old Kingston, NY native seemed to savor the experience as he stood on the steps of the airliner enjoying a beverage after landing in Utah.

The original flight had reportedly been rescheduled, which Peone thinks may have led to there being no other passengers on board. Delta did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
