A Scottish vacationer only had to shell out $60 for a VIP experience aboard her flight from Glasgow to the Greek island of Crete. According to the Daily Mail, 57-year-old Karon Grieve was the only passenger on the four-hour Jet2 flight, leaving her with 189 seats and an entire flight crew to herself.
She was told at check-in that only three people were booked on the end-of-season flight. When the other two failed to show up, Ms Grieve, 57, was told to choose any seat and given a personalised commentary by the pilot, who addressed her over the intercom by name and pointed out countries they were flying over.Jet2 flight
She met the captain, Laura, and talked with first officer Lee. "As we flew over places of interest, Laura would come on the tannoy (loudspeaker) saying, 'Hi, Karon and the girls. We are now flying over Croatia, look to your left,'" Grieve told the Daily Record. Grieve continued to receive personalized commentary throughout the flight and got to sit in the aircraft's first row. After landing her bag was handed to her straight from the aircraft.
Karon Grieve, from Dunlop, Ayrshire, told the Daily Record: “When I turned up for the flight, I expected it to be quiet because it’s the very end of season and most people are coming home.
“Imagine my surprise when I got to the gate and the flight crew greeted me saying, ‘Hi, you are our only passenger. You have your own private jet today.’"
The author then took the hilarious selfie that shows her on a completely empty plane. As the only passenger, she was treated to VIP treatment of any seat on the flight, a free meal and commentary from the pilot on the journey.
