When Steven Schneider arrived at the gate where he was supposed to board a plane on Tuesday in New Orleans, he thought he had missed his flight, USA Today reported.
Thankfully for Schneider, he had not missed his flight but was the only passenger aboard the plane, USA Today said.
Delta apparently contacted all of the passengers who were to be on the flight to Atlanta because there was going to be a delay, the newspaper reported. The airline was unable to reach Schneider because it had the wrong phone number for him.
Delta allowed Schneider to either keep his original flight or book a new flight, the newspaper said. He chose to stick around for his original flight, making him the sole passenger aboard the aircraft.
“At first I felt really bad because I didn’t want the plane to only make the trip because of me,” Schneider told WSB TV of Atlanta. “But after talking to a flight attendant at the gate, she said the plane needed to go back to Atlanta anyway.”
