Most people count themselves lucky if they can secure a free seat on a busy flight – one man, however, had only empty seats when he was the sole passenger on domestic flight, the Independent reports.
Austrian travel blogger Alex Simon was able to book a ticket on a Philippines Airlines private jet from Manila to the beach island on Boracay – with two flight attendants and two pilots being the only other people on board.
The cabin crew took turns filming Mr Simon for a video of his journey, which he posted online in February 2015.
“It was an unforgettable feeling to take a flight to one of the most beautiful islands of the world, but to be alone and to feel like a superstar made it more special,” he said.
“I just had luck, I think, that no one else was interested on this day to fly to paradise.”
When he was told he was to be the sole passenger on-board, Mr Simon said he was “surprised” and thought he was dreaming.
“Later while boarding I just realised that it’s gonna be a special flight because this time I didn’t even need to line up,” he said.
