A British woman who had paid a modest £46 for a flight from Glasgow to Crete was stunned to find herself the only passenger on the plane. Karon Grieve, a 57-year-old author from Ayrshire, arrived at the check-in desk on Sunday hoping for a window seat (her strong preference) to be told that she would be joined by only two other passengers. When neither of them turned up, she proceeded to enjoy the 4.5 hour flight all to herself.
The pilot of the Boeing 737-800, who found the peculiar circumstances all rather amusing, provided her a running commentary via the intercom as they flew over various countries, addressing her and the (very unhurried) cabin crew as ‘Karon and the girls’, and even talking her through a lightening storm they passed, Karon revealed.
She chose the window seat – naturally – in the first row of the aircraft, with plenty of legroom, and after a free meal and plenty of peace and quiet, she hopped off to be presented with her luggage straight from the hold.
“My suitcase was handed to me as soon as the flight touched down,” she said. “I didn’t even have to wait at the dreaded baggage carousel.”
