NEW YORK (PIX11) — When a Brooklyn man boarded a plane headed from Cleveland, Ohio to LaGuardia Airport in New York, he never expected to be the only passenger on board.

According to ABC News, the flight was delayed for hours, and since passenger Chris O’Leary learned of the delays by phone notifications, he stayed in his hotel until shortly before the flight was actually due to take off.

When he arrived at the airport, O’Leary heard his name being paged on the loud speaker and he was informed that everyone else had been rebooked on earlier flights because of the delay.

O’Leary started tweeting about his private plane experience before departing, saying how he got a personalized safety briefing and a one-on-one run down from the captain about the flight.

It seemed as O’leary would have the whole plane to himself. But according to the his Twitter, the plane turned around to the gate at the last minute for a second passenger.
