Reddit User Beth, experienced the life of an A-lister after her flight was canceled and she was accidentally rebooked onto a plane intended for transporting airline crew.
On Tuesday, January 2, Beth posted a selfie with an empty aircraft background on her Reddit account and said, “I got a whole plane to myself when I was accidentally booked on a flight just meant for moving crew.”
Beth was supposed to fly from Rochester, New York to Ronald Reagan International Airport in Washington, D.C., at around 5 pm when the flight was canceled.
She stated that when her flight was canceled an unsure agent had given her a seat on the plane in the picture together with half of the passengers. However, it was late when another agent realized they could go on an earlier flight. Beth had already left to his parent’s house nearby to wait for the coming hours.
“When my flight was canceled about eight hours earlier a confused agent gave me and half the passengers a seat on the plane in the pic before another agent realized everyone could go on an earlier flight.”
“They made an announcement on the speaker but I’d already left to go back to my parent’s house nearby to wait for the next few hours. I was never contacted about the flight change.”
She only realized that she’d be getting the private jet experienced when she arrived back at the airport and waited in the waiting area alone.
“I realized something was wrong when I was the only one in the waiting area 45 minutes before take off,” Beth wrote on Reddit.
“One of the airport agents came over while I was waiting and asked if that was the flight I was waiting for then said, ‘I knew this would happen.”
Beth said that she spent her time sleeping and didn’t ask for any special treatment as it was only a short flight. An hour long to be exact.
“It was a short flight so I didn’t ask for anything,” she said. “Maybe I would’ve gotten special treatment if I tried.”
