A student was gobsmacked to discover he was the only person onboard an eight-hour British Airways flight from London to Orlando – and he had an absolute blast.
Kai Forsyth, is from Derby but goes to college in the US and was returning back to the States when he had “the weirdest experience” of flying in a plane he said carried no passengers except himself and the crew.
Filming for his @kaiforsyth TikTok on Monday (January 10) he pans around to show aisle after aisle of empty seats and explains: “The cabin crew said I was the only person onboard the flight.”
He then decides to put the armrests down and get comfy with a makeshift bed across four empty seats.
“It was eight hours so I set up a bed. Literally the comfiest I’ve ever been on a plane,” he writes on the screen.
Kai also shows how he was given a wholesale box full of Walkers shortbread biscuits since there was nobody else to cater for.
“They literally gave me all the snacks and unlimited food,” he writes while making his viewers’ mouths water with jealousy.
He said he couldn’t be upgraded to Business or First Class which was the only downside to his enjoyable trip.
The video was watched more than 170,000 times and people said Kai was very lucky, although one confessed they found it a bit scary and said: “Nah I’d be too paranoid the whole journey.”
A second viewer shared: “I remember the flight home from JFK to Gatwick, about 10 people the whole of economy. Was the best flight.”
“Omg that was me I kept flying when Covid first ever got announced and there were no restrictions,” someone else commented.
Another user said: “The last time it happened to me it was the roughest flight ever and landed on 2nd attempt.”
