Plane Passenger Gets Entire Flight to Himself

A Delta passenger recently made headlines for managing to nab a one-way flight all to himself - however, those on Twitter were more interested in the plane's attractive co-pilot than the passenger's good luck.

Vincent Peone told news outlets that he landed the solo trip after his morning Delta flight operated by SkyWest Airlines out of Aspen, Colorado, was grounded last week. Being the filmmaker that he is, Peone shared his odd experience Monday on Twitter via a documentary video of sorts, starting with the gate agent summoning the "only passenger" to step up for boarding. "Will the only passenger on this flight kindly board at this time", the agent says.

The one-minute-long video, which racked up almost 800,000 views byTuesday morning, goes on to show Peone walking out to the plane and talking to ground agents, who are seen adding sandbags to the cargo hold for weight, before boarding and listening to the flight attendant's safety instructions.

Although the director was the only passenger, the flight attendant did not break protocol and still welcomes him aboard via intercom and announces the flight safety instructions.

Grabbing hold of the speaker, she gives him a personal message, saying: "Good evening Vincent and welcome aboard. If you need any assistance getting settled we're delighted to serve you", the flight attendant says in the video.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Peone said he believes the unique circumstance was the result of the flight being rescheduled.

The video ends with a photo of Peone triumphantly standing in the jet's doorway.

When he arrived at the airport, he had no idea he was the only passenger. "She wasn't sure there was a need to make an announcement but I told her: "Oh please make the announcement" and pulled out my phone". That looks like an awesome experience!

" the airline said in a tweet to Peone. Do the announcement.' Obviously, everyone really enjoyed playing along", he explained to the Washington Post.

Peone, who is one of the founding members of CollegeHumor's original content department, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
