Must-see: Delta flight with only 2 passengers travels from Cleveland to New York (PHOTOS)

Man live-tweets from nearly empty plane

KRMG – Tulsa, Okla.

CLEVELAND —

Best. Flight. Ever.

A Delta Air Lines plane headed from Cleveland to New York was scheduled to leave at 7:15 a.m. Jan. 12. That trip was canceled, leaving Chris O’Leary of New York on a 9:39 a.m. flight. But Delta delayed that trip and rebooked most of the passengers onto other flights. However, O'Leary had returned to his hotel and missed those chances.

When he came back to the airport, he was put aboard a plane with no other passengers. “Got a personal safety briefing from my two flight attendants," O’Leary tweeted before the plane left. 

A few minutes later, another message said, “The thrill is gone, you guys. Just as we were about to push back, they reconnected the jet bridge to let a second passenger on the flight."

Chris told ABC News that the two didn’t talk. 

We’re all accustomed to full flights, but when planes are needed in other cities for connections, they do sometimes fly with reduced crowds.
