A woman who paid just £46 for a flight to Crete has spoken of her amazement at being the only passenger on board.
Karon Grieve, from Dunlop in Ayrshire, described her Jet2 flight from Glasgow to the Greek island – which normally carries 189 passengers – as “surreal”.
She was given the VIP treatment after two other passengers booked on the flight failed to turn up. Jet2 said it was “not unusual” for the final flight of the season to have fewer bookings than normal.
Ms Grieve, who was travelling to Crete to write a crime novel, said it was immediately obvious there were very few passengers when she turned up at the airport for her 16:30 flight on Sunday.
She said: “We were all on best friend terms before we’d even got on the plane.
“The captain was fantastic. She came and sat beside me while the first officer did all the flight checks and we were chatting away about the flight.”
While the plane was in the air, Ms Grieve said that the captain addressed her by name from the cockpit.
