'I would go crazy'

There are few greater joys than getting on a airplane and discover that the seat next to you is empty. But what if you had all the airplane to yourself?

It’s called a “ghost flight,” and a man recently found himself in the strange and somewhat spooky scene after booking a trip to Fiji for his birthday.

According to his now viral TikTokpublished on January 1 On January 16, the trip took place in January 2022. It was then that Robbie Allen (@robbieallen) arrived at Sydney airport in Australia, only to be greeted by a ghost town once he arrived at its gate.

Not that Allen booked a budget airline to get there: He was flying Virgin Airlines and booked a business class ticket to make his trip more luxurious. He didn’t know that he probably could have saved the money since the entire plane was at his disposal.

“When I got on, they told me, ‘You’re the only person, you’re the only person on the plane,’” Allen says in the video.

At one point, the captain came over to sit and chat with him, and throughout the flight, staff came by to check in and offer him “whatever” he wanted.

In other words, Allen was living his best life during the four and a half hour drive.

“I literally like having the whole plane to myself,” he laughs as he moves the camera around to show how empty the flight is. “I’m the VIP!”

In the comments, many people weighed in on how they would have reacted in their shoes.

“This is literally an introvert’s dream!” one person wrote. “It’s me. I’m the introvert hahaha.”

“Having the bathroom all to yourself!” someone else exclaimed.

“That must have been so sick,” another user added.

However, some people said they would miss each other.

“My anxiety could never…” admitted one person.

“How lonely would that be?” someone else said.

“I’d be FUCKED by empty destination thinking I had the wrong door!” another person shared.

Allen had a similar initial reaction, writing, “It was creepy at first, but then amazing” in her caption.

Believe it or not, some people even shared similar experiences on other flights.

“This happened to me on a flight from Japan to Australia,” one person wrote. Really. I was the only person on the plane.”

“This was exactly what happened when I flew to Dubai, but it was a couple of us,” someone else said. “We got together and talked about it.”

In the end, Allen’s great flight got even better when he went to baggage claim and immediately found his bag with no problem.

The ride itself was pretty sweet too. In several follow-up videos, the Tik Toker he shared views from his hotel in Fiji, where the staff treated him like royalty for his birthday, and relaxed by the pool for most of his stay.

“Had an amazing trip, as I always do when I go to Fiji,” Allen wrote in one of his Tik Tok subtitles “There is so much to do and all the resorts are beautiful!”
