Lithuanian man gets uncommon experience of flying alone on commercial flight to Italy
A man who loaded onto a plane to Italy a month ago was in for an amazing astonishment when he learned he was the only traveler on the jetliner.
Skirmantas Strimaitis, of Lithuania, was going from his nation’s capital city of Vilnius to Bergamo, an Italian city approximately an hour from Milan, on March 16 when nobody else loaded onto the plane.
The Boeing 737-800, which can for the most part hold up to 188 travelers, was unfilled. A photograph Strimaitis took of the uncommon experience demonstrated only him on board the plane, save for an evident airline steward behind him.
Going to Italy to ski, he delighted in the organization of two pilots and five team individuals.
The Novaturas travel organization told The Associated Press that it had contracted the plane to fly a group home from Italy, and to abstain from flying vacant, single direction tickets were sold — however just a single individual got one.
What’s more, with respect to Strimaitis, he appeared to appreciate the hours-long flight, saying it was “a once in the lifetime experience.”
