A man flying out for a skiing holiday had an unusually quiet flight as he had an entire plane to himself.

Skirmantas Strimaitis was the only passenger aboard the Boeing 737-800, which can seat up to 188 people, as he flew from Lithuanian capital Vilnius to Bergamo in northern Italy last month.

The only other people aboard the flight, which lasted more than two hours, were two pilots and five crew members.
Strimaitis told the Associated Press it was "a once-in-the-lifetime experience".

The Novaturas travel agency said it had chartered the plane to fly a group home from Italy, and to avoid flying empty on the outbound leg, one-way tickets were sold. Only one person bought one.

Usually airline related stories are either about some sort of aggression or how it was completely oversold, so this is a nice change. And, for anyone working for an airline, if this happens again and you want to give me a couple of tickets for free I could fill up the plane.
