Travel heaven: Woman gets private flight on one of the busiest days of the year

Yesterday I wrote about the hellish experience that Chinese train passengers had in Guangzhou, where over 100,000 people were stuck due to delayed trains while they were trying to travel home for the Chinese New Year.

That same bad weather that caused chaos on the ground also caused problems for air travel, except one lucky woman somehow managed to benefit from the situation.

Ms. Zhang was flying from Wuhan to Guangzhou on China Southern Airlines, but her original flight was delayed. While the rest of the passengers on her flight opted to switch to other earlier flights, Ms. Zhang stuck with her original booking.

Her reward: Having the entire airplane to herself.

She posted her story on social media site Weibo, along with photos of herself with the crew.

Zhang told the BBC, “I felt so happy, it was a rare life experience for me and it was new. I felt like a rockstar.”

Of course, while some people rightfully understood why this would be a cool & unique event, others had to be negative and comment that it was wasteful to fly one person back – because that’s how the internet works, and that’s NOT how airlines work. You don’t just sit there waiting around for people to randomly show up for a flight.
