There are so many mistakes you can make when booking flights. You could book for the wrong time. Or the wrong date. Or the wrong destination.
You could type too quickly because you’re just really excited about escaping your everyday routine for a little while and enter your surname as “Clrak” instead of “Clark” on your ticket and then spend two hours on hold with the airline trying to fix the issue caused by a few fat, hyperactive fingers.
Point being, more often than not, booking errors do not fall in the traveller’s favour.
Unless, of course, you are Reddit user shadybaby22, who found herself travelling on an ENTIRELY EMPTY PLANE when she was given a ticket for a flight meant for airline crew only.
The woman explained the error had occurred after her earlier flight from Rochester, New York to Washington D.C. (an hour and a half trip) had been cancelled.
Forty-five minutes before her new flight's departure, she noticed something was off when she was the only person waiting in line to board.
"One of the airport agents came over while I was waiting and asked if that was the flight I was waiting for then said, 'I knew this would happen'," she explained.
"When my flight was cancelled about eight hours earlier, a confused agent gave me and half the passengers a seat for the plane in the pic before another agent realised everyone could go on an earlier flight.
"They made an announcement on the speaker but I'd already left to go back to my parent's house nearby to wait for the next few hours. I was never contacted about the flight change."
