Beth VerSteeg was headed to Washington D.C. when her original flight from Rochester, NY was cancelled. Seems likely for this time of year when flying, but in case you missed it, Versteeg ended up getting pretty lucky.
When her flight was originally cancelled, the passengers were accidentally moved to the "crew only" flight. The airline quickly realized its mistake, contacted the affected people and put them on an earlier flight. However, VerSteeg made her way back to her parents’ house to wait until the later flight and missed the announcement.
VerSteeg said she only realized something was wrong when she noticed she was the only one in the gate waiting area. An airline agent questioned her about taking the flight before stating “I knew this would happen.” VerSteeg took the flight as the sole passenger and got the picture to prove it. She shared the selfie full of empty cabin seats. Maybe the craziest part? The staff still went through safety demonstrations!
