The Chinese New Year is upon us, which has led many people in China to try to travel home to be with their families. Terrible winter storms have made many people cancel their airline flights. Enough passangers cancelled their reservations for a flight from Wuhan Tianhe to Ghangzhou that, the People’s Daily reports, a woman named Zhang had the plane all to herself:
Monday's blizzard caused several flight delays in Wuhan, in central China's Hubei province. Flight CZ2833, from the city to Guangzhou, southeast China's Guangdong province was delayed for 10 hours. Most of the passengers had already changed to an earlier flight.
Zhang had a grand time on the 2-hour ride. She didn’t have to fight over armrests or listen to screaming babies. Instead, she switched seats often, chatted with the flight attendants, and shared a bag of oranges with the pilot.
When Zhang arrived at Guangzhou, she took a shuttle bus away from the airport. She was the only passenger on that vehicle as well.
