Woman Wakes Up Alone in a Darkened Plane

What is your worst nightmare? Is being left alone in a cold and dark plane with no one to contact too terrifying? 

Air Canada passenger Tiffani Adams experienced this horrifying nightmare. She was on her way from Quebec City to Toronto Pearson International Airport recently this month. 

Adams fell asleep during the flight and then upon waking up, she found herself alone in a cold, dark plane. Unfortunately, she can’t contact anyone since her phone ran out of battery and there was also no way to charge it.

Long story short. She survived this tragedy with the help of a flashlight and the attention of a luggage cart driver.

As of this writing, she is still experiencing anxiety and insomnia. Let’s hope for her full recovery. 

What would you do if you were Tiffany? Can you survive this horror?

I agree - whilst it's somewhat funny that the passenger failed to disembark because she fell asleep, it's conceivable that this could happen to someone who passes out due to a medical condition. In whichever case, the flight crew should do a final walkthrough/check to confirm that everyone's off the plane.

I've fallen asleep while we were still at the gate, and woke up after we were in the air, so I don't find it that incredible.
It's not like reports like this are uncommon. Here's a 2010 event, also on Air Canada - - "According to the passenger, a 31-year-old professor from the UK, he’d nodded off during his flight from Calgary to Vancouver and didn’t wake up until 90 minutes after the plane had landed. The passenger, who had begun the day in London before connecting to the Vancouver-bound flight in Calgary, says he’d been up for 24 hours when he finally fell asleep."
The crew is always supposed to check for someone onboard. There might be a child in need of assistance who was told to wait for the staff to help, or there might be someone who for fun wants to stay on the plan to see what happens, or there might be someone who took too a sedative or drank too much and cannot easily wake up.
