Buy one ticket and have a whole plane for youI did not get the proper one word to describe this rare happening. Luck? Lottery?Jackpot? What you call that?
It is about news I read a day ago. India Today titled it "Man flies solo from Mumbai to Dubai on 360-seater flight for Rs 18k." Moneycontrol headline was "Jet, set, swag: Man posts video of flying solo on Emirates' Mumbai-Dubai flight".
The details. "The United Arab Emirates stopped flights from India due to Covid situation. And passengers who had transited through India in the last fourteen days are also prohibited to enter UAE from any point. However an exception was that" UAE nationals, holders of UAE golden visas and members of diplomatic missions who comply with the revised published COVID 19 protocols will be exempt for travel,"
Mr Bhavesh Jhaveri is a UAE Golden Visa holder. The plane anyway, was to return to UAE. And Jhaveri was the only one who booked a ticket for that day. As one who had boarded about 240 flights, mostly in business class, he booked only an economy ticket now as he thought there won't be any rush.
But it was more than that for him. He was the solo passenger and he was welcomed on board by name. The in-flight announcements were also addressed to him by name; like, 'Mr.Jhaveri, please fasten your seat belt; Mr Jahveri we are going to land' etc..
What you call that? Mostly a once-in-a life happy event only. Isn't it? If at all there is such an offer it will be" Buy one ticket and have a whole plane for you"
