U.S. passenger gets flight all to himself

That's the position director and CollegeHumor.com alumnus Vincent Peone found himself in while flying Delta Air Lines from Aspen, Colorado, to Salt Lake City en route to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport in the U.S. last week.

With no one else in sight, a member of staff can then be heard saying: "We're about to board our flight to Salt Lake City from the gate".

Over a speaker at the gate the Delta agent says: 'Will the only passenger on-board this flight kindly board at this time.

After the flight lands in Salt Lake City, Vincent takes a trip to the cockpit to say thank you to the pilots. With just the cabin crew and Peone aboard, the plane was seriously underweight.

"Good evening Vincent, and welcome aboard. If you need any assistance getting settled we're delighted to serve you", the flight attendant says in the video. "To ensure an on-time departure please remain in your seat", she said.

Mr Peone cuts to a still of him at the end of the video posing on the steps to his "private jet" with a drink in hand to the song "Up, Up and Away" by The 5th Dimension.

As for how Peone ended up on the solo flight - he explained to the Washington Post that the "flight was actually rescheduled, which I think I had everything to do with".

He said: "I'm Diamond Medallion [status], so Delta was very good to me".

"At the desk, they were like, 'I don't know if we even need to make the announcement, because it's just you.' I was like, 'Oh, no".

While Delta Airlines are yet to officially respond to Peone, it did respond to the video in a tweet.

"Hi Vincent! That looks like an awesome experience! Do the announcement.' Obviously, everyone really enjoyed playing along".

Peone, who is one of the founding members of CollegeHumor's original content department, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
