No travel trouble here; Man gets flight to himself

- Don’t have a private plane? That didn’t matter for one man who was the only passenger

A Georgia man says he enjoyed an unusual private flying experience where he was the only passenger on a Delta Air Lines plane flying to Atlanta.

Steven Schneider of Lawrenceville, Georgia, told an Atlanta TV station he arrived at the New Orleans airport on Tuesday and saw no passengers waiting at his gate.

“I was so nervous,” Schneider said. “I couldn’t believe it. I felt like I missed my flight!”

Turns out, most of the passengers originally scheduled on that flight -- which had been delayed a couple of times -- decided to take an earlier flight, or postpone travel until the next day.
