CNN has the story of Tom Wagner who managed to stay on-board after all the passengers and the crew left the plane. And then the lights went out…
Apparently a very deep sleeper, he didn't wake up when the plane landed. And somehow when airline employees were doing their usual sweep of the plane, they missed him. Dozens of passengers left the plane and so did the flight crew.
Wagner said he walked around the plane in the dark trying to figure out the best thing to do.
He said eventually workers opened the plane doors and, startled, asked him what he was doing in there.
He should have stayed a bit longer and he'd have gotten a free flight the next day 🙂
