While most of us dream of traveling in private jets like celebrities, one couple is making superstars — and everyone else, for that matter — jealous after having an entire plane to themselves.
One couple got the experience of a lifetime, and now there’s proof that dreams really do come true.
One really lucky couple was fortunate enough to experience an entire plane ride by themselves. Want a window seat? Take your pick. Need to go to the bathroom? It’s all yours. Want to dance like nobody’s watching? You better werk.
UK couple Kyle McNicol and Carrie Fisher were beyond thrilled when they realized they were the only people flying from Krabi, Thailand to Penang, Malaysia on their Firefly flight. Fisher recalled the unforgettable experience on her blog.
“On arrival at Krabi airport we made our way to the check in desk and handed over our passports, we were shocked to hear, ‘Oh very special flight for you today,'” she wrote.
She continued, “The two guys checking our passports started laughing and saying, ‘Oh, just you two?’ Turns out that we were about to board the flight and fly solo!”
It would be a special flight, indeed — and Fisher captured it all on Instagram.
As they made it to their plane with “the propellors outside,” one of the flight attendants gave them a brief security rundown and then the couple was free to choose their own seats.
“The next hour and 10 minutes passed quickly, we spent the time seat hopping and McNicol has now added to his facial injuries by doing the slug,” Fisher blogged.
She explained McNicol’s dance move is similar to the worm, and now we’re even more jealous of their amazing experience.
“It was one of the best flights I’ve ever been on, and the staff though awkward at first, it was the first time this had happened to them too, were brilliant.”
Even though the couple got the celebrity treatment during their solo flight, they still had to wait for their bags like the rest of us normal people.
“Feeling like VIP’s, I was shocked that someone didn’t collect our two lonely bags off the carousel for us. Kyle’s going to need some luck now that I’ve had a taste for the good life,” Fisher blogged.
Like the popular saying goes, all good things must come to an end. Fisher told Mashable via Twitter that she’s ready to fly with other passengers again.
