Quiet flight.

Flying from Bergamo to Gatwick tonight. There must be about 20 people on the flight. I have never been on a BA flight so empty but apparently they were rammed on the way out. As an added bonus this flight will get me to Silver.

Boarding complete.

I think you should make the most of it and sit beside someone.

Enjoy your flight, and Silver

Flying to MLA last year I think the pair of us had about the last 8 rows to ourselves, and even then the rows in front must have only had 15-20 people (excluding Club).

My record was 12 on a flight from MUC to LHR in 2013. Nuts.
My friend flew aeromexico and was one of 6 people. He was the only person with no bronze equivalent or above (who get comp upgrades when avail on SH) so the other 5 sat in business and he was in the front row of economy.

A few years back I was on the last flight back from Manchester. There were three of us. It was the days before BOB so the crew wheeled out the trolley and said we could help ourselves.
There's only so much you can drink on such a short flight.

My record is just 2 passengers to Paris early in the morning on Boxing day. Nearly 30 years ago now.

Shouldn't it be more, did you take the middle of the aircraft?

Just landed, row 22 on a A320, nobody was behind us. I thought boarding was complete when I posted in Bergamo but another 12 or so got on. Cabin crew took orders for food and drink and didn't use the trolley.

But did they still run out of BoB?

My record is 3 on a 747 from YYZ to LAX during the LA riots.
And the crew insisted on pulling down the screen in the nose section and showing the movie as it was the SOP. But the views of LA ablaze were memorable indeed.

Mine is 3 on a TPA-LGA flight that was delayed from 7pm to 2am. Others had better sense and didn’t stick it out. And to top it off I woke up on descent with ear pain that turned out to be an infection that grounded me for a month.

Had a pretty quiet flight down from EDI tonight. So much so that my seat was reassigned at the gate from 8A to 37A for balance reasons
