Alex Simon, 28 years old, a travel blogger from Austria was the only passenger who showed up in a Philippine Airlines Flight from Manila to Boracay. Alex was stunned when no one else boarded the aircraft – leaving him alone with two flight attendants and two pilots.
There are two main airports to Boracay, Kalibo International is around 40 kilometers away from the Island and the other one is Caticlan just 20 minutes boat ride to Boracay but currently accommodates small aircrafts such as ATRs and this Bombardier Dash plane, mostly with turboprop twin engines.
In his video, he had chance to chat with the pilots and the cabin crews before his flight took off.
Simon had luck as flight between Manila and Boracay were usually packed. It feels like travelling in a private plane with cabin crews serving you during your flight on your way to paradise.
He said: ‘It was an unforgettable feeling to take a flight to the one of the most beautiful islands of the world, but to be alone and feel like a superstar it made it more special.’
