A man who fell asleep flying from Louisiana woke up at his layover in Houston, inside a dark, empty and locked plane.
It all started when he fell asleep in a window seat near the back of the airplane. When everyone deplaned at the layover, nobody woke Wagner up. He woke up in a pitch-black and cold cabin, and the aircraft doors were locked.
Luckily, his cell phone wasn’t dead.
“I called my girlfriend, and she thought I was crazy. I said, ‘Debbie I’m locked on the plane,’”
he told said. “I said, ‘I’m telling you the truth. You better go somewhere and get me off this plane.”
Half an hour later, workers boarded the aircraft and rescued Wagner. He said that they wanted him to keep the incident quiet, and put him up in a nearby hotel and gave him a $250 flight voucher to make the ordeal go away.
I would want a little more than that. Lifetime free flights please.
