Flying typically sucks, especially if you're not some fat cat who always rides in first class or has a private jet.

Being crammed in between two people for a few hours at a time while some little kid kicks the back of your seat is enough to drive anyone mad.

But this guy recently had a very different experience on his Delta Air Lines flight from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport to New York's LaGuardia International Airport.

Chris O'Leary, the editor of a beer news website who's from Brooklyn, N.Y., missed a notification telling him that his flight would be leaving late. On top of that, he then arrived at the airport late.

Everyone else on his flight had been rebooked on a different flight. So, when the time came for his flight to board, Chris was the only one left.
