Steven Schneider of Lawrenceville was the only person who was not contacted by the airline because they had a wrong phone number. “At first I felt really bad, because I didn’t want the plane to only make the trip because of me. But after talking to a flight attendant at the gate, she said the plane needed to go back to Atlanta anyway. She called this an empty leg flight”, he confessed. The airline explained that the reason they operated the flight was to have the plane positioned back in Atlanta so it could be in place for a departure the next day. “We’re glad this customer enjoyed a somewhat rare solo experience,” Delta Air Lines added.
