Brooklyn-based media strategist Chris O’Leary of the beer blog Brew York gained what he deemed “inexplicable” Internet fame after tweeting a shot of himself sitting in an otherwise empty commercial Delta flight between Cleveland and New York City.
Have to give lots of credit to the flight attendant, who took one of the best pictures of me in a long time. pic.twitter.com/UcZ8BZLop1

O’Leary appeared to be the only passenger aboard the long-delayed flight, until another flyer boarded just before the flight pushed back.
The thrill is gone, you guys. Just as we were about to push back, they reconnected the jet bridge to let a second passenger on the flight. ????
