One woman has been dubbed “the world’s luckiest passenger” after nabbing a flight to Guangzhou completely free of any other passengers thanks to that snow storm earlier this week that also happened to leave 100,000 people stranded together at the Guangzhou Railway Station.
Amid blizzard-induced CNY chaos in Wuhan, the woman, surnamed Zhang, snatched an entire plane all for herself after all other passengers on flight CZ2833 were moved on to an earlier plane. Zhang flew solo, while others traveling the other way weren’t quite so lucky:
She thus enjoyed personalized service from flight attendants and got to roam the cabin at her leisure. “I felt so happy, it was a rare life experience for me and it was new,” shared Zhang on her Weibo. “I felt like a rockstar.”
Zhang’s post received hundreds of shares and comments, with most netizens congratulating her on her incredible fortune during the world’s largest migration, one Weibo user commented: “Sister, you are clearly the world’s luckiest passenger – cherish it.”
Still, some pressed netizens were compelled to get in some bitching, suggesting that Zhang’s treatment was “too extravagant” and a waste of fuel. “Given the Chinese New Year timing when thousands of people are getting crushed while just trying to go home, isn’t this wasteful?” bemoaned one user.
Apparently the “rockstar” treatment didn’t put Zhang too out of pocket either — the cost of her ticket was estimated at around 1,200 yuan.
