Woman Falls Asleep on Air Canada Flight, Wakes Up Alone in Pitch-Black Plane

June 24, 2019

Last week, Tiffani O'Brien fell asleep during a 90-minute Air Canada flight from Quebec City to Toronto. When she woke up, the entire plane was empty, freezing and pitch black. Indeed, the flight crew left her on the plane upon landing. Eventually, she managed to open the aircraft's front door and realized it was parked far from the airport. Ultimately, someone driving a luggage cart spotted her and gave her a ride to the airport. While Air Canada says it's reviewing how its employees allowed such a thing to happen, O'Brien wrote on Facebook that she's been suffering "reoccurring night terrors" since her "nightmare" experience, and a friend tells The Washington Post that she's declining to comment any further on the matter on the advice of her lawyer.
