ASPEN, Colo. (WTHR) - There aren't many feelings in air travel like getting the extra leg room of an exit row, landing an aisle seat, or finding a flight attendant that hooks you up on the drink cart.

But what about having the whole plane to yourself?

That was the unusual experience of director and cinematographer Vincent Peone. He was the only passenger on his flight from Aspen, Colorado to Salt Lake City.

The filmmaker chronicled the unique experience on his cell phone.

After boarding the plane, Peone was personally greeted by the captain. He also filmed service personnel loading sandbags into the cargo hold of the plane to make up for the lack of passengers.

The flight attendant's usual welcome announcement was also modified for the unusual situation.

"Good evening, Vincent, and welcome aboard," she said.

The worst part of the whole flight? Probably that it only lasted 45 minutes.
