Woman falls asleep in Air Canada flight, wakes up alone in dark 24.6.2019
Montreal: A woman boarded an Air Canada flight earlier this month, fell asleep after takeoff and woke up alone in a dark, parked plane, apparently forgotten about by ground staff. Tiffani Adams's story was posted by a friend on Air Canada's Facebook page, drawing incredulous reactions from readers and a request for details from the airline. According to the post, Adams was flying from Quebec to Toronto Pearson International Airport when she fell asleep, aided by the fact that she'd ended up with a whole row of seats to herself. She woke up in "pitch black," with the plane having landed and apparently been towed away from the airport, after passengers and crew had disembarked.
