A woman found herself alone on a flight in the US after a booking mix-up.

Reddit user shadybaby22 said after her flight was cancelled, most of the passengers were moved to a new flight - but she was never informed about the changes.

"I realised something was wrong when I was the only one in the waiting area 45 minutes before take-off," she wrote on Reddit.

"One of the airport agents came over while I was waiting and asked if that was the flight I was waiting for, then said: 'I knew this would happen'.

"When my flight was cancelled about eight hours earlier, a confused agent gave me and half the passengers a seat for [a later plane]."

By the time another agent realised everyone could get on a flight that left earlier, the woman said she had left the airport and was not contacted about the update.Her post attracted plenty of attention and questions from curious Reddit users.

The woman said it was a short flight so she didn't ask for any food or drinks, and she didn't get any special treatment.

There was only one flight attendant on board, and the woman said she tried to avoid making eye contact with them during the safety demonstration.
