I know not quite the same but I l flew on an American MD11 JFK-LHR on thanks giving day in 1995
with only 23 people on board which was rather pleasant. In 2006 I took an Alaskan MD80 ANC-FAI with 7 pob
and I also flew a Delta 763 LHR-BOS this year with 40 on.

I was the only passenger on a Southwest 737-700 flight from BWI-EWR several years ago. The F/A in the aft galley came forward to tell me it was a record for him as well - his previous low was 6 pax! Being Southwest, it was actually kinda awkward deciding where to sit. And you better bet I paid attention to the safety briefing!
Before that, my record low was 2 - myself and another pax - on a USAirways (Piedmont) DHC-8 from LGA-MHT back in 2002.

IAD-SYR on USX, 2 pax on B-1900
SYR-PHL on USX, less than 10 pax multiple times on DH-8
ROC-SYR on USX, 2 pax on DH-8
SYR-ROC on DL, 5 pax on 727-200
MCO-BWI on WN, 8 pax on 737
MCO-DEN on UA, less than 30 pax on 727-200
PHL-MUC on US, less than 50 pax on 767-200
That's all I can remember right now. I feel like the PA 747 SYD-LAX was light, but don't remember the details. Same for a couple of ADL-ASP and ASP-DRW and return flights.

A 9W ATR-72 flying BOM-BLR in 2000. Under 8 passengers, and I was related to two of them. They still had a full meal service then, and I remember the F/As coming around for seconds...and thirds...and fourths. So many veggie puffs were had.

I flew on a United Airlines 777 from FRA-IAD in March of 2013 with about 40'ish people on board. I was going to ask about the potential for an upgrade, however, having the entire last 4 rows of the plane (both sides) to myself enticed me to stay. It was nice laying out across the rows and doing my own thing for 8+ hours.

13 of us on an AA MD-82 flying MSP-DFW in January 2012. They seated us all in F and gave us the requisite service, which was only the second-best part. The first was the takeoff--short and very sweet. If you haven't read my trip report, shame on you.
Flying friendly for a while, but is that a widget I see in the rear-view mirror?

January 3rd, 2014--Delta flight 1925. MD-90 ATL-BWI that departed at 7:25AM. There were about 30 pax on board. On top of getting my own row of three seats to myself, the pilot performed at catapault takeoff!!
June 29th, 2013--US Airways a319 (Star Alliance-702UW) CLT-MYR leaving CLT around 8:30pm. I was one of about 20 people onboard.
My dad was on a US Airways flight a couple of months ago from DCA to CHS. The E-170 had a grand total of 11 passengers onboard!

Recently I decided to give Etihad Regional a try. We were 4 Pax on the Saab 2000 ZRH-GVA. They seem to do really well
Back in 2006 I flew Condor DXB-FRA. In DXB an astounding 17 Pax boarded the 767 which took us to SKG where a load of people returning from a cruise stormed the plane, leading to a full house on SKG-FRA. However, with all of the DXB Pax moved to the Premium Cabin the second leg was quiet enjoyable as well

British Airways daytime flight Narita to London on a 747-400... 18 passengers. Why? It was December 25! My connecting flight Sydney to Narita which departed around 10pm on December 24 on a Qantas 747 only had 23 passengers. Pretty wild! Qantas FAs were amazing and let us sit anywhere. They were absolutely charming and very very attentive, addressing us by name. The BA FAs however, disappeared to the upper deck and weren't seen for a majority if the flight. They were slow to respond to calls and were a bit surly when serving the meals. BA did give us special Christmas food however which was nice, and upon arrival at LHR, we were in the car about 25 mins after docking...

Dec 24th 1988 ski charter MUC-BHX - my family of 4 were the only booked pax - the bus took us out to the a/c and I just about had a Beatlemania moment when I saw we'd be on a Scibe Airlift B707-320 acmi-ed by the tour operator!
Cabin crew of 5 and flight deck of 3 meant we were outnumbered 2 to 1 by the crew - we sat in First class of course (ski charter ?!) and logged my one and only 707
