Back several years ago I flew DEL - CDG on a 767: I would say the flight was less than 20% full (all pax were seating alone, several rows from each others !)
Was only an "accident" as frequencies have now increased (and the CDG DEL was 100% loaded).

I wanted to know if you experienced almost empty flights (only several pax).
And is this route closed now ?

Anycase the flight was cancelled ? (excluding Dec 25)

Thanks for the input !

Well, I've been on some Swiss-flights lately, and especially the swiss domestic routes tend to be very "weak". A few weeks ago, I flew BSL-ZRH (2 Pax),
ZRH-LUG (Rather good, 25 Pax in a Saab 2000), LUG-GVA (With 4 Pax), and
GVA-BSL with 5, all numbers including me.

i was on a Manchester, UK to Amsterdam flight on a Cathay Pacific 747 back in 1993 and there were about 15-20 pax on board. of course the flight continued to Hong Kong and i saw a lot of people waiting to board the flight in AMS.

I flew on a Canadian Dash8-100 from Vancouver to Seattle back in 1997. There were 2 other people on that flight; one at the front, one in the iddle, and I was seated in the last row. It was weird practically having an entire aircraft to yourself.

As far as I can guess, Air Canada operates that route now

I was at San Diego awaiting a return Trans States flight to LAX when I was asked if I wanted to take the earlier flight "because we've a couple of spare seats"...

...they weren't kidding. The entire aircraft was empty. My own private Jetstream 31 the whole way. Big grin

Thanks for the excellent stories !

What a mixed feeling: you would love to have all flights with only 2/3 pax but several flights like this and the route is likely to be cut ....

I once flew LHR-DUS on a BA 763 a few years ago on the evening of a January 1st.
There must have been no more than 15 or 20 passengers on this flight, which was positioning for the early morning service from DUS back to LHR.

Despite travelling in Economy, it was an all-you-can-eat and -drink experience. The crew was litteraly giving those miniature wine and spirit bottles away.  Big thumbs up This was at before the advent of "Bistro Bags", so there was actually a substantial dinner even in Y.

I flew a CO flight from IAH to MSY and I was the only person on a 757 and I am not kidding. This was back when CO ran 2 flights really close to each other and generally they tried to get as many on the first as they could, I was running behind and they flew the flight with just me. The flight attendants didn't even bother to do the safety demonstration. It was quite an experience, albeit only a 45 min. flight.

I flew QF's B747SP, SIN-CGK on June 1998. It's just after the huge riot in Jakarta. Although the flight was continuing to SYD, it was very empty. I had the whole row (10 seats, in 3-4-3 config) for myself. There's less than 20 pax in Y, and another 8 pax in F and C.

I flew 11 years ago from HEL to ATH for christmas ( Finnair use to fly directly to Athens back then ) on a MD-80 and there 3 pax + me.
It was quite funny. An elder couple on the first row, me around row 15 and one businessman on the very noisy last row.

Well, service was excellent and had long chats with the pilots back then

I was on a flight from MEL to OOL in 1996, just before the Christmas rush period. There couldn't have been more than 20 passengers on the QF 737. The captain actually invited all of us to have a look at the cockpit for a while.

When I was in the Air Force, I was heading to Saudi Arabia on a military charter one time. Northwest was flying the charter on this particular trip, which went from Philly to Frankfurt, and then on in to Saudi. The aircraft was a DC-10, and there were literally more flight attendants on board than there were passengers. If you have to be on an airplane for 16 hours, this was the way to go.

Flew a United B727 from Denver to Phoneix a few years ago with only 3 passengers onboard which includes myself. The funny part was as we boarded we realised that we had been given seats together in a row of 3. Needless to say we soon spread out.

There was an entertaining posting like this a couple of years ago.

My experience was on an Ansett 737-300 going from Brisbane to Cairns sometime during August 1994. There was me and two other pax on board. Talk about impressive thrust to weight ratio on take off! I was upgraded to Business Class and the drink that they gave me before take off went flying rearward when we took off. Great fun!

On Christmas Eve in 2001, I flew on a 9:40 p.m. flight from Orlando to Atlanta. The flight was on a 777 (it was the one with the Salt Lake City Olympic livery.) There were only 17 on the flight, and when we were boarding, they took our boarding passes and gave us new ones, which confused many of us. As it turns out, they put all of us in First Class! What a flight!

FL DC-9 TPA- MIA, 6 people, right after a full leg where every seat was filled between TLH- TPA. We all got the whole can of soda here too...

Although these flights are not good for airlines, I love them. It gives me a chance to talk with the flight attendents, more than on full flights.

When Orient Thai first flew their B742 into Singapore last year, they were supposed to depart to Kuala Lumpur. Upon requesting his Airways clearance, ATC asked him for his POB (people on board), to which the pilot replied, "We have NEGATIVE POB" to a stunned ATC, who thought she heard wrongly. Big grin

Then again, I remember after the Bali bomb blasts, SIA sent down a couple of 747-400s to Bali to pick pax up. On the way down apparently, there was only 1 passenger onboard, and she was in Y Big grin

On several occasions during the past five years I have flown between LHR and CTN with SAA where I was the only person in F. On one such a flight the crew told me that there were only 75 pax in the rest of the aircraft. You can imagine how I enjoyed the service on these flights. This happened about 5 times. In more recent times, I'm glad to report, the flights have been very full on each trip.
