When we had just one passenger on board, we would greet them by name offer them any seat on the aircraft.
The aircraft was a 1900 so we would offer them a headset to plug in to the intercom in seat 1A and left the cockpit door open so that they could see us working up front and they could hear what we were doing up front and hear our communication with ATC and company radios.

The IAD-DCA leg was a positioning flight, but UA gave it the same number as the flight from CAE to their IAD hub, so it was available to be booked. The travel agent booked me on this flight instead of a US non-stop because the flight time was what I asked for and the fare was acceptable. I didn't even notice the situation until I got to the airport in Columbia.

Of course I would not be onboard during the training, only on the positioning non-revenue legs. And I was alone in the cabin, with stewardesses caring for me, only for me (there were stewardesses because that was their only occasion to practice in real-life conditions some smoke evacuation drills: aircraft at low speed, opening the wing escape hatches and the rear stair altogether at maybe 6,000 ft. Before the drill I was requested to seat myself in the first row of the cabin, which was a backward-facing seat so by just looking down the alley I could see the ground from the open rear-stair. Fond memories!
