“Welp. Guess it’s going to be one of those days,” Christ O’Learly tweeted on Monday.

He began documenting his airport struggle of his flights being delayed on his Twitter account @ohhleary .

His flight was delayed almost four hours.  He tweeted this pic:

But when he got on the plane, he was greeted by nobody. Everyone else had a different idea:

He said: I’m not joking.


He says he didn’t expect to get so much attention to his almost solo flight.

He also tweeted, “This has been a interesting day. Who knew the simple act of getting on the plane you’re supposed to could amuse so many people?
