Sleeping passenger wakes up ‘alone’ and ‘locked up’ in empty plane

A woman who was locked alone inside a cold and dark plane earlier this month says she is suffering from anxiety and night terrors, CTV News reports.

On June 9, Tiffani Adams returned to Toronto after visiting a friend in Quebec for her birthday, an experience she said was “one of the best weekends I’ve ever had.”

That changed suddenly when Adams woke up inside an Air Canada plane several hours after it had landed.

No one else was aboard.

“I think I’m having a bad dream,” Adams wrote in a Facebook post. “When my seat an inch back or my tray down flight crew take notice but yet you missed a person still strapped into her seat and just all go on home?!?!”

Adams called a friend, but her phone’s battery soon died and she could not recharge it, leaving her completely in the dark.

That’s when she started having a panic attack.

Adams eventually located a flashlight, opened up an exterior door and pointed the light at airport ground crews. Someone driving a luggage truck saw her and drove to the plane, allowing her to exit safely.

Air Canada employees offered to get her a limo and hotel room, but she said all she wanted was to get home.

“I haven’t got much sleep since the reoccurring night terrors and waking up anxious and afraid I’m alone locked up someplace dark,” Adams wrote.

Air Canada has since launched an investigation. The company confirmed the veracity of the account and said it has stayed in contact with the woman, according to NPR.

Adams said Air Canada officials apologized to her.
