Air Canada investigating after passenger left asleep on empty plane

Air Canada investigating after passenger left asleep on empty plane

Dale said it was around 11:45 p.m when she received a message from O'Brien saying she woke up and was alone on the plane.

In the post, Adams states that she was on a flight home to Pearson Airport after a wonderful trip in Quebec when she ended up falling asleep halfway through the flight.

Air Canada says it is reviewing an incident in which a passenger claims she was left alone in a pitch-dark airplane after it landed in Toronto.

Once she got to the airport, a representative from Air Canada asked O'Brien if she was okay and offered her a limo and a hotel, which she wrote that she declined.

'I think I'm having a bad dream, ' Adams recalled thinking as she awoke in the gloomy and desolate cabin.

Ms Adams briefly called a friend but was cut short when her phone's battery died. Attempts to charge the phone failed as the power was out on the plane.

Adams says she managed to open the door to the plane but was faced with a drop to the ground as there is no way for her to get down. "He is in shock asking how the heck they left me on the plane".

Air Canada confirmed the incident to The Independent and said it is investigating.

"As someone with and anxiety disorder as is I can tell you how terrifying this was". Air Canada did not respond to a request for comment late Sunday, but confirmed to the AP that the incident did happen.

The flight attendant said that when she tried to calm Ganus down, he flew into a rage and punched her in the chest.

"We are still reviewing this matter so we have no additional details to share, but we have followed up with the customer and remain in contact with her", the airline said in a statement.

However, she eventually came around several hours later, only to find herself still buckled up in her seat, "freezing cold" and in "complete darkness".

As panic began to set in, O'Brien said she entered the cockpit to search for something, anything that might help.

Adams said she sat with her legs dangling out of the aircraft while sending out distress signals with the flashlight. With the aid of the flashlight, she was then able to find the latches to open the main door and continued trying to catch someone's attention.
