Solo passenger on commercial flight gets the private jet experience

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. What could be more luxurious than flying a private jet at a commercial airline price? When Paul Wilkinson arrived in an airport in Portugal, he found he was the only passenger on a plane to Ireland. During the three-hour flight, he got to chat with the pilot, and the crew called him King Paul. We don't know if they let him move out of a middle seat, but he definitely had no trouble finding his suitcase when he got to baggage claim. It's MORNING EDITION.
