According to Virtual Pinoy, Erispe who’s a new correspondent for People's Television Network (PTV) Philippines, it was the company that booked the flight for the news reporter.

But Philippine Airlines flight PR 2820 from Davao City to Manila had been rescheduled to an earlier time. While the airline managed to reach everyone, they were unable to contact Erispe. When she finally arrived at the airport, the plane had already flown.

Since the missed flight was not the passenger’s fault, the airline decided to proceed with the scheduled flight. This made Erispe the only passenger on the flight.

She wrote on Facebook:

“Hindi ko alam kung anong ibig sabihin or kung ano dapat kong isipin.

But ill be flying alone tonight sa plane. No other passenger, ako lang. Hehe

Kinakabahan ako, hahaha. Ikaw na po bahala Ama 😊”

She was eventually able to relax. She even had fun talking with the crew and taking some photos.

She would later post an update:

“Nakalipad po ako ng maayos and nakapagpalipat lipat ako ng upuan.

KUDOS TO Philippine Airlines NA NILIPAD PARIN AKO. THE BEST AIRLINE SO FAR. 🤗✔😍🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭”

And just like everyone who’s in a similar situation, she also had a good time moving from seat to seat across the airplane – because there’s really no one else to take up the seats.
