In his interview with The Post, Peone repeatedly suggested he flew alone on the plane.

“It reminded me of an experience you’d have flying in the ’50s or something. It was very positive, and [the flight crew] thought it was funny. But I was like: Why would they even do this? Why even fly the plane? Delay me or cancel or something!" he said in the initial interview.
