An Air Canada female passenger recalled her terrifying experience when she woke up inside of an dark and empty airplane after her flight from Quebec City to Toronto.
According to CTV, Tiffani Adams posted about the incident on Air Canada’s Facebook Page. She fell asleep during a 90-minute flight from Quebec City to Toronto on June 9. After the plane landed in Pearson International Airport, Adams was still sleeping when the aircraft was placed in a storage area.
“I wake up around midnight, few hours after [the] flight landed, freezing cold still strapped in my seat in complete darkness,”
She added that her phone was dead for hours and had no luck with using an outlet since the plane was completely shut downZ.
“I attempt to charge my phone by plugging into every USB port I could find—no luck because when they shut the aircraft down there is no power whatsoever… since I can’t charge my phone to call for help I’m full on panicking because I want off this nightmare ASAP.”

Adams walked to cockpit and attempted to radio for help but the plane’s power was still off. She found a flashlight and used the light to signal for help through the windows. Adams also found a way to open the plane window but noticed the dangerous drop.
“Now I’m facing a 40-50ft drop to the pavement below… I search frantically for a rope so I can climb down to safely. [The] flight attendants seat is right by the door I opened, but the seatbelt is too short to hang from, so back to my distress signals.”

A baggage attendant noticed Adams and brought a ladder truck to rescue her.
“He is in shock asking how the heck they left me on the plane. I’m wondering the same… when my seat an inch back or my tray [is] down flight crew take notice, but yet you missed a person still strapped into her seat and just all go on home?”
Adams said a representative offered her a limo ride home or an overnight stay at a hotel but she declined the offers. The airline is still in contact with Adams and she says she suffers from night terrors since the incident.
“I haven’t got much sleep since the reoccurring night terrors and waking up anxious and afraid I’m alone locked up someplace dark,”
