A Louisiana man who was on his way to California woke up on a dark, empty airplane at the Houston airport after apparently sleeping through the call to exit. Tom Wagner said, he was supposed to continue on to California, but slept through the calls to leave the plane and found himself locked inside the plane overnight. He called his girlfriend, who didn’t believe him at first. He was finally released after a crew servicing the plane found him and let him out. A spokesperson for the airline said their policy requires the crew to do a final sweep of the cabin and they were not sure how Wagner was left onboard. The company apologized and paid for hotel in Houston as well as provided Wagner with a $250 voucher for the inconvenience.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
