New York-based director Vincent Peone received instant online fame after he chronicled his "private jet" experience while on a recent Delta flight. His video went instantly viral with over 2 million views.
But now Delta Airlines claim Peone didn't actually fly on the plane. In fact, the plane didn't even take off, reported ABC News. According to the airline, it did taxi to the runway, but had to return to the gate due to a mechanical issue.
It took about 40 minutes to solve, but when the plane did take off, it didn't contain any passengers and was "completely empty," according to a Delta spokesperson.
Initially, Peone told The Washington Post: "I have never flown on a true private jet."
"But I have filmed on them before; I’ve physically been on them, but they were grounded. I think you should end the story with an invitation to a private jet for me. Invite anyone to actually fly me private."
