The pilot made announcements like, hi there, Karon. You'll see Croatia on your left. A bit awkward for the airline Jet2, but they said flights do get empty as the season ends. Karon, for her part, is working on a crime novel. If she's looking for an eerie opening scene, how about an empty plane to Crete? Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
