A British Airways jumbo jet left Tokyo for London on Tuesday with only one passenger aboard, but an embarrassed B.A. spokesman still insisted, “it’s a very busy route.” Flight BA008 began its 11-hour journey with only one passenger because delays resulted in all the others being rerouted. The passenger, a Mrs. Yamamoto, who was seated in Economy class, had paid $2,900 and was given a Club Class seat because she checked in early for the trip to visit her husband, a student at Salford College of Music, 200 miles north of London.
