In a viral TikTok video, Kevin Droniak shares his experience of misreading the time of his international flight and finding out just over an hour before takeoff. Instead of giving up, Droniak decides to take a helicopter to the airport in an attempt to make his flight on time.
The video showcases Droniak’s journey from his Manhattan apartment to the helipad, followed by a quick five-minute helicopter ride to JFK International Airport. Despite the tight schedule, Droniak successfully arrives at the airport with thirty minutes to spare before the doors close. He boards his flight to London Gatwick and expresses his relief in the video.
The TikTok video has gained significant attention, with nearly 6 million views and over 650,000 likes. Commenters praised Droniak for his creative solution and composure throughout the process. Some expressed their anxiety watching Droniak move slowly, while others marveled at his ability to remain calm in such a high-pressure situation.
Additionally, commenters noted the cost-effectiveness of Droniak’s decision. They pointed out that setting up a helicopter ride from Manhattan to JFK through Uber costs approximately $200, which can be comparable or even cheaper than a regular Uber ride during peak traffic conditions. Some commenters playfully commented on Droniak’s choice to fly Norse, a budget-friendly airline, after spending money on a helicopter ride.
Droniak’s story serves as a lesson in thinking outside the box and finding creative solutions to unexpected challenges. It also highlights the power of social media in sharing unique experiences and capturing the attention of millions of viewers.
