She says she then managed to get the main door of the aircraft open: "I hang out the door trying to get the attention of ground crew I can see Pearson's [Airport] lights but too far away I'm where the aircrafts park overnight there is no one around".

She said the incident had left her anxious and scared and she has had difficulty sleeping since.

Ms Adams said on Facebook that she woke up "around midnight [a few hours after the flight landed] freezing cold still trapped in my seat in complete darkness".

Adams having woken up on the dark plane says she was unable to contact help after discovering her phone was out of battery and there was no power outlet to recharge it on the parked plane.

"I got super comfy reading my book, happy I scored my row all to myself", she said on Facebook.

An Air Canada spokesperson told The Independent the airline was reviewing the incident and was in contact with the passenger.

Luckily for Adams, she somehow managed to reach the cockpit where she found a torch.

"Now I'm hanging out the door reflecting the flashlight off the side of the plane (figuring reflective exterior will catch someone's attention in the distance)".

Air Canada have since called Adams twice to apologize and say they're now conducting an investigation to determine how the plane's crew managed to miss her before disembarking the aircraft.

Adams said she told the man that she was "wondering the same" thing.

She successfully opened the door but could not climb down the plane so she sat with her feet swaying hoping someone would spot her.

Ms Dale called Toronto Pearson Airport and told them of Ms Adams' whereabouts. In 2010, a British law professor flying on Air Canada's regional discount carrier, Air Canada Jazz, was awakened by a mechanic after the plane was taken to a hangar at Vancouver International Airport, ABC News reported. The woman who had been travelling from Quebec to Toronto on 9th June, had fallen asleep on the 90-minute flight.

After pilots landed the flight at its diverted location at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City, officers boarded the plane to take Ganus into custody. After falling asleep during the ride, she awoke several hours later to find herself alone in an empty, darkened cabin.

Adams says she hasn't been able to get much sleep since the incident due to recurring night terrors and waking up afraid that she's locked up alone in the dark.
