    This is only because the flight was delayed and they rebooked everyone else and still needed the aircraft back at the hub. ;)

    Yeah I read his story about how he received the delay notifications and just stayed in the hotel until later. My guess is that if he had shown up at the airport earlier they would have rebooked him like they did everyone else, but the plane would have still flown even if empty, since the aircraft had to be in service regardless.

    I maintained jet card contract with Delta Air Elite a few years ago. They have their own fleet of biz jets, from 4-pax to G V class jets. They will also book a 737-size plane when circumstance calls for it. If they run out of jets, they can locate jets from other suppliers that will conduct flights on their behalf.
