Wrong Seat

A man is getting on a plane when he loses his boarding pass. Unsure where to sit, he picks a random seat. Afterwards, each passenger that gets on sits in his assigned seat if it is available or a random seat if it is not. If there are a total of N seats and N passengers, what is the probability that the last passenger to get on the plane will sit in the correct seat?
