Rosey Blair and her boyfriend were flying from New York to Texas. They asked a young woman if she minds switching seats and moving a row up so they could sit together. The young woman didn’t mind at all. The couple made a joke that, “maybe her new seat partner would be the love of her life” and well…
“I thought it would be funny if it was a handsome man, and then – like magic – a handsome man appeared!”
The couple documented them the entire flight and kept everyone updated with pictures and snippets of their conversations.
Apparently, they are both fitness enthusiasts and were talking and smiling at each other before they even left the runway. They got a cheese board to share, talked about their families, (and showed pictures!) talked about marriage, and followed each other on Instagram. Everyone on Twitter who was following the feed was hoping they would fall in love!
The story went viral, and caused the creation of two new hashtags, #PlaneBae and #CatchingFlightsANDFeelings. Even celebrities got involved!
In the end, these newfound friends left the airport together! The woman has chosen not to be identified but the man, Euan Holden, was more than happy to keep the people entertained! So far he’s been on The Today Show, and Good Morning America!
Had the couple not asked the woman to switch seats, these two would have never met! Euan also posted on Twitter, “Sat here thinking about how different the day would of been if I missed my flight.” Who knows, maybe this was the beginning of their life together, all because of a seat change! 🙂
There will always be a reason why you meet people. Either you need them to change your life or you’re the one that will change theirs. -Angel Flonis Harefa
