What started off as an innocuous request to switch seats on an airplane developed into a full-fledged love story that the Internet cannot get enough of. When Rosey Blair and her boyfriend boarded their flight to Dallas, Texas, they discovered they weren't seated together. So Rosey requested the woman next to her to switch seats - and joked that maybe the woman's new seat partner "would be the love of her life".
That's exactly what seems to have happened, going by Rosey's Twitter thread that documents the unfolding of the airplane romance between the woman and her seat partner, who has since been identified as Euan Holden. The thread has gone massively viral, and we'll just let you read about this super sweet rom-com in real life:
Last night on a flight home, my boyfriend and I asked a woman to switch seats with me so we could sit together. We made a joke that maybe her new seat partner would be the love of her life and well, now I present you with this thread.- Rosey Blair (@roseybeeme) July 3, 2018
When the plane landed, the two appeared to go to baggage claim together
The love story had hundreds of thousands of people hooked, with Rosey's tweets being 'liked' and 'retweeted' more than a million times in all. You can read the whole thread here.
The Internet wasted no time in nicknaming the guy "plane bae", and he was later identified as a former Major-league soccer player, Euan Holden.
The mystery woman is a little more hesitant to reveal her identity, but Rosey reports that she "feels positively" about all the attention
So here are my updates: I have spoken to #planebae@EuanHolden and have heard that our mystery woman is still unsure about the spotlight but feels positively about all of this. You might see some of us on your tv tomorrow morning.- Rosey Blair (@roseybeeme) July 4, 2018
Looks like a happy ending to us!
