In what has become the latest viral love story, followed on Twitter via #PlaneBae or #HunkyPlaneGuy, an actress named Rosey Blair asked a woman to swap seats so that she could sit next to her boyfriend.

Blair and her boyfriend Houston didn't get assigned seats next to each other like they had hoped so they figured they'd ask someone to switch with them.

As soon as the mystery woman switched seats, things got off to a flying start, with her and her new buddy beginning to flirt and talk about all of the things they had in common. When Blair posted a photo of the man's abs, eagle-eyed Twitter users were able to realize that it was Euan Holden's profile picture. "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".

A man sat down next to the woman, and they immediately hit it off.


Ms Blair also noted that both were personal trainers and vegetarians, and neither of them wore a wedding ring.

If there were any skeptics still unconvinced that love was in the air (plane), Blair kept the updates coming - and they did not disappoint.


After some detective work, Rosey's boyfriend found their Instagram accounts, which revealed that they were both single and both lived in Dallas.

The Twitter thread has received over 348,000 retweets and more than 868,000 likes since then.

"I walked on a plane just ready to get home and ended up sitting next to a lovely girl and had such a great time with on the flight", Holden said.

Blair said she even bought Wi-Fi in order to keep people informed of the blossoming romance.

Since the rise in social media notoriety, Holden updated his Twitter bio with the following: "Newly nicknamed 'Plane Bae'".
