Two Strangers Found Love Mid-Flight And A Passenger Live-Tweeted The Whole Glorious Thing
Buckle up for the (in-flight) romance of our times.
Do you like love? Do you like air travel? Well fasten your seat belt, recline your chair -- heck, wave down the attendant for a beverage -- and settle in for the long haul, 'coz oh sweet child do we have a story for you.
It all started when Dallas actor and comedian Rosey, and her boyfriend boarded their Alaska Airlines flight home from New York on July 2 ...
Turns out, the dude who rolled up and sat next to this woman kinda actually was all that and a bag of freakin' chips.
Armed with her phone and an hour of free WiFi -- don't worry, she paid for more when it ran out -- Rosey proceeded to live tweet the pair's interaction throughout the flight, and lo and behold, they totally hit it off in a MAJOR WAY.
What followed was a full-blown mid-air romance and every moment was pure, pure bliss.
Ready for take-off? Here we go.
Hunky dude enters stage right ...
They're single and ready to mingle at 30,000 ft. Bless.
We're screaming TBH.
TED Talk = romance.
Ponytail down means business.
Strong first date vibe with the cheese board guys.
Meeting the fam ...
Big steps with the shared electronics.
Kiss, Kiss, KISS.
At this stage it's important to note that Rosey had her followers HOOKED.
Like, living for this pure love.
Oh hey there Monica?
We almost lost 'em but ...
Then it got REAL.
Our first glimpse at #planebae and #prettyplanegirl ... kinda.
Then OMG this.
Rosey and her BF blessed us with a post-flight update so we can now all breathe.
So what of the lovers themselves? Turns out #planebae knew he was being stalked the whole time, but was totally chill about it all.
Through the power of social media we now know his true identity and WOW hi there.
#planebae er ... we mean Euan was such a gent that he stepped in when some Twitter users questioned the truthfulness of Rosey's tale. He brought those receipts.
The identity of #prettyplanegirl is still unknown however the couple are working on it so sit tight y'all.
Let's now pause to give a shout out to Rosey and her man, who are now certified aviation matchmakers and all-round legends who deserve every award and accolade possible for getting those two ridiculously good-looking and well-suited strangers to HOOK UP.
We were thinking a parade or national holiday might be in order, but looks like all the talented couple wants by way of thanks is a gig.
We're off to book the next flight out of Dallas. Move over, Ms. Lewinsky.
