Seconds later, that exact same thing happened and the world was watching with them as they documented the interactions between the two strangers.

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. When the woman and her new male seat partner-described by Blair as "hunky"-started to hit it off, Blair breathlessly chronicled the whole thing in an Instagram story more than 40 slides long, which she then posted to Twitter".

Her Twitter thread detailed every move made between the seatmates (and potential soul mates).

Ms Blair also noted that both were personal trainers and vegetarians, and neither of them wore a wedding ring. She received multiple messages from people reacting to the story and even gained some attention from celebrities who saw the thread.

After the flight, Blair photographed the two passengers walking with their luggage through Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport together. "Blair said her boyfriend found the fellow passengers" Instagram accounts and confirmed they were single, based in Dallas and now following each other on social media.

That's when the "love at first flight" began, and the #PlaneBae hashtag was born.

When the stranger agreed they joked about how the plane ride may end up for the woman who switched her seat.

"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", Euan Holden, who has since been identified, said. Needless to say, Rosey and her boyfriend were thrilled.

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