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.
