Airplane 'love story' takes off on Twitter with Texas residents

"We couldn't have picked a better romantic duo, they were both athletic and cute, and they struck up a conversation immediately", said Rosie Blair, the Twitter user whose feed had everyone following along - in real time - as she live-tweeted.

"Last night on a flight home, my boyfriend and I asked a woman to switch seats with me so we could sit together". She met Holden, who played at UNM in 2008-09 after transferring from CT, and established a rapport - to say the least - that Blair, with 62,000 Twitter followers, documented with photos taken by her cell phone.

The mystery man, Euan Holden, was alerted to the Twitter thread by a friend and got in touch with Blair on Instagram.

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

. 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".

Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Indian doubles pairs in action
The 36-year-old also collected 35 consecutive points on serve on his way to a 5-1 lead in the third set. Defending champion Roger Federer , who will be soon turning 37, has won Wimbledon eight times before.

As of this writing, Rosey's original twitter story has been liked by 836K people and retweeted 334K times.

Upon landing in Dallas, Blair took a photo of the pair walking closely together at the baggage claim area. She said she and her boyfriend did some social media research and discovered both of the passengers were indeed single and had started to follow one another on Instagram. Holden, a retired professional soccer player, model, and brother to former Houston Dynamo player Stuart Holden, told "GMA" there may still be hope for him and the unnamed woman who sat beside him.

That's when the "love at first flight" began, and the #PlaneBae hashtag was born. Needless to say, Rosey and her boyfriend were thrilled.
