The story of a plane passenger who switched seats to accommodate a couple who wanted to sit together and possibly ended up falling in love with ex-USMNT player Stu Holden's brother keeps getting better.

Blair commented the pair were both personal trainers, were showing each other pictures of family, and even went to the bathroom at the same time at one point.

Blair wanted to change seats on the flight to sit next to her boyfriend and joked that the couple now sitting in front of them would fall in love. 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".

For the rest of the flight, Rosey Blair live tweeted the budding romance, sending Twitter into a frenzy.

The thread on Twitter has since gained more than 300,000 retweets and more than 800,000 likes.

"It felt like, honestly, being in a movie, and we were the two best friends", Blair told "Good Morning America" of her and her boyfriend's role. It seems social media has identified her, though most of her accounts have since been deleted.

"What if the love of her life pops in or something like that?"

The man's identity has since been revealed, a former professional soccer player named Euan Holden.

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

"She's very attractive, fun, bubbly, natural", Holden added.

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