Love is in the air. Quite literally as a woman named Jomaica Alfiler, is trying really hard to find out the lovely person she sat next to in a 10 hour flight hoping that he might be the one. She also fears that she may have ‘missed her chance’ at love.
Alfiler, a Seattle based business student from Philippines, was travelling from Frankfurt to Seattle where she shared a 10 hour flight with a mystery gentleman who had apparently made her journey, well, lovely. The 21 year old sat on 43A and the man was sitting next to her on 43B (middle). When she arrived at her seat, they exchanged a pleasant smile. Then he helped her with her luggage and also offered her a blanket.
Unfortunately, they didn’t talk much and she couldn’t get her contact details or even his full name. Alfiler also contacted the flight operator Lufthansa, hoping that they might be able to help her, but due to Data protection policy, they couldn’t help her.
So now she has turned to social media for help to find the mysterious stranger. She posted her conversation with the Lufthansa airline on her Facebook. She wrote, “He was so kind to me and he helped me with my luggage. He kept ordering gin and tonic about 6 times during the flight. We were sitting next to each other for the whole 10 hours flight. However, I didn’t get his full name and contact. This is why I am reaching out to you because I haven’t stopped thinking about him since the plane landed.”
In her interview she said, “I was walking down the aisle and started looking for my seat and there he was sitting and looking”. “I had small luggage with me that I had to put above the compartment before I sat down. He offered to help me out but I insisted on trying to do it myself because I’m a strong independent woman. In the end he helped me anyway because I was too short to even reach it- I’m 5’1.”
Throughout the journey they engaged in a small talk and he even offered her his blanket when he wasn’t using it. In addition to this, she didn’t use the headphones and turned on the subtitles hoping that he would talk to her, but to no avail. She described her appearance as a good looking young man with a clear cut and dark hair and was probably 5’9.
After her exchange with the airline, she posted the conversation on Facebook. Since then, her story has been reaching the whole world. Well, we hope she finds her mystery man.
