Epic manhunt ensues

Epic manhunt ensues

In the span of 11 tweets, Erica Domesek of P.S. — I Made This fame (1) proved that meeting/hitting it off with handsome strangers on flights does not only happen in Zoey Dean novels; (2) sort of persuaded American Airlines to help her track her future husband down; (3) enlisted a significant chunk of the Twitterverse to act as the homeless network to her Sherlock Holmes; and (4) made us laugh-cry at modern love. You go, girl.

Here’s how it unfolded:

Coming back from “Spring Break for 30+ year olds” in Miami, Domesek stumbles upon her Prince Charming:

AA gives a pleasant, noncommittal answer, but Domesek won’t take well wishes for an answer:

The airline budges a little:

But AA’s getting into it — the romance, the unbelievably positive PR — and keeps the conversation going:

And … the trail goes cold. Will she ever #FindClauco and DIY jewelry and whatnot with him as long as they both shall live? We and approximately 52,300 others can only hope.

P.S. There’s an app for airplane romances. Always be prepared, right?
