It’s not your typical love story, but a story we believe you will find heartwarming. Men and women find love in different places but these two women certainly weren’t expecting to find it on their long haul flight from Canada.
Donya, an airline employee shared and documented the love story between the two women who were seated next to each other. After being approached by a 70-year-old woman at her counter, she shared the story on Twitter:
omg… the cutest thing just happened at work it's like a fic. i'm gonna do a thread, spoiler it's a love story— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
for those who don't know: i work at the ticket counter for an airline.— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
this older lady (i'm guessing 70) comes to the counter and says she needs some help/has a question and is wondering if i could help. i tell her to go ahead
she explains that she's supposed to meet someone coming in on a specific flight (she tells me the flight number) from spain, but the plane laded and hour ago and they didn't show up. she wants to know if that person was on the plane— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
problem is, i'm not allowed to give out that kind of information and i tell her so. she just nods and says that she understands but looks really sad, so i ask her what happened— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
The woman was worried and desperately looking for the woman she was seated next to on her flight but the request was totally against the airline’s rules, so Donya was unable to release that information to her. The woman became upset, explaining that she had fallen in love with the woman next to her on a plane.
turns out she met another woman on the plane. they flew in from canada on the same plane and sat next to each other but had different connecting flights in spain. the old lady tells me she fell in love with that woman during those 11something hours and they promised to meet here— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
now my gay heart is moved but i'm still not allowed to give her information about passengers. i advice her to maybe have her called outy or if she has her phone number, she can use our phone and call her— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
The two women had been separated during their connecting flights to Spain and the couple was to meet at the airport where Donya works. She was moved by the woman’s story and asked her to leave her phone number with her so that she could call if the other woman approached the ticket desk.
she says she has already tried calling her but she can't reach her. she's ready to give up and she looks really sad, and i'm just as sad as her, but she leaves. i kind of can't stop thinking about it. but the story isn't over here— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
one hour later, so just a few minutes ago, another old lady comes to the counter. she is not with me but with my coworker, and i'm in the back and eating. i hear how she says that she needs some help. she's waiting for someone to arrive from spain.— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
me, in the back: pic.twitter.com/B5eLH9YbpN
i basically drop my sandwich and go out front to the counter. outside is another older lady, also around 70. i ask her, have you by any chance just arrived from spain? she said yes. i try not to lose it and hastily look through the papers at my computer— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
you see, just before the first lady left, i told her she could leave her number with me, just in case. thank GOD she did. i call her and when she picks up i say "hi X, there's someone here at the counter looking for you."— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
she sounds out of this world excited on the phone and i hand it over so they can talk to each other and the lady at the counter says "hurry, dear, i miss you" when i tell you i almost started SOBBING— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
only 10 minutes later, the lady from before is hurrying back to the counter. luckily she hadn't left the airport. the two of them run towards each other and hug 🥺🥺🥺 it's like a MOVIE i swear— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
About an hour later the other woman came to the ticket desk and Donya realized who she was. The pair were then reunited and the ecstatic lovebirds were totally grateful for Donya’s help.
they thanked me about a thousand times for helping them unite and i'm honestly just happy this got a happy ending. they leave eventually, holding hands 😭😭😭— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
they came back together, another 5 minutes later, with this as a gift for me (it's a chocolate bunny) and honestly, i am still so 🥺🥺🥺🥺 over this whole story pic.twitter.com/KARNeTKIX8— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
i wish this didn't have so many typos but i was quickly tweeting at work because i just had to share asap 🙁 i didn't expect for it to spread that much… i'm just happy i could witness such beautiful and wholesome moment, as a member of the lgbtq+ community myself— don(15) (@vvuxian) April 19, 2019
