@AmericanAir – “Help! Missed Connection…Future Husband”

by Adam

Dear @AmericanAir: just got off my flight with my future husband, but didn’t catch his full name. Wanna be match maker #flight1037?

That’s the message that Erica Domesek from New York City tweeted to American Airlines after failing to get her “future husband’s” digits.  From Yahoo!, thanks to Mark K.:

What’s a modern-day girl to do when she’s sure she’s just met the guy she’s going to marry, but she didn’t get his digits? Take to Twitter, of course. Erica Domesek was traveling on an American Airlines flight from Dallas to Calgary, Canada, when she hit it off with a handsome stranger in the seat next to her. While the pair exchanged pleasantries, they neglected to trade last names or contact information, so Domesek decided to tweet the airline for a little help.

Dear @AmericanAir: just got off my flight with my future husband, but didn’t catch his full name. Wanna be match maker #flight1037

The airline didn’t bite at first, simply replying, “We hope your paths cross again,” but Domesek didn’t let their unenthusiastic reply stop her from pursuing them for more information.

@AmericanAir what happened 2 romance? I’m just a girl, standin in front of the world,asking an airline to help her (2 quote Nottingham Hill)

American Airlines responded that they would love to help Domesek find her “Happily Ever After.” Unfortunately, the airline is unable to give out passenger information (take comfort in knowing AA prioritizes privacy over love). They then asked Domesek to throw out some ideas of her own to track him down so she suggested the following: “Well @AmericanAir, what if u contact him? He’s a lovely man & would be excited to hear about my grand gesture you’re helping with #romance” While this proposal seemed practical, it was still a no-go. American Airlines instead offered another option:

@psimadethis We’re unable to do that either. You could profess your #romance here in hopes he or a friend tweets us. We won’t mind.

I hope I’m not the only one that finds this a tad desperate and kind of creepy. Good for AA for not giving in and providing alternatives. I’m not so sure airline twitter feeds should become the frequent travelers’ version of Craiglist’s “Missed Connections”.

Yeah really. If I were that guy, no way would I answer the desperate call. If she were so sure he is her future husband, why didn’t he offer his contact info or ask for hers himself? You can’t f–k with fate.
