– A woman has found love at first sight on an aeroplane en route Egypt
– Mafalda Feliciano boarded another plane to Egypt because her original flight was discovered to have been overbooked
– One thing led to another in the course of the journey that united her to her would-be heartthrob
Love can find you anywhere and it found a lady identified as Mafalda Feliciano on an aeroplane.
Recounting an amazing love story that started 16 years ago on an Egypt-bound flight, the young lady said she had no plans of meeting her lover on an aeroplane let one engage passengers aboard in conversation.
She would rather sit quietly throughout the course of the flight but fate thought otherwise.
According to CNN, the medical physicist from Brazil was going for a vacation with her sister and brother-in-law but her original flight being overbooked meant that she had to travel alone on the rerouted flight.
She found herself between two strangers and was determined to stick to her ‘not talking to any stranger aboard’ plan but got bored two hours into the journey.
Tired of taking naps she had reached for the remote to turn on the in-flight entertainment so as to do away with boredom.
The remote was built in a way that it is on the armrest. The lady – who was 37 years old as of the time it happened – unknowingly switched off the screen of her window seat neighbour who would later turn out to be her husband.
Feliciano said: “He was like, ‘Excuse me, but I was watching a movie and you just stopped my movie.”
Embarrassed, she apologized saying “Oh, I’m sorry, sir.”
Indian-born Londoner Sameer Sah, her window seat neighbour, was amused and taken aback by the formality at which she apologized.
Sah was travelling to Cairo for work-related purposes. He worked with an international charity. After that spontaneous exchange, they spent the rest of the flight engaged in deep conversation.
Interestingly, the lady who was recently divorced had met her first husband on a flight to Brazil too.
Sah, 38 years then, was blown away by her pretty looks.
Their coincidental plane meeting was followed up with dinner dates, sightseeing and late-night chats; two years on they tied the knot and have been living happily ever since.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported the incredible love story of a couple who met on Facebook.
Their love story has inspired many single people who hope that cupid shoots in their direction and that they find their soul mate by chance.
From Facebook to the altar, the lovers recently tied the knot in Enugu and judging by the photos, it was obvious that the ceremony was completely beautiful.
