FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - Last week, a Dallas man captured the heart of the internet after finding a potential love interest on an Alaska Airlines flight, purely by chance.

As it turns out, this isn't the first time this year that notoriety has found him.

Last week, a woman named Rosie Blair politely asked another woman to switch seats so that Blair could sit next to her boyfriend.

The unidentified woman ended up sitting next to a former professional soccer player named Euan Holden, and the two seemed to hit it off quite well.

The story took the internet by storm and earned Holden a new nickname "Plane Bae."

According to Holden's LinkedIn profile, he's the director of operations at the Varsity Tavern.

That's the Fort Worth bar that was accused earlier this year of selectively enforcing it's dress code to allegedly keep minorities out.

The city's Human Relations Commission is currently investigating those allegations.

KRLD has reached out to Holden several times for comment by way of phone, email and social media. So far, he has not responded.
