Abuja - One young Irish lover might have wondered his whole life if he had met and lost the love of his life during a single flight from Barcelona to Dublin.

The 24-year-old Jammie Kelly instantly fell in love with his Canadian dream woman Katie, 27, but was agonisingly separated from her by those pesky customs agents in Dublin.

After hearing Katie also wandered the airport in search of her boy, her savvy friends used the cute hastags #LoveAtFirstFlight and #FindKate to make her plight go viral online, Cosmopolitan reports.

Katie and Jamie were then reunited live on radio and they now plan to meet.
