Woman Finds Inspiring Love Story Written on the Back of an Airplane Barf Bag
This high-stakes tale will make your stomach turn—in a good way.
If there’s one thing the Internet loves, it’s an airplane romance.
The latest installment in the world of high-flying love stories comes courtesy of a woman who discovered something interesting while cleaning an airplane.
Reddit user ho_riene recently shared a photo of an airsickness bag she found in a seatback pocket about a year ago. Now, this isn’t just any barf bag. This one is scrawled with a love letter written by a woman named Andrea who is on her way to confess her feelings to her crush.
Andrea’s letter, written on a flight from Miami to D.C., has all the elements of a classic romance. Drama (a 4 a.m. ticket purchase); suspense (would he feel the same way?); and conflict (she’s about to study abroad in Australia for five months).
“If you’re reading this, hello :) My name is Andrea and I am incredibly bored,” the note begins. “Right now this flight is going from Miami to DC. I’m 21.”
“So I bought the ticket last night at 4 am because I have a huge crush on my best friend. He’s flying from Boston to New Orleans and has a layover in DC. I actually live in DC and was gonna go up soon anyway so I thought why not, I’ll surprise him at the airport during his layover. I’m gonna tell him I have a crush on him.”

Not surprisingly, the Reddit post went viral, with Internet sleuths lining up to uncover Andrea’s identity. Everyone has the same question: “how did her proclamation of love go?”
Unfortunately, Andrea has yet to come forward. But that hasn’t kept her from inspiring thousands, regardless of the outcome of her bold move.
“I don’t really know what I’m gonna say but I’m just gonna wing it,” she confesses to the barf bag. “Why not I mean I’m leaving so who cares. I dunno man wish me luck whoever you are.”
Her note ends with a request of the reader.
“Do me a favor and do something crazy today like I am. Good luck whoever you are.”
Now if that doesn’t inspire you to go out and tell someone how you feel, we don’t know what will!
