A Chinese flight stewardess took the internet by storm yesterday (October 8) after a letter she wrote seeking a passenger she fell head-over-heels for went viral. That passenger turned out to be none other than professional Chinese go player Lian Xiao.

Lian was aboard Flight CA1702 on September 27, going from Beijing to Hangzhou, where he would partake in the Chinese Go Championship the next day. Little did he know he had unwittingly captured the heart of a flight stewardess with his ‘heartwarming look.’

“This kid was very bashful and when I talked to him, his face would turn red… his name was Lian Xiao, born on April 8, 1994… he was sitting by the window and when the sunlight shone on his face, he looked super, super warm, and that evoked a strong urge in me to fall in love…” wrote the stewardess in the letter. 

According to the stewardess, she wanted to ask the young go maestro for his WeChat. Unfortunately, she found herself tongue-tied and all she got from Lian Xiao was a warm smile before he departed the plane. After that, she took to a variety of social media platforms, including Weibo and Tik Tok, to publish her lovelorn story.

Netizens flooded the comment section under her post, with some expressing envy towards this lucky man. One netizen joked: “I too have napped in a window seat (although my snore was not a little loud) and the sunlight also fell on my face, why wouldn’t she fall for me?” Others, however, claimed that the article was intrusive: “This is all romantic but… is it really appropriate to show someone else’s private information on social media?”
