A woman is searching for a bloke she sat next to on a TUI flight as she believes they had a "connection".
Jane Annakin, 53, flew from Lanzarote to Manchester Airport on Sunday, October 9, and sat next to a stranger.
But, she spent the entire flight chatting with him – and now regrets not asking to stay in touch.

She explained that she had actually booked a different seat on the plane originally. However, the night before her 12.30pm flight she changed it. The Castleford local now thinks she "changed it for a reason".
Speaking tothe ECHO ,Jane said: "We were on a row of four seats and I was sitting on the end and he, his mum and I think his stepdad came. I just said to him 'look if you don't want to talk during the flight, that is fine', because I can literally talk the hind leg of a donkey.
"I said 'I will read my book' and he said 'no, no, I like talking'. We literally spoke for the duration of the flight which was like four hours or so.
"He just opened up and told me so many things that you wouldn't tell a stranger. We just got on so well and it was so refreshing to have a conversation like that and click with someone like that."
When they left the plane, Jane said the man offered to help her with her luggage but she "dashed off".
Now, she wishes she’d lingered to exchange phone numbers.
She added: "It was one of those moments where he said 'it was lovely to talk to you, I have really enjoyed talking to you' and then I kind of dashed off. It was one of those moments where I thought why did I dash off?
"Why did I not just say 'do you want to exchange numbers'? He might not want to. I am sure he is single but he might not be, I am nearly 100% certain he is. He might not want to meet up or anything and that is fine.
"I just thought, I can't lose anything by doing it. I can only gain from this.."
To hunt down her mystery man, Jane shared some details of her journey.
She was sat in seat 17F and the man was in 17E on flight number TOM2755. Jane believes his name was Paul, but admits she is "hopeless with names”.
The “hopeless romantic” also thinks he was from Wigan and is in his 40s. She explained that she understands if he doesn’t want to get in contact, but she wanted to try.
