Man Meets Doppelgänger After Accidentally Sitting In His Seat On Plane (Photo)


When Neil Douglas boarded a Ryanair flight from Stansted, London to Galway, Ireland on Thursday, he found his seat was already taken by himself.

Confused? Don't be. Robert Stirling, Douglas' doppelgänger, mistakenly ended up in his lookalike's seat after boarding.

Rather than send Stirling packing, Douglas snapped a selfie with his newfound twin.

A friend of Douglas' wife shared the photo on Twitter and marveled at the resemblance.

The *bEarDed BeAuTieS* hopped off their flight to discover they booked stays at the same hotel and shared a celebratory beer that night.

In an interview with Daily Mail, Douglas, 32, recalled,

An effort to do a selfless deed landed Stirling, 35, in Douglas' seat.

Stirling explained,

If these guys are smart, they'll keep in touch in the event either is up for some life-trading hijinks à la "The Parent Trap" or (JT deep cut) "Model Behavior."
