A luckless passenger found herself next to a man who had booked a seat for his doll only to board another flight and be sat by them again.

Sara Novic, from Brooklyn, documented her bizarre ordeal on Twitter on a flight to Cincinnati yesterday.


The mystery man and his doll Barbara were visiting a giant Noah's ark replica built to spec, and the creation museum, and the man had booked the extra seat under the figure's name.

Yesterday, she boarded her first plane and made the strange discovery.

She announced: "Good news - no person in the middle seat next to me.

"Bad news - terrifying baby doll that belongs to the man in the window seat next to me."

After discovering the man had bought the doll a ticket, writer Ms Novic said the flight attendant told the man not to book under Barbara's name next time they fly together.

The stewardesses told the man the security team at the airport was frantically trying to match the name on the boarding pass to the birth date given.

It wasn't until they realised Barbara was a doll that the panic ceased.

It is understood the ticket was bought under the doll's name using fake passport details, and went unchallenged until airline staff noticed either noticed the doll or that there was somebody missing.


Minutes later, Ms Novic ranted: "IT'S NOT A REAL PERSON," before updating her followers with more details of the curious couple.

She tweeted: "Some updates.

"The man is also traveling with an entire bunch of bananas as a snack.

"He is going to Cincinnati to see the giant Noah's ark replica built to spec, and the creation museum.

"As a matter of course."

She share the first picture of the doll and got off the plane.

After a two-hour layover, she got onto another jet, and to her dismay was sat next to them again.

But, instead of getting bogged down, Ms Novic decided to look on the bright side of the situation, and posted a second picture saying: "I'm on her right side this time.


"In case you need a better view."

But her positivity didn't last long.

"On the bright side, Barbara was a very well-behaved baby.

"Just kidding - this has been terrible.

"In closing, whatever the function of this doll, not judging.

"That she had an evil face and her own ticket I stand by as strange."
