Neil Douglas and Robert Sterling are not brothers and they have never met before, but when they sat next to each other on a Thursday evening flight from London to Galway, Ireland, they couldn’t help but notice they looked exactly like each other.
Douglas, 32, was about to ask Stirling, 35, to move when he saw a man sitting in his assigned seat, he told Daily Mail:
“I asked him to move and when the guy looked up, I thought: “Holy s***, he looks like me. We had a big laugh about it – everyone had a laugh. We took a selfie and that was it.”
Sporting the same dark colored clothing, hairstyle, beard, hair color and even smile, the two snapped a hilarious selfie and chatted for just over an hour. But that wasn’t the end of their coincidental meeting, Douglas explained:
“I later checked into my hotel in Galway to find my doppelganger checking into the same hotel ahead of me …We ended up socialising and quite a few people pointed out that we looked very similar.”
The two ended up drinking together later that night, Stirling said:
“It turned out that we were staying at the same hotel, and we saw him in a few pubs that night. We ended up socialising and quite a few people pointed out that we looked very similar.”
A spokesman for Ryanair, the airline that the two men flew on, stated:
“It just goes to show, when you fly Ryanair, you pay half the fares but have twice the fun.”
