Your co-passenger on the flight can make or break your journey. Some people want to watch a movie in peace, some want to sleep and some just want to chat. It's very rare that the stars align to give a co-passenger that makes your journey better, whether it be about having a chat or just sitting quietly in peace. Kati couldn't have had a better co-passenger than a 6-year-old girl who made her day. Kati, who goes by @KatiHartwig on Twitter, shared the illuminating conversation the pair had and the jokes the sassy 6-year-old served up during the trip.

Kati had seen the little girl settle down next to her but she knew the ride was going to be a memorable one right from the word go. “I’m going to talk to you randomly, so you need to be prepared, ok?” said the 6-year-old. Prepared? Kati certainly was not. Kati Hartwig, who is a digital media specialist for Columbus Regional Airport, documented the conversation on Twitter where it has since gone viral. The thread has already garnered more than 400K likes. When some speculated that she had made up the whole conversation, Kati told Bored Panda, "Honestly, I’m flattered they think I could make up something that funny! But I really do believe that as we grow up, we are jaded, and that causes a lot of doubts, even when things are fun.”

Many shared their own personal stories about meeting kids on the plane. Even SouthWest airlines waded into the story.
