Long-haul travel can be exhausting, especially when you’re faced with a long layover.

Stop in Amsterdam or Los Angeles and your connection will probably be pretty exciting, but end up in the middle of nowhere and you may have a hard time trying to find twelve hours worth of activities.

Bangkok, however, has lots to offer as a stopover destination – just maybe not for 47 years.

James Lloyd discovered the confusing connection while browsing on Skyscanner last week, and it led to the following query:

Hi Skyscanner. Just wondering what you’d recommend I do during the 47 year layover your website has suggested?

Luckily, Skyscanner came back with a few suggestions:

Now, there’s a lot of competition out there for the greatest social media brand response ever, but Jen may have just won.

And she didn’t stop there:

And within minutes, Jen from Skyscanner was everyone’s new Internet hero:


The more she waded into the comments, the more clear it became that Jen has definitely won the Internet:


And it all ended pretty great for the guy who reported the 47-year connection in the first place:


If Jen hasn’t been promoted yet, she damn well should be!
