New York: A man who had earlier made headlines for offering a free around-the-world air ticket to a woman with the same name as his former girlfriend has finally found his match.
Jordan Axani and his then-girlfriend Elizabeth Gallagher had booked heavily discounted around-the- world air tickets in May, but their relationship ended and he didn't want her ticket to go to waste, the New York Post reported.
The ticket had a strict no-transfer policy, but since passport information was not required when booking, any Canadian named Elizabeth Gallagher would have been able to use it.
The 28-year-old posted his offer last month on the popular Reddit social media website and received thousands of emails, including 18 from actual Elizabeth Gallaghers with Canadian passports and then chose Elizabeth Quinn Gallagher, a 23-year-old student and part-time office administrator from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia.
The trip is scheduled to start Dec. 21 in New York City and continue on to Milan, Prague, Paris, Bangkok and New Delhi before ending in Toronto on Jan. 12.
Axani said that after the breakup, he deferred all other planning for the trip, such as making hotel reservations, but since the story became public, Marriott International offered to put him and the new Elizabeth Gallagher up, in separate rooms, during their trip
