Travel App's Response to 47-Year Layover Is Hilarious

LONDON — There's a lot of competition for the greatest ever social media brand response out there, but Jen — a member of travel company Skyscanner's Facebook team — may just have taken the top spot.

The thread started last week, after a confusing flight suggestion from Skyscanner (a UK-based travel app that allows people to find cheap flights) led to the following query from a user called James Lloyd.

There are probably loads of great things to do in Bangkok, in fairness, but 413,786 hours (or 47.2 years) does seem like quite a bit of time to fill.

Luckily, Skyscanner came back with a few suggestions.

Within minutes, Jen from Skyscanner was everyone's new Internet hero.

And when she waded into the comments, she became even more famous.

Soon, Jen had her own fanclub.

Over the next few days, Jen kept the responses coming.

The best part? The whole thing had a happy ending.

If Jen hasn't been promoted at least twice in the last week, there's surely something wrong with the world.
