American Airlines Employee Passes as Severus Snape
NEW YORK, June 8 (UPI) — American Airlines resurrected one of the Harry Potter series’ most memorable characters — Severus Snape — on Facebook Friday.
In a photo posted on American Airlines’ official page, David Dolci, the potion master’s lookalike, waves a wand at a young woman in Hogwarts robes.
“Severus Snape will assist you in the boarding process for Flight Nine and Three Quarters from LaGuardia to Hogwarts,” the caption reads. “We’ll be boarding by Sorting House and are expecting a full flight today.”
The airline posted the photo in indirect response to years of Internet attention toward the brooding professor’s real-life doppelganger, who was reportedly discovered in 2012.
