An American Airlines flight landed with an extra passenger. 

On Wednesday, Nereida Araujo gave birth to a healthy baby girl on the jetway of Flight 868, after the plane landed in Charlotte, North Carolina from Tampa, Florida during one of the busiest travel weeks of the year. 

The uncommon birthplace inspired the newborn's fitting moniker: Lizyana Sky Taylor.
