VIDEO: Sky-high proposal on board Delta flight

She said "yes!"

Usually when a couple causes a stir on board a flight, it has something to do with the mile-high club. Tis’ not the case with one video that has been making the rounds online today. A man wanted to propose to his girlfriend at the very place where they had met in 2010– on board a Delta flight.

We see the man, who introduces himself as Arvin, hop on the intercom during a flight from Chicago to New York, and give the other passengers some brief background on his relationship with his girlfriend, who quickly goes from being confused to sweetly emotional as she realizes what is happening.

“From the moment that I met her that night, I knew I never wanted to spend a second without her,” Arvin said over the loudspeaker. “Alex, you’re the most beautiful girl in the world, and you make me so incredibly happy. So would you marry me?”

Alex says “yes,” the plane erupts with applause and Arvin rushes back to their seats to give her a ring. Then a flight attendant announces there will be champagne all around, per the happy couple’s wishes. Meanwhile, we’re tearing up at our desks.

MSNBC reports
that Delta surprised the couple over the weekend by offering to pay for their honeymoon. Hey, it’s the least the airline could do, considering this video has probably made Delta the #1 preferred airline among singles everywhere.
