Man proposes to girlfriend MID-AIR on Delta flight

Boyfriend hands out notes asking his fellow plane passengers to help him propose MID-AIR on Delta flight by taking photos of the happy moment

  • Unknown man proposed to his girlfriend mid-air on a Delta Airlines flight
  • ‘Andrew’ handed out a note to fellow passengers before boarding
  • Reddit user posted live updates of the proposal as it happened 

A romantic mid-air proposal has won the hearts of the internet after an unknown man launched an elaborate scheme to propose to his girlfriend on a Delta Airways flight in the U.S.

The man, named only as Andrew, handed out cards to fellow passengers ahead of the flight, asking them to document the happy occasion. 

A photo of his note was posted on reddit, where hundreds became invested in Andrew’s mission.

The note reads:  ‘Hi, my name is Andrew and I’ll be proposing to my girlfriend Rachel on this flight! I’ve got the ring, I’ve got the “speech”. What I don’t have is a photographer, so I have a favor to ask…

‘Please take photos and videos of the proposal, if you’re so inclined, and send them to the number below.’

Reddit-user ‘pezmonkey’ posted the picture – obscuring Andrew’s phone number’ and kept others updated on the impending proposal. 

‘Spotted the couple.’ ‘pezmonkey’ posted.

‘We’re in 1st, I’m on the aisle three rows back, perfect vantage point. Passengers filing in now. Assume he’ll pop the question just before taxi.’ 

The user then added: ‘We’re taking off and he didn’t do it. Is it gonna happen in the air, or did he chicken out??? We’re all confused.

‘This flight is an hour and half. The soon to be bride just ordered a Jack & Coke at 7:11am.’

They then posted a picture of ‘Andrew’ getting ready to propose and seemingly being allowed to use the PA-system to do so.

It appears that ‘Rachel’ accepted, as ‘pezmonkey’ posted a photo of the couple hugging, captioned ‘SHE SAID YES…’.

It is not known where the proposal took place, but it has been reported as a Delta Airlines flight on a Boeing 717.

MailOnline has contacted Delta Airlines for comment.
