I'm hoping this does not get moved to the report trips forum.
Girlfriend was in GDL for business so I decided to visit her for the weekend,took everything with me, ring, and champagne. On the return trip,an AM MD-87, I change the tickets to C instead of Y . I had bought a bouquet of 18 red roses, which I told the girlfriend were for my mother. Due to last minute cell call to girlfriend I got on the plane first and told the purser my plans. She seemed very happy and even cheery about it. So halfway through the flight, (one hour) I got up, ask for the PA, and made my announcement. Something like, XXXX please accept my engagement ring. I returned to my seat and at the point when she said yes I put the ring on her and that's when the purser brought the flowers and the champagne. Great moment for me and great moment for her as she was crying (of happiness, hopefully) All passengers, both in C and Y clapped and the captain came out to wish us the best and the purser announded the answer on the PA. There was no corny thing as kneeling etc..
I hope you have comments or questions

The passengers reacted pretty cheerfully as far as I could notice. I had with me little letters of apology to those who might be bothered though, but I did not used them.

When we were deplaning, some came over and congratulated us.

Well done!! I nearly did that, too, on a flight from LAX to Hawai`i. I changed my mind (in her favor), and waited until Maui. It worked out for me too!!
Congratulations!!

I remember seeing a similar thing on ITV's "airline" programme once... there must have been a really nice atmosphere on the plane  Smile

I never saw the "airline" situation, either on the American or European versions, but must have been pretty similar. As I said on another e-mail, I wanted to combine my two loves on the same experience. Flying an airliner and her. Seems to have worked. But it took planning and luck

Congrats, man! That's awesome...you're a brave guy to do that on a plane the way you did in front of all those people. Something they'll never forget, I'm sure!

All the best to you and your new wife-to-be!

Not only this was a very special moment for you and your fiancee but I also think that it was a very nice moment for all the PAX.

In these days, not enough happy moments such as this one.

I wish the best from Luxembourg!
