The man went on his knees, proposing to his partner, and presented her with a heartfelt handwritten message on a chart paper offering her the proposal ring. The video shows the woman who, in no time surprised and overwhelmed by the gesture, walked out of her seat and went to hug him. The hug is being interpreted as a loving gesture hinting at a positive reply to the proposal.
The video that's been doing rounds on social media was shared by Air India capturing the man walking down the aircraft aisle holding a huge pink banner. The banner asked, “I could walk forever and a mile with you. Would you like to walk with me?" As the woman gets out of her seat, he goes down on his knee to propose.
Later Air India posted, “Love is in the air for this lovely couple flying on board our flight on 2nd Jan. She was flying from London to Bombay via Hyderabad. He took a Bombay-Hyderabad-Bombay flight. Don’t miss the surprise and joy as he proposes on bended knee."
Hindustan Times reported that officials said the man was familiar with a crew member and wanted to surprise her. "The airline is our responsibility. My niece approached me saying that a friend wants to propose to his to be fiancée inside the aircraft who was traveling on Air India LHR/HYD/BOM and so the boy also booked the AI flight BOM/HYD/BOM on January 2 without her knowledge," said the Air India official onboard who assisted the couple.
“Nothing was required from Air India but only to allow him to propose," the official added.
