Man Recruits Airplane Passengers for an Epic Mid-Flight Proposal

By Anna Quintana

There's a lot of pressure to pull off the perfect proposal. From dancing flash mobs to a live piece orchestra and a "marry me" message on a jumbotron à la Kanye West to Kim Kardashian, popping the question in the most creative way has become a mission to not only get a "yes," but also go viral. 

And that is exactly what one man was hoping to achieve when he decided to propose onboard an airplane — and asked unsuspecting passengers to help capture the romantic moment. 

Luckily for all of us, one of the passengers documented the proposal from the beginning to its happy ending on reddit in real time. It all started when @pezmonkey was handed a note from a stranger before boarding his early morning flight. "At airport, just handed this...challenge accepted...good luck buddy. Standby for results...takeoff in 40," he wrote, along with a photo of the small card he was given.
