Passengers aboard JetBlue Flight 1437 Wednesday enjoyed very unique in-flight entertainment: two of their fellow passengers got engaged!
Groom-to-be Adam created a video explaining his and his girlfriend Taryn's love story and asking her to marry him, JetBlue's BlueTales blog reported Wednesday. Then, with JetBlue's help, he played the video on all the seat-back TVs about 30 minutes into their flight from San Francisco to Long Beach on Wednesday (the couple is from the Bay Area and was flying to Long Beach to celebrate Adam's birthday).
After Taryn said "yes," the entire plane broke out into applause and the flight attendants passed out cake pops to celebrate.
When Adam and Taryn arrived at Long Beach Airport, they were greeted with cake, champagne and cheers from dozens of JetBlue employees.
Another lovestruck flier used the airplane's loudspeaker to play his girlfriend's favorite song and then popped the question in 2012. In 2009, a man surprised his girlfriend by boarding her plane and proposing, after the other passengers had exited the plane.
