easyJet Captain and crew assist with on board proposal at 30,000ft
Newly released footage reveals how Matthew Hedges (32) from Marlow, Bucks pops the question to his girlfriend of 2 years, Zosia Katnik (30) mid-way through their easyJet flight from London Luton to Palma, Majorca.
Cabin crew members positioned themselves along the aisle and held up three cards, together reading the question ‘Will. You. Marry Him?’ Getting down on one knee, Matthew then revealed the engagement ring and asked the all-important question.
Needless to say she took no hesitation with a YES answer!
The couple were given a celebratory bottle of champagne on the house, and also enjoyed a visit to the cockpit once their flight had landed. They plan to revisit Majorca next year to plan their wedding and will return again to tie the knot in 2018.
We are both really happy. Zosia always finds the Captain’s voice reassuring to know she is in good hands so I wanted the crew to be part of the proposal. After quite some time in the planning it couldn’t have gone better. And she said YES!
An easyJet spokesman said:
We were excited to be asked to be involved in the couple’s big moment and would like to congratulate them on their on board engagement.
