This man involved other passengers in his surprise proposal to his girlfriend.


It’s one thing to pull off a surprise proposal on a plane in front of a bunch of strangers, but it’s another to actively involve them in the process. That’s exactly what a passenger named Andrew did when he boarded a flight with his girlfriend, Rachel, according to “Today.”

He handed out notes to every passenger without her knowing, introducing himself and asking if they would help out by taking photos of the proposal. His note disclaimed he had it all, except one thing — a photographer. With their help, he was able to get detailed shots of the moment, albeit on iPhones.

The two kids were playing around at the gate while waiting to return home from a trip to Disney World when they began engaging with an employee on the tarmac, who at first started mimicking their movements and eventually began dancing while working.
