A man proposed to his girlfriend on an Aer Lingus flight, and she had a very Irish reaction
“I’m gonna kill ya.”

LAST SATURDAY, A humble Aer Lingus jet became a den of romance. Really.

On a flight from Cork to Lanzarote, a man went up to the PA and began waxing lyrical about a lovely woman named Caroline.

I met Caroline when we moved in next door, so we were neighbours, and we have been very good friends ever since… She bought this trip for me because she thinks I deserve it, but I think she deserves it a lot more.

He then called Caroline up to the front of the plane, and popped the big question:


Thankfully, she says yes. But not without one final threat:

gonna kill ya

Shouts to the cabin crew, who were on hand to provide the romantic cues.

give her a kiss

The man said he had been planning the surprise for four weeks, and seems to be delighted with how it went down.

Aw. Ain’t love grand?
