Watch: The romantic surprise proposal aboard an Emirates flight

Love was literally in the air as the man proposed to his cabin crew girlfriend aboard an Emirates flight from Dubai to Rome

Love was well and truly in the air on-board a recent Emirates flight from Dubai to Rome, thanks to a grand in-flight proposal.

Passenger Stefano, with the help of his fellow travellers, secretly decorated the economy-class cabin with roses and hearts, to surprise his air hostess girlfriend Vittoria.

The entire proposal was captured on video, which has since gone viral after it was posted online by Emirates.

Vittoria is seen opening the curtains and covering her mouth in shock, before being handed a rose and spotting passengers wearing cut-out masks of Stefano’s face.

Stefano was waiting for Vittoria in the cabin crew area, where he got down on one knee and presented Vittoria with a diamond ring.
