In front of a cheering throng, a Ryanair flight attendant was proposed to by her boyfriend in Dublin Airport.
In a video that a bystander named Vincent Hughes shared on Twitter, a man is seen hoisting his now-fiancée into the air while she is holding a bunch of pink flowers.
As a musician plays on a nearby piano and the surrounding audience applauds, the joyful couple embraces and kisses one another.
Radio producer and presenter Mr. Hughes, who is based in Dublin, told the PA news agency that the proposal took place while he was waiting for his son to arrive from Spain in Terminal 1 of Dublin Airport.
He said: “I had been listening to a guy playing the piano.
“His friend was holding a big bunch of flowers and was nervously watching the board for flight arrivals.
“Then the airport police came and helped him to move the piano nearer to the arrival door and then the wait was on.
“There was quite an audience when she finally came through the door and there were lots of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ and tears when she said yes. Brilliant.”
He captioned the footage: “There is still romance in Ireland despite all that is going on. Dublin Airport tonight. What a lovely thing to do.”
Dublin Airport tweeted about the proposal, saying: “Love was well and truly in the air in Dublin Airport last night as this Ryanair air hostess was surprised in T1 arrivals by her boyfriend… (much to the excitement of the others waiting!).
“Congratulations to the very happy couple.”
