A woman has proposed to her partner on board Dubai-based airline Emirates while on a flight from Manchester to Dubai on Friday.

Rachel popped the question to Daniel on the A380 on-board lounge following a musical performance by the Emirates cabin crew. He said, ‘yes’ as air hostesses showered the pair with rose petals.

Emirates shared the video on its social media accounts, where it garnered over 160,000 views on Instagram alone.

In-flight proposals have been trending in the past couple of years, with a Royal Jordanian pilot recently getting down on one knee to pop the question to his partner on board a flight.
