A long-distance couple who regularly spend hours travelling by plane to see each other made one journey a flight that they will never forget.

Deepum Patel, who works in Atlanta, proposed to his girlfriend Neha Chakravati, who lives in Pennsylvania, at 30,000 feet on a Delta Air Line flight.

The couple were travelling from Atlanta to Boston before continuing on to Iceland to begin a three-week trip of Europe when Deepum popped the question.

The proposal took place with the help of airline staff and fellow passengers, with dental nurse Neha being called for 'medical assistance' while Deepum handed out cards to customers asking them to capture the moment.

Love is in the air

The unforgettable moment went without a glitch, and the happy couple were greeted with flowers and balloons when they touched the ground.
