-- Brandy Hollenbeck was serving coffee at 34,000 feet when her boyfriend began speaking.
The Alaska Airlines flight attendant was working on a flight from Seattle to Juneau, Alaska -- and she had no idea what her boyfriend Eric Greener had planned.
According to the airline, Greener hid in the flight deck jump seat, before making his mid-air engagement announcement. The flight’s other attendants were in on the secret. Greener began by discussing his mother’s conversation about a “wonderful” flight attendant. Greener said he later saw Hollenbeck eating a cheeseburger.
“And all I could think, folks, was, 'My gosh -- a flight attendant that’s got the courage to eat a cheeseburger in the terminal is a woman to know,'” he said over the plane’s public address system, as passengers watched and listened.
Hollenbeck eventually figured out what was happening, and Greener emerged. The couple kissed, she said yes, and he slipped a ring on her finger -- a romantic, happy moment at 34,000 feet.
