An off-duty Alaska Airlines pilot had a romantic surprise planned for a recent trip. But it didn’t go quite as planned. (There’s still a happy ending, don’t worry.)
Alaska Airlines Inflight Proposal
Alaska Airlines pilot Alejandra Moncayo and her girlfriend, Veronica Rojas, flew as passengers Wednesday from San Francisco (SFO) to Los Angeles (LAX) on a special “Pride delight flight.” Ms. Rojas is a Skywest flight attendant; ABC 7 writes that the two met in 2020 while on an SFO to LAX hop. So, the route clearly is special to the couple.
Ms. Moncayo had something up her sleeve that day: she planned a surprise proposal at their LAX gate.
But Ms. Rojas also wanted to propose that day!
Alaska Airlines’ Maria Cid said, “Recently, (Ms. Rojas) shared her idea for a mid-air marriage proposal with the team and how the couple has always wanted to fly on our ‘Fly With Pride’ plane—of course, we were onboard and going to make this happen!”
So, one of the cabin crew offered to let passengers come up to the front of the cabin and talk about how they met their significant others.
Wouldn’t you know it? Ms. Rojas wanted to bring Ms. Moncayo up in front of everyone so they could tell their love story.
And that’s when Ms. Rojas dropped to a knee, pulled an engagement ring out of her dress (yes), and proposed. (Ms. Moncayo said yes.)
But Ms. Moncayo wasn’t about to let her new fiancee have all the proposal fun.
Once they got to the gate, she proposed to Ms. Rojas. (Why not? Speaking from experience: you spend days, weeks, or months building up excitement and practicing to propose. You gotta go through with it!)
Ms. Moncayo’s proposal was a complete surprise to everyone. Not even Alaska was aware it would take place. The airline said, “a double proposal celebration at LAX ensued!”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
