Love was 35,000 feet in the air when passenger Stuart Mackinnon proposed to Victoria Loudon on an Emirates flight to Brisbane, Australia.

A video clip was released by the airline showing anxious Mackinnon giving Loudon a bouquet of flowers before kneeling down on one knee to pop the question.

The crew transformed the onboard lounge and sang Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World,” with the help of a Baradene College Concert Band that was luckily on the same flight.

After Loudon said yes, the crew members and passengers cheered the newly-engaged couple.

“It was always going to be a truly special moment in my life but what happened took it to a level I could never have imagined,” said Mackinnon in a statement.

“There could have been no better setting anywhere in the world. The nerves I had were put at ease with the fantastic crew members, the Captain and all the passengers.”
