A flight attendant got the shock of her life when her pilot boyfriend made a special announcement just before takeoff on a flight from Detroit, Michigan, to Oklahoma City on December 23. SkyWest pilot Jon Emerson was making flight plan announcements and introduced his girlfriend, fellow flight attendant Lauren Gibbs. Emerson told passengers it was his and Gibbs’ anniversary. “She doesn’t know this yet, but it’s going to be even more of a special day,” the pilot announced. He then took a ring out of his pocket and got down on one knee, as passengers broke out in applause. And yes, Gibbs happily accepted. Gibbs said it was “hands down the best moment of my life.” As of writing, the video had more than 120,000 views on Facebook. Credit: Facebook/Lauren Gibbs via Storyful
