Over the past few decades, commercial air travel has diminished from a glamorous comfort to a grueling process that tests the patience of even the Earth’s kindness inhabitants.

But there is a silver lining to every cloud a plane soars past, something Lauren Kelly witnessed first hand on Tuesday. The entertainer manager’s Kentucky-bound American Airlines flight started with an unexpected treat: being upgraded to first class.

This cushy new spot placed Kelly right behind an adorable older couple she couldn’t help but notice. Kelly was so touched with the man’s displays of affection for his female traveling companion, that she stared live tweeting the pair’s interactions.

Good thing Kelly was so quick to sign on, because she ended up capturing a very special moment. Throughout the flight the older man’s sweet nothings turned into champagne and strawberries, and finally an in-flight proposal over the plane’s intercom.

See how the entire romantic encounter went down, miles up in air, by following Kelly’s tweets below. //storify.com/peoplemag/american-airlines-proposal-live-tweet.js?header=none&border=false
