Passenger fakes engagement proposal during flight to get free bottomless champagne and even makes crew cry – but causes debate | The Sun

A MAN has divided opinions online after he proposed on a flight, only for the engagement to be fake.

TikTok user Roman Romero shared his proposal with his 42,000 followers.

While the video seemed somewhat genuine, his caption read: "One time I faked a proposal to a friend of mine on a long plane ride to get bottomless champagne for free."

The video started with a shot of a flight attendant serving two glasses of champagne on a tray decorated with a single red rose to a female passenger.

As the female passenger giggled, several flight attendants loitered in the aisle near her seat.

The camera then panned to Roman who said: "Two and a half years ago, Aliza and I met on an airplane flying to New York City.
