Arthitaya said “I was assigned to serve on the flight as usual. Even though it was for the ‘True Love-True Merit’ campaign, which was for the two lucky couples from the Facebook competition, I didn’t think there would be any surprises. After I disembarked from the plane, I stopped to take photos with the lucky winners. I saw my boyfriend dressed up in a suit, approaching us on an AirAsia baggage trolley. He walked up to me and kneeled down before asking me to marry him! As he put the ring on my finger I couldn’t help feeling so excited and shy as this was taking place in front of all my friends and passengers”.

“I am very happy that he has chosen me to be his partner in life and I know we will cherish one another forever” Arthitaya remarked in closing.
