In Red Eye Wedding Over Canada, Virgin America Beats Scandinavian Air To First Gay In-Flight Ceremony
The San Francisco-NYC red eye flight this morning took a detour over Canadian airspace so two dudes could get married as part of its contest. Many of the passengers were still asleep during the event and awoke to news from the cockpit.
Meanwhile, the airborne nuptials trump planned ceremonies aboard SAS Scandinavian Airlines, which is shooting for winners of its “Love Is In The Air” contest to get married on two flights (one Stockholm-NYC, another NYC-Stockholm) on Dec. 6.
Maybe that’ll be the first transcontinental gay wedding?
