Budget airline plans mid-flight weddings

A stag weekend will regularly centre on cheap flights to Europe's top party destinations, but rarely do budget airlines feature prominently in a couple's wedding plans.

However, that could all be about to change courtesy of cut-price air carrier easyJet, which has applied for the right to let couples tie the knot midway through flights.

Regional manager at easyJet Paul Simmons confirmed that the airline has written to officials at Luton borough council requesting permission for pilots to officiate the in-flight ceremonies.

"If our request is replied positively, then so-called 'floating on cloud nine' would get a new meaning for people in love," he said.

With couples becoming increasingly creative when planning their nuptials, the idea could prove successful with those seeking an alternative to the traditional big white wedding.

The past month has seen a number of bizarre ceremonies take place, including one in which a loved-up couple stopped halfway through the Flora London Marathon to exchange their vows, before going on to complete the 26.2-mile course in a time of just over seven hours.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19160054-ADNFCR
