I proposed to my fiancée on a Ryanair flight — but was dragged by the airline

A one-way ticket to a social media backfire.

A man who proposed to his now-fiancée while on-board a Ryanair flight was thrilled when she said yes — but wasn’t expecting the budget airline to troll them in response.

Dublin-based Lee Parsons shared a picture of himself and his new fiancée, Leah Louise King, sitting in their seats grinning and holding cups of sparkling wine in their hands, while Leah flashed her new ring.

“Proposed to Leah on a @Ryanair flight with her family there. Luckily she said yes,” Parsons wrote beneath the picture, which he posted to X (previously known as Twitter.)

“Yup, we both love traveling so it made sense to do it like that, seeing as it would be while doing something we love doing,” Parsons, who shares a daughter, Lillie-Grace, with Leah, added in response to a comment.

However, the airline immediately poked fun at the couple’s jovial post — reposting it on X with the comment: “Leah, blink twice for random seat allocation.”

While the internet usually jumps on board with a social media roast from the airline, X users instead turned on Ryanair — pointing out that the notoriously stingy airline is less than accommodating.

“Surprised you haven’t got an engagement fee in place,” one person wrote sarcastically.

“I hope they didn’t charge you extra to carry on the ring??” joked another.

Another user asked if the airline charged them extra, to which the Ryanair account replied: “Proposal fee.”

“No free champagne for the beautiful couple?” another user questioned, with Ryanair jokingly writing: “Are you new here?”

The Post has contacted Ryanair and Parsons for comment.

Ryanair is known for its often-chaotic flights. In July, furious passengers took to social media to whine after a passenger serenaded the entire cabin mid-flight with his version of “Hold Me Now” by Irish musician Johnny Logan.

“I know you are not famous for your in-flight entertainment but this is taking the piss,” furious passenger Pete Farrell posted Monday to Twitter, along with a minute-long clip. “Me and the kids would like our money back please.”
