Two same-sex couples were wed aboard a Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) over Swedish airspace as part of a competition by the airline, the Copenhagen Post reports:
"During the flight from Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport to Newark Airport German gay couple, Aleksander Mijatovic and Shantu Bhattacharjee and Polish lesbians, Ewa Tomaszewicz and Gosia Rawinska, tied the knot. The wedding ceremony itself took place whilst the plane was still in Swedish airspace, and was performed by Christofer Fjellner, a member of the European Parliament. SAS offered the civil partnerships as a prize in a competition won by Mijatovic and Bhattacharjee garnered over 80,000 votes on various social media platforms. The couples will spend three days in New York before flying onto Los Angeles to finish their honeymoons."
