Passengers on the Ho Chi Minh City-Bangkok flight on Valentine Day today were so surprised to join the wedding party of Tang Ai Linh and her partner Pham Thi Thanh Phuong.
The couple, in bride gown and broom suit, put the rings on each other’s fingers as they made the vow to love and live with each other forever. Then they cut the wedding cake and kissed passionately amid the cheers of passengers and the bridesmaids from Vietjet staffs.
Linh and Phuong said they have seen many joyful shows on Vietjet airplanes and they wanted their wedding to be one of those.

They went to meet representatives of Vietjet asking to hold their wedding party on one of its flights and they were so happy to receive more than a yes. The airline sponsored all the wedding cost and also gifted them a honeymoon trip to Thailand, the region’s most gay-friendly country.
Linh and Phuong, who have been together for 13 years, said the celebrity gay wedding of fashion designer Adrian Anh Tuan and businessman Son Doan last month, weeks after Vietnam lifted the ban on same-sex marriage, inspired them to exhibit their love publicly.
