THEY’VE walked down the aisle so many times they’ve lost count, but as airline cabin crew they’re usually pushing a trolley.
But on a LATAM service in Chile this week, Paula Ruiz and Carlos Elorriga were married mid-flight – by the Pope himself.
The airborne nuptials were performed after the couple asked the pontiff for a blessing as he flew a leg of his current Chilean tour.
Though the pair had legally married in a civil service in 2010, plans for a religious service were thwarted when an earthquake destroyed their parish church in Santiago.
On hearing their story, the Pope offered to go one step further than a blessing, and conducted a brief wedding ceremony from his seat.
