Social media is smitten with a video of an IndiGo pilot’s sweet announcement for a “special passenger” – his wife. The gesture, described as sweet and thoughtful by users, was caught on camera and has garnered over 8 million views.
Captain Alneez Virani suprised his wife Zahra with an in-flight announcement en route Mumbai. Sharing the video on Instagram, Zahra said she had been on many flights piloted by her husband, but “nothing even comes close to this one”.
The video begins with Zahra waving to her husband in the cockpit from outside the aircraft. As she settles in her seat, her husband begins making announcements to the passengers. However, going the extra mile to make his wife’s journey memorable, he says he would like to take the opportunity to make a special announcement.
“Somedays you get a special flight, and today is one such flight… and I have a special passenger with us on this flight… I have the privilege of flying my wife to Mumbai,” Captain Virani is heard saying. “It’s just a small thing for everybody, but (it) means a lot to me. I just wish to share the happiness with all of you on board,” he says.
