Women marry at 39,000 feet as equality comes to New Zealand

AiG and AP reports

Love was in the air as Lynley Bendall and Ally Wanikau walked down the aisle of an airplane to exchange vows.

The couple celebrated the legalization of same-sex marriage in New Zealand on Monday by getting hitched in a plane. The seatbelt-fasten signs were off.

Along for the ride was Jesse Tyler Ferguson, star of the ABC sitcom “Modern Family.”

Monday is the first day same-sex couples can marry in New Zealand under a law passed in April. About three dozen same-sex couples planned to marry in towns and cities throughout the country.

Bendall and Wanikau were flying high after winning a promotion by national carrier Air New Zealand.

They have been together 13 years and have three foster children.

New Zealand is the 13th nation to legalize marriage equality.
