British Airways - Olympic marriage proposals
UAE, 15 Aug 2012: Park Live saw a number of engagement proposals during the London 2012 Olympic Games. Park Live is the parkland area in the Olympic Park where visitors could watch live action on giant LED screens and see athletes interviewed on the stage.
British Airways Lawn Hosts managing the area noticed the romantic hotspot when they heard loud cheers from the hill. An estimated 25 proposals took place, with an average of at least two a day. The area, located at the top of hill just under the Olympic rings, attracted a daily crowd of fans queuing to have their photo under the symbolic rings.
British Airways site manager Adam Juniper said: "Park Live has been a major destination and we saw tens of thousands of fans coming daily to watch the Olympic action on the big screens. We always knew it would be a hit for supporters - but we never thought it would become a romantic haven too!
"The peak time for proposals was around 7.30 and 8.30pm when the sun set in the background, offering beautiful light and views across the Olympic Park.”
During the Olympics British Airways Lawn hosts looked after some 10,000 guests every day at Park Live.
