The website posted updates on the 'love flight' to its Twitter account, which drew the attention of users from around the world. Some suggested two Air Malta employees were getting married on the flight, leading to the romantic heart-shaped path, while some thought it was just a publicity stunt by the airline.

Air Malta later confirmed to the U.K.'s Sky News that a pilot and flight attendant had been married at the airport earlier in the day and were enjoying a post-nuptial flight.

"I think it was a very romantic flight. They flew close to Sicily, so they could see Mount Etna through the window," the spokesperson told Sky News.
