1 in 50 Will Find Love at 10,000 Feet
British bank HSBC has done a new study which suggests that 1 in 50 airline passengers meet their one true love aboard a plane.
The study surveyed over two thousand people from almost one hundred and forty-one countries. Six thousand other travelers from places like Hong Kong, the US, the UK and UAE were quizzed about their travel tendencies.
The HSBC study revealed that over fifty percent of passengers will engage in a conversation with a stranger on a plane—so it isn’t surprising the same study suggests that 1 in 7 fliers will find a long-term friend while on board an aircraft. Sixteen percent may find a new business connection.
Here are some other unusual things the study found: 48% freaked out if another passenger removed their shoes; 65% are upset if someone is rude to an attendant; 46% listed others drinking too much as an annoyance while flying.
37% will get angry at anyone who takes up too much over head space. 32% can’t stand arm rest thieves. Falling asleep against a stranger’s shoulder has 30% of fliers on edge. Snoring gets 26% of travelers annoyed.
Remember, despite all this, you can find your true love on board a plane—just don’t steal their arm rest.
