Making Friends While Flying

April 24, 2013

Are you the type who pops your little white earphones into your ears as soon as you step out of the airport and board a flight? Or are you the type who likes to strike up a conversation with someone sitting next to you?

Skyscanner conducted a survey among international travellers to see how common it is for fellow flyers to forge relationships. The poll was completed by 700 flyers, and revealed that 39% of travellers have indeed developed a friendship with someone they met on a flight, and 6% even admitted to striking up something of a romantic liaison. The majority of these were said to be short-lived, while 5% spent time on holiday together as a direct result of meeting on their flight.

Social media also appears to be prolonging these longer-term relationships, with 3% staying in touch on social networks like Facebook and Twitter with someone they met on a flight. So why not try and unplug and detach yourself from your own world and introduce yourself to someone next to you. Who knows where it can lead to ;)
