In a world of hook-ups and break-ups; true love is like a unicorn, very hard to find. Nevertheless, the urge to find someone who can make us feel special is never-ending. We will go all out on Tinder, Ok Cupid, blind dates, and whatnot! We rarely find that one person who can mean the whole world to you.
However, have you ever tried to find your soulmate in an aeroplane? Bet, you won’t even think of that! A study done by HSBC suggests that you can find the love of your life in an aeroplane. Crazy, right?
Though there are more irritating fellow passengers rather than the one who adjust and make your travel easy; yet, 1 in every 50 passenger claims to have found their partners on board in an aircraft.
From interviews with 2,150 people from 141 countries in which participants were asked about the likelihood of meeting “the one” when they are 30,000 feet in the sky.
There are more facts to your “fairytale” romantic aspect of your travel. The reports state that about 48% of surveyed passengers freaked out when their fellow passengers removed their shoes, 65% were put off when another traveller was rude to a flight attendant, and about 46% complained about their fellow passenger drinking too much.
HSBC’s study reveals that over half of aeroplane passengers have struck up a conversation with a stranger on a plane.
The findings also suggest that one in seven fliers makes a lasting friendship while flying, while 16% add a new business connection to their network.
Nonetheless, one needs to respect privacy and have some respect for fellow passengers. Although the numbers may work up the charm on one’s brain but the need to respect each other should be a top priority. So, if you have tried everything and are yet to find that person who you feel your is worth it, then plan a trip and book your ticket.
Who knows? That you could turn out to the 1 in 50!
