The Surprising Place You May Meet The Love Of Your Life

On a quest to find our significant other, most of us scan dance floors and dating apps.

But now a new study by HSBC UK reveals we may have been going about it all wrong.

Head to Jetstar, because apparently one in 50 people meet their future partner on a plane. Sounds a bit like a romantic comedy to us.

Despite well-directed fears of drooling on your neighbour’s shoulder, planes are actually a great place to strike up a conversation. Last month, “Plane Bae”, the story of two strangers meeting onboard went viral (simultaneously stirring up debate about privacy in a digital age).

In addition, the study found that 16 per cent of passengers form a business connection mid-air, and that 14 per cent of us have made a long-lasting friendship.
