DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (CNN) - Airplanes may be associated with uncomfortable sitting next to annoying people, but do you believe there is a chance to find your partner on a flight? A new study by HSBC UK shows that 1 out of every 50 passengers will meet their partner on a plane. The results came in interviews with 2,150 people from 141 countries who were asked about the possibility of meeting their partners while they were up to 30,000 feet in the air. In addition, the travel habits of 6,000 people from Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates and the United States were questioned. In the 1960s, the romantic side of travel was promoted on travel posters, but with increased mobility using affordable air carriers, air travel became less luxurious, and most travelers did not travel in search of love. However, the same study reveals that more than half of the passengers are starting talks with foreign travelers. Romantic relations are not only created on board airplanes. The results show a strong friendship between 1 out of 7 passengers and 16% of their business network. However, romantic relations are not easily formed. The poll respondents said they are uncomfortable, with 48% saying they are uncomfortable when other passengers remove their shoes, and 65% are annoyed when they see someone who is rude to flight attendants. Forty-six percent of them included overcooking as a complaint. Thirty-seven per cent of passengers were bothered by the use of a large space in the upper cabin of the aircraft, as well as discomfort when using a passenger seat (32 per cent), sleeping on their shoulders (30 per cent) and snoring (26 per cent). Therefore, you have always respected and respected the personal space of others, your partner may be waiting for you on an airplane! Now, the question remains: Which of the 107,000 trips will your partner be on?
