1 in 50 find love on an airplane

One in 50 people find love on an airplane.

A study by HSBC has found that one in 50 people fall in love whilst 30000 feet in the air whilst one in seven people make a lasting friendship whilst aboard. And 16 per cent of fliers met a new business connection during their flight.

It comes after it was revealed that seat kickers have been deemed the worst passengers to be stuck near on a plane.

An Expedia study has found that 51 per cent of people rank seat kickers as the worst person to be near when you're heading abroad with the 'Aromatic Passenger' coming second at 43 per cent and the 'Inattentive Parent' (39 per cent) in third place.

Nisreene Atassi, Global Head of Communications for Expedia brand, said: "Whether you've been on one vacation or 100, you've likely experienced some form of annoying behavior while travelling. At Expedia, we want to ensure that every leg of a traveler's journey is enjoyable. Our goal with this study is to better understand travelers' biggest pet peeves and offer tips to help them maximize comfort and minimize annoyances."
