Plane journeys can do funny things to our inhibitions.
Crammed next to strangers and drinking cocktails during normal daylight hours – it’s no wonder things heat up between passengers on a fairly frequent basis.
According to this new infographic based on a study of 2,000 frequent fliers, one in five confessed to having had an in-flight fling of some sort.
And contrary to the popular stereotype, most of the action – nearly 80 per cent of it – happens in the economy seats, with only 25 per cent in the bathroom and 21 per cent in first or business class.
As for the specifics, nearly 41 per cent of those surveyed have kissed someone on a flight, while 16.5 per cent have ‘fondled’ someone and roughly seven per cent have got ‘handsy below the belt’.
Fewer than four per cent admitted to truly joining the Mile-High Club by having intercourse in-flight, according to the report from Stratos Jets.
