Melbourne: Australians may be known for their down-to-earth and friendly nature, but ninety percent of them admitted that they avoid conversations with fellow passengers during a flight, according to a survey conducted by Expedia.com.au.
However, they were highly motivated to converse with flight attendants, with fifteen percent of men confessing to flirting with a member of the cabin crew during a flight, reports news.com.au.
When surveyed, both Australian men and women agreed that being stuck in a confined space for a long time was the worst part of air travel. Lack of seat comfort followed in at second.
Turbulence and having to pass time at the airport were also high on the list of air travel dislikes.
The survey also revealed that only four percent of flyers have had a relationship with someone they met in a flight.
