Survey: Travelers becoming less social on planes
While sharing photos of food, pets, today vacations and everything among may be the norm, travelers aren’t as more likely to take part in person, in accordance with a recently available survey conducted by The GO Group, a global ground travel and transportation company.
Travelers were asked how likely these were to speak to their seatmate. Of the a lot more than 200 respondents, just five percent said they talk with their seatmates and nine percent responded &ldquo always;frequently.” The most frequent answer, at 44 percent, was “sometimes” while 30 % said and eight percent said &ldquo rarely;never.” Just five percent said they speak to their neighbor only when your partner initiates conversation.
These results vary weighed against an identical survey conducted by the ongoing company in 2015, in which 25 % said they consult with their seatmates “frequently” and almost 20 percent said they achieve this if the conversation was started by their neighbor.
Women are chattier than men slightly, with six percent responding “always,” weighed against men at four percent; these total results were exactly the same in both 2019 and 2015 surveys.

Survey participants also were asked should they have ever formed a continuing relationship with someone they met on a plane. Eight percent of respondents replied “yes;” 87 percent responded “no” and five percent “don’t recall.”
“With everyone’s usage of cellular devices, laptops and in-flight programming on planes, folks are less likely to entertain themselves with one-on-one conversations while flying,” says John McCarthy, president of The GO Group.
