Almost one in 10 Australian men admitted to having had a relationship or fling with a co-passenger on an airline flight, when questioned during a survey.
The survey on inflight preferences, involving 1,000 respondents, revealed that women were half as likely as men to admit to a high-altitude fling.
Seventy per cent of respondents in the survey nominated their seat location as the most important factor contributing to the enjoyment of their journey.
The survey, by online travel specialist Expedia.com.au, found the front of the plane was the most popular seating place among 37 per cent of respondents.
Almost 30 per cent nominated an exit row, 19 per cent said over the wing, while only 15 per cent said the back of the plane.
In fact, Expedia has recommended that travellers should select a seat at the time of booking.
"We know that being able to choose the most suitable seat improves the comfort of a flight and the overall travel experience of our customers," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Expedia's Louise Crompton as saying, while releasing the survey results.
The travel company has introduced new technology that enables customers to view and select their seating preferences while booking certain international flights.
