(CNN) - Love is literally in the air for some.

A new study from British bank HSBC suggests one in 50 airplane passengers meet the love of their life on an aircraft.

The results came from interviews with 2,100 people from more than 100 countries.

Over half of airplane passengers have struck up a conversation with a stranger on a plane. As long as you're considerate and respectful, perhaps your odds of meeting your soul mate are better at 30,000 feet than a bar.

It's only a matter of figuring out which of the 107,000 daily flights they're on.
