  A new study from HSBC has determined that 1 in 50 airline passengers claims
to have found lasting love during a flight.
          汇丰银行的一项新研究表明,每50名飞机乘客中就有1人声称在飞机上找到了持久的爱情。
          The rest of us, meanwhile, are presumably just hoping we’re not stuck in
the middle seat when that happens.
          与此同时,我们其余的人可能只是希望,当爱情来临时,我们不会被卡在中间的座位上。
          The banking institution reportedly came to its findings after surveying
5,000 travelers from 141 countries across the globe, according to Travel and
Leisure.
          据《旅游与休闲》报道,这家金融结构据说在调查了来自全球141个国家的5000名游客后,得出了这一结论。
          Participants also revealed that an even larger chunk (14 percent) claims to
have made lasting friendships with a fellow passenger, while a similar amount
(16 percent) had made business contacts. And just over half (51 percent) of
respondents say they’ve made friendly conversation with a seatmate.
          参与调查的人还透露,更大一部分人(14%)声称与同行乘客建立了持久的友谊,而相似比例的人(16%)则有过商业往来。超过一半(51%)的受访者说他们曾经和邻座的人友好交谈过。
          As noted by Travel and Leisure, however, the most surprising statistic may
be HSBC’s findings that say an average of two sets of US travelers become
couples on every flight, although it’s unclear if those pairs stay as a couple
for very long.
          然而,正如《旅游与休闲》所指出的,最令人惊讶的数据可能是汇丰银行的调查结果,它显示平均每趟航班上都有两组美国游客成为情侣,尽管尚不清楚这两组人是否会长久在一起。
          That said, good luck to all you singles flying on Labor Day weekend. And
please, disregard any of the 49 nearby passengers cringing at your cheesy
pick-up lines.
          也就是说,单身朋友们,祝你们劳动节周末好运。(备注:此处的劳动节指九月的第一个周一)此外,请不要理会附近49名乘客中任何一人对你的俗气搭讪。
