Dating On The Go: Travel Site Uncovers The Single Gal’s Favorite Airlines

May 3, 2013  |  

Airports, the new hot dating spot? Well, people used to say the best place to pick up single women and men was at the grocery store, so why not airports? And with busy executives spending a lot of time traveling, airports might be the only place they come in contact with new people—and potential dates.

Many jet setters might be interested in a new survey by travel dating website that uncovered the most popular airlines for single women. Delta Airlines topped the list for finding single women, while United Airlines came close at #2 on the “7 Airlines Most Single Women Fly” survey. US Airways, Southwest Airlines, Virgin Airlines, Jet Blue Airlines and  AirTran Airways followed (in that order).

“Aside from the reasonable fares and amiable customer service, male business travelers frequently choose Delta,” says Brandon Wade, founder and CEO of, said in a press statement. “Increasing the airline’s appeal to a woman traveling for leisure, who may have her eyes open for a potential love interest.”

And, found the polling, single women are willing to talk to strangers in airports. A whopping 64 percent of women admitted they spoke to strangers while at the airport or airplane than anywhere else.

And the odds are in the single lady’s favor as single male travelers (meaning men traveling by themselves) outnumber lone female travelers by 15 percent.

So what we’re wondering is, where is the list of airlines single men prefer?
