I fly a lot. These are the people I sit by. Sometimes it's 30 minutes. Sometimes it's 15 hours. We talk more often than not, usually the basics. Maybe one day you and I will end up sitting together. Wheels up!
My LAX-SYD Seatmate for 15 hours, Owen. Cool dude. We had actual conversation and swapped biz cards due to being in similar industries. Welcome to Australia, mate!
