A raunchy research project has revealed everything there is to know about the mile high club – uncovering where, when and with who travellers are having sex with on planes.
International matchmaking site Saucy Dates surveyed nearly 12,000 passengers and found a staggering 78 per cent wanted to join the famous club, but just five per cent actually had.
Nearly 40 per cent of those said they shared the experience with their partner, 30 per cent with a stranger, 18 per cent with a crew member and 15 per cent with a friend.

‘I overheard the stewardess talking to her friend, telling him that she hadn’t had any sex and she broke up with her boyfriend and it had been a long time,’ a 39-year-old man said.
‘I hit on her for a while and she finally asked me if we wanted to go in the bathroom and have sex. She told me there was no time for foreplay.’
A 24-year-old woman who claimed to have sex with a stranger said: ‘It was huge fun. I did it with the guy who was sat in the seat next to me.
‘We had been chatting for a while and he just asked. We both carefully made our way to the bathroom, lucky the plane was dark as it was a night flight.’
Perhaps unsurprisingly, toilets were found to be the most popular location choice, with 59 per cent of the club using the relatively private area of the plane for their rendezvous.
Just over 30 per cent said they had sex on plane seats, nine per cent in the kitchen and one per cent even claimed they had sex in the cockpit.

A 32-year-old man who claimed to be part of the one per cent said: ‘We both work the night shift and it was a spark of the moment kind of thing.’
Joining the mile high club is something most passengers would never dare to do out of fear of getting caught – but it turns out most will get away with it.
Around 86 per cent don’t get caught, while 14 per cent aren’t so lucky, according to the research.
‘I went to bathroom first, he followed. It was just getting good when someone knocked on door needing to use bathroom,’ a 38-year-old woman revealed.

‘We had no choice but to come out head high. I was laughing and still enjoyed myself.’
Around 13 per cent of people who had sex in the toilet were caught, while 14 per cent who were amorous on seats were busted in the act.
More than 20 per cent having sex in the kitchen were interrupted and 27 per cent of those in the cockpit.
