Finding love at the airport or in the sky

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Airport delays can be a huge pain but can they also be an opportunity for you to find that special someone? Well now, some companies want to make it easier for you to find love on the ground and up in the air.

One company says the airport is the perfect place to scout out a date, especially if you're stuck with a long delay. And now is apparently a good time to put yourself out there.

The website meetattheairport.com says since Monday, when budget cut furloughs triggered heavy delays nationwide, traffic on their website has spiked with more people signing up to commiserate with.

When we logged on, some 22,000 users were online looking for love connections while they wait for their connections.

One airline even allows you to flirt when you're up in the air. Sir Richard Branson's virgin America is offering customers a chance to connect with the hottie a few rows up by sending him or her a drink or a message through digital entertainment system.

Dating coach Tracey Steinberg says she has had a number of clients meet in the air or while flying.

"I think flirting is great at any altitude," she says. "You already have something in common with them, you're going from one place to another, so might as well take it to the next step."

And while there are obvious risks to connecting with a total stranger, Steinberg says the airport is probably one of the better places to do it because it's a public place.
