What about a musician? That is what a Twitter user, Eric Alper, asked his followers. Which musician would you like to sit on a long flight?

Some Shared Their Experience:
I’ve sat next to Bryan Adams and he was a lovely person to chat with. Very engaging. Also sat with Robert Plant who was also fantastic. I think, if he would engage, Thom Yorke would be fun to talk to, also Bono. Fight me on the last one. I bet he’s awesome https://t.co/6qCSEHicoV

While some responded well to the viral tweet, others preferred to come up with hilarious memes. Again, a few of them thought to respect societal norms instead and not bothering the passenger on the next seat, irrespective of who the person is. Quite impressive, though!

It doesn’t matter because I respect the societal norms of being locked in the giant metal sky tube and don’t force my seatmates to talk to me https://t.co/tnXIYSnNRc

How to Sleep?
How could you pick anyone famous?
I can hardly imagine anything more uncomfortable than sitting next to someone I was excited to talk to but also felt I shouldn't bother for several hours.
How would you sleep? https://t.co/szGJAj97av

Aeroplanes present quite a perplexing social dilemma. It is difficult to meet people and somehow also difficult to escape them while flying. So, if you happen to run into your favourite musician, make that moment worth remembering, yet respect their privacy.
