I usually fly on my own so it is nice to have a friendly conversation with someone and why there are going to the destination

I talk to anyone. I greet people and judge if they want to talk or not. I find people feel uncomfortable talking because they cannot get up and leave.

It depends on my mood amd how tired I am. I've been silent on an 8 hour flight!

Small talk if they're open to it. It can break up a long, boring flight.

I enjoy meeting new people so when I get a friendly neighbor I love sharing a little bit of me with them. It helps the flight go by faster.

Depends on the passenger, but if appropriate a cordial conversation within reason is usually welcome.

I buy a transportation ticket, not a ticket to somebody's soap opera.

If I'm trapped in a metal tube with you, please don't try to make awkward conversation. I simply don't care, nor do I want to care.

I did at one time. Recent documentation of so many passenger's bad behavior has changed my attitude completely. There are 3 categories it seems: drunk....stoned....stupid or any combination thereof. S

It’s never a good idea to open that door. Getting it to close again can be next to impossible.

I prefer my headphones. Honestly it depends on who is seated next to me. I tend to be the sardine sandwiched between to whales manspreading on both sides of me.
