Study: Empty middle seats on air planes reduces risk of unwanted conversations by 50%

Nashville, TN - Just hours after a report was released showing that empty middle seats on airplanes cut exposure to COVID-19 by 57%, an unrelated study has found that empty middle seats also reduces the risk of unwanted conversations by 33%.

Many passengers are lobbying airlines to keep seats empty or return to empty middle seats immediately.

One supporter said, "Between the two studies, empty middle seats protect us from really horrible things by like by 107%. This is a no-brainer. Leave it empty."

The study found that passengers are less concerned about getting COVID-19 on planes than getting into an extended conversation with someone who has been self-quarantining for 12 months.

This is a developing story.
