Scoring a date on an airplane is anything but a guarantee -- but when luck is with you, and you're planted next to (or even near) a cute girl you'd like to get to know better, your seat is worth more than a first class ticket to China. You've got anywhere from one to 20 hours to win her over, and she can't run. Break the ice by asking for her thoughts on the peanuts, or by offering her a tasty baked good from home that can replace her airplane-quality gruel. Be careful, though: One conversational misstep, and you'll be spending the next 12 awkward hours kicking yourself for asking if she thinks James Taylor's "Fire and Rain" is actually about a plane crash. Take your time and don't blow it!
