A survey of 50,000 millionaires conducted by SeekingArrangement.com, touted as the world's largest "sugar daddy" dating website, and SeekingMillionaire.com, a matchmaking website, reveals the U.S. airlines flown most often by rich bachelors and generous sugar daddies.

The press release sent to CNBC.com, titled "Top U.S. Airlines for Landing a Rich Boyfriend or Sugar Daddy," reveals you'll have the best chances of meeting a millionaire when flying Delta Air Lines .

"If you want the best shot of landing a rich boyfriend, fly Delta Airlines. If you want a generous sugar daddy, fly American Airlines. If you want a high net-worth husband, fly United Airlines ," says Brandon Wade, founder and chief executive officer of SeekingArrangement.com and SeekingMillionaire.com in the release.

Of the 50,000 polled, 24.1 percent fly Delta with an average net worth of $3,725,743. United came in second at 20.5 percent, but millionaires here had the highest net worth averaging $4,697,084. Southwest Airlines made the cut, too, but was labeled as the "least generous sugar daddy airline," with millionaires having a 'paltry' average net worth of $2,968,794.

Wade further informs to steer clear of peanut airlines, such as Frontier, Spirit and Allegiant , if your goal is to land someone wealthy. Less than 1 percent of millionaires surveyed flew with them.

And as you might expect, the majority of those surveyed fly in style. And 74 percent frequent an airline lounge, 78 percent are top-tier members in an airline frequent flyer program and 83 percent fly business class.

Okay... back to regularly scheduled programming.
