So, 3% of time spent on shopping doesn’t look too impressive at first. This blog from Boeing suggests that the average flight length today is 6 hours [link].  This leaves the passengers about 11 mins for shopping on average.  Doesn’t look like a lot (when compared to 6 hours).

But, apparently, people shop much faster when on a plane: “duty-free on airlines is a US$3 billion business worldwide, and still growing” [link].
