…Meet Cute

We’ve all been there, you book your flight to whatever destination, and find yourself facing an empty seat.

Oh the possibilities.

That empty seat could hold almost anything and anyone. A screaming infant and their overwhelmed mother, the passenger who overindulged at the airport bar, or possibly the man or woman of your dreams.

If your hopes are leaning towards that last option, you’ll be happy to know that airlines are not interfering in your love life (sort of).

Airlines from Air France to Virgin Atlantic have introduced or at least attempted to take social networking to the skies.

While some just check to see if any of your Facebook friends are onboard (you can finally meet that total stranger who friended you at 3 in the morning), others are a little more controlling.

KLM recently began testing its “Meet and Seat” program, which allows passengers to upload details from their Facebook or LinkedIn profiles, and uses the data to choose seatmates.

And who is to say that not so randomly selected seat mate couldn’t also be your soul mate.

Yes, that does sound like a Hollywood rom-com in the making, but hey, it could happen…or maybe you should just hope that seat stays empty.
