Meet and seat

KLM are reportedly developing a ‘Meet and Seat’ service where passengers can choose who they sit next to by accessing the LinkedIn and Facebook pages of fellow travellers during check-in. (Cheers Alex.)

In order to choose your ideal seatmate, both parties have to agree to participate in the service. KLM believes it will provide an opportunity for networking, though other reports suggest it’s more likely to be used as a matchmaking tool. Either way, giving people the power to choose who they sit next to presents an opportunity to make the journey more profitable and interesting.
