Choose Your Own Adventure of the Day: The Netherlands’ national air carrier, KLM, is set to launch a Facebook app that will allow passengers to pick their seatmates based on similarities in their online profiles.
After purchasing a ticket, patrons will be invited to link their Facebook profiles to their check-in information using a web tool called “Meet & Seat.”
They will then be presented with a list of other passengers with similar interests, hobbies, and/or vocations who have done the same, and will be able to select the person they feel most comfortable sharing the flight with.
The app is still being developed, and the official launch isn’t expected until next year, but other airlines are already looking into building similar “social seating tools.”
