Dutch airliner KLM have recently outed their latest bid to make flying a more adventurous experience. Rather than bother with a travel agent or go for those last-minute and utterly horrible airport ticket purchases, they now allow passengers to choose their seats thru a Facebook-powered app. There’s more to Meat & Seat than finding a surprise seatmate via Facebook though, as users can access Facebook profiles of other passengers to choose exactly who they want to sit next too. That’s pretty nice.
Of course, if you don’t give a damn about other passengers Meet & Seat isn’t a compulsory. For the young and willing, however, KLM’s little social experiment might become an opportunity for torrid in-flight romance, which is not the best way to go about the romance business. You never really know if the person sitting next to you is a covert assassin with a secret mission. Ever seen that movie Redeye?
Remember that Taiwanese animation studio KLM? Yeah, they did a story on this KLM Facebook campaign too. Here:
