An increasing amount of airlines are using ‘social seating’ to try and ease anxieties around sitting next to someone who exhibits annoying behavior on a flight.
The idea behind social seating is that you can control who sits in the seat beside you instead of it being purely Russian roulette.
You must opt in to social seating by sharing your Facebook or LinkedIn profile to check other participating passenger’s details and where they will be sitting.
This could be particularly beneficial for people traveling on business, transforming the plane cabin to a networking event. Or simply it could transform your previously dull few hours in the air into a fun exchange of similar interests with a new friend.
We predict this service could be popular among singletons too.
