Airline Passengers Facebook
December 25, 2011 by staff
Airline Passengers Facebook, There are a few dreaded co-passengers you always fear you’ll be forced to sit by on a flight: the lady with the screaming baby, the linebacker who horns in on your elbow room, or a talker who won’t shut up long enough for you to put on your headphones.
Now KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is introducing a social way for you to pick your own seat. According to USA Today, the carrier will let you choose where you sit by looking at the social media profiles of other fliers.
When you check in online, you can choose where you rest your behind for a couple of hours by browsing Facebook and LinkedIn profiles of passengers who have opted to link their pages to their e-tickets, selecting a seatmate with similar interests.
USA Today said the service is available to anyone who wants to participate, but you’re not obligated to connect your profile.
Could this spell disaster at 30,000 feet or prompt a flood of new members of the mile high club?
KLM isn’t the first airline to introduce social seat selecting. TNooz noted that Malaysia Airlines in February rolled out a Facebook app that lets you book your flight, check-in, and see if any of your Facebook friends are on the same flight or traveling nearby all without leaving Facebook.
In other flying news, American Airlines recently gained approval from the FAA for pilots to use iPads in the cckpit, without having to power them down during takeoff and landing. These iPads replace the hefty 38-pound flight bag containing operating manuals, navigational charts, handbooks, checklists, logbooks, weather information, and all the materials that pilots traditionally carry when they fly a plane.
