Facebook and Linkedin to select your co-passengers while flying

Facebook, LinkedIn may make the friendly skies even friendlier | Seattle: ", KLM Airlines is allowing you to use your Facebook or LinkedIn profile to choose who you sit next to. It's totally optional -- you choose someone who likes to talk or prefers to be left alone.

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, founded in 1919 and now part of Air France KLM, confirms to TechCrunch the feature will launch next year.

KLM says their new social seating tool, called “meet & seat”, will work with Facebook and Linkedin, but not Twitter. The tool will be opt-in only. When pressed if both people will be required to accept a seat pairing, KLM couldn’t say because they are still in the development phase.

The travel website Tnooz, which first reported the story, wondered if “this is something passengers really want as opposed to a service the airline believes they might want.” USA Today wrote about the possibilities this could create for in-flight dating, suggesting it “could be fodder for a flight from hell.”

KLM has pushed the envelope on technology before. TechCrunch reported two years ago about the airline’s idea to hand out e-book readers to passengers. 

KLM isn’t the only one mixing seat selection with social networks. Earlier this year, Malaysia Airlines launched a system that allows passengers to book a flight and check-in all on the airline’s Facebook page. Passengers can also see if any Facebook friends are on their flight.
