Want to Pick Your Airline Seatmate on Facebook?
I suppose in some ways this might be creepy. On the other hand, if you were flying to a big conference, it might be interesting to sit with folks who might be attending the same conference.
KLM launched Meet & Seat on 3 February, making it the first airline to integrate social networking in its regular flight process. Passengers with a reservation can easily see who else will be on board via their Facebook or LinkedIn accounts.
Erik Varwijk, Managing Director KLM: “The new service was developed in cooperation with our customers. Following its success during the first month, we’re seeing a demand for the service on new routes. Meet & Seat is primarily used by business travelers for networking. The ten new destinations lend themselves perfectly for this.”
Here’s How KLM’s Meet & Seat Works
If you have booked a KLM flight on one of the pilot sights:
- Go to KLM.com and log in to Manage my Booking.
- Go to the ‘Seating’ tab and click ‘Meet & Seat’ on the right.
- Log in to your Facebook or LinkedIn account.
- Select the profile details you want to share with other passengers and add your travel details.
The seat map will show you other passengers’ profile details and which seat they have chosen. You can select your seat – for example next to someone with similar interests.
