Seat selection based on Facebook profiles

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: K.W KLM will launch an internet service known as “meet and seat” which gives travellers the opportunity to select who they sit next to by access to Facebook and LinkedIn profiles.No longer a ‘luck of the draw’ situation for solo travellers, the seat selection scheme will be launched next year.  However, the airline remains tight lipped as many details still need to be worked out.With many airlines already charging for seat selection more than 24 hours ahead of travel, KLM was unable to say if they will charge for the service.Seat maps of aircraft are already available online for most airlines, so this added scheme’s technology appears simple.last_img
