Airline lets you pick a seatmate using Facebook2/24/2012
KLM Airlines has launched a program that allows you to choose your seatmate based on their Facebook or LinkedIn profile, hopefully preventing those awkward boarding gate staredowns when you silently hope you're not beside the guy who's singing along with his iPod. The program, called "Meet and Seat," is available on flights between Amsterdam and New York and San Francisco and Sao Paolo, with hopes to add additional flights in the future.
The New York Times notes that you can't "reject" someone who's chosen you, but you can pick another seat. Great, now we have to worry about being unfriended in the air.
Would you give "Meet and Seat" a try?
