KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has announced that in 2012 they will introduce the ability to select your seat mate from your social network account with Facebook and LinkedIn. Users will have the ability to link their social media accounts to their KLM flight information. This information will then be publicly available for all users to see.
- Link your facebook to your KLM flight information
- Check in online
- Find a seatmate through your social network
Its not clear if this will help land that elusive deal, set up a cab share to the airport or just help make introductions for the mile high club. Malaysia is also reported to roll out a similar service in 2012. One thing is for sure, AirTroductions has already rolled out a similar service. With over 26,000 registered AirTroductions users they appear to have found a service customers want.
