I have an idea to combine a dating service with airline seat booking. Do you see where I’m going with this?
When choosing seats instead of just being boring and choosing things like ‘aisle’ or ‘window’, you would have to enter things about your sexual orientation, your age, your hobbies and interests (even if one of those is perhaps a desire to join the mile-high club). This way, potential dates might sit on either side of you… and you have the whole flight to get to know one another… with nowhere else to go… for 7 hours.
Okay, maybe it’s not such a good idea. But I think it could work. And, of course, the airlines would only charge an extra $25 per seat for this service. And maybe if you get married – you can get a free roundtrip ticket to your honeymoon destination. C’mon Easy Jet, Ryannair, Virgin, or Jet Blue…seems like something right up your alley.
Bonus Free Random airline flying tips:
- Ask for the exit row: I always do. I don’t care if I’m 5’4″, first come, first served buddy.
- When traveling as a couple in a 3 seat configuration, book the window and aisle seat. A single person will rarely book the middle seat unless the flight is full-then you can just move together if necessary.
- www.seatguru.com – A great site with graphic seating charts of most airlines’ jets and with ratings and tips to help you pick the best seat.
- Favorite Flight Booking Sites (they don’t charge fees – like Orbitz & Expedia – and they are aggregator sites meaning they look at all the airlines and other sites for you):
- After checking these sites, ALWAYS go to the actual airlines’ website and check the cost – oftentimes the cheapest is there.
