Kazakhstan residents will be able to get information on people who will sit next to them onboard via Facebook and LinkedIn, Tengrinews.kz reports citing KLM.
The airline's new service is called Meet & Seat. To use it, one has to share his profile in Facebook or LinkedIn after booking the ticket. Besides personal information the social networks will also be providing information on the plane seat numbers of the neighbors.
The innovative online-service is intended for those who are eager to meet new people and establish business contacts during long flights. “The passenger has to share his profile in Facebook or LinkedIn in “Manage my Booking” menu on klm.com to be able to see open profiles of other passengers and their seats and choose his own seat,” the message states.
The service is available during the period starting 90 days prior and finishing 48 hours before the flight and only on intercontinental flights.
