Think the person sitting across the aisle on your flight is cute? Well don’t just sit there—send over a drink! Or a bag of pretzels.
Virgin America is allowing passengers to make potential connections on board with its new, first-of-its-kind, Red seat-to-seat delivery service that allows passengers to identify a passenger to send a drink or food item.
The service is available on all Virgin America Flights and uses the company’s Red in-flight entertainment system.
Virgin announced the service to mark its latest expansion in Las Vegas, connecting flights from Vegas to Los Angeles. Travelers are able to send in-flight cocktails and food to fellow passengers and follow up with a text message on its seat-to-seat chat function.
The company’s CEO Sir Richard Branson said in a release that there’s a 50% chance you may meet someone using the new flirty service.
Virgin told FOXBusiness.com that the service just rolled out this week, so it does not yet have numbers on people using it, nor does it have guest testimonials.
