LOS ANGELES -- Tired of striking out at the singles’ bars?
Virgin America is now allowing passengers to send over a drink to that hottie in seat 47B.
The airline launched a new service allowing passengers to send a drink to someone on the plane who’s caught their eye. It is done through the airline’s in-flight entertainment system.
Passengers pinpoint their designated person with Virgin’s digital seat map, browse the menu, and have a drink, snack or meal sent over. A passenger can even follow up with a text through the seat-to-seat messaging system.
Virgin America launched the service to mark the start of a Los Angeles to Las Vegas service. However, it is available on all U.S. flights.
Virgin Boss Sir Richard Branson introduced the new feature in a video. He said the chances of deplaning with a plus-one are at least 50%.
