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%.
