Love is in the air

How many times have you flown and been seated next to someone who is rude, obnoxious, snores (I'm sure the possibilities are endless) and couldn't wait for your flight to land so you would never have to see the person again? Wouldn't it be great if you could sit next to someone of your choosing you'd like to strike up a conversation, or more, with?

Airintroductions.com is exploring the possibilities. The service allows you to post a profile and search for people that will be on your flight who you would be interested in sitting next to. Contact is made through anonymous e-mail, at which point each person decides whether they would like to meet at the airport and get reassigned to adjoining seats. The cost (which kicks in once contact is made) is $5 per flight or $19.95 a month.

Another appealing option for people like me who enjoy reading or relaxing and don't really want to talk to people is to search for a like-minded individual who also doesn't want to talk. Call me cynical, but that's what I'm going for.
