KLM announced its in-flight “Meet & Seat” matchmaker service in December, a social media-enabled opt-in feature allowing passengers to find compatible seatmates (like-minded or aligned business interests) based on their Facebook and LinkedIn profiles — and hopefully make the brand’s flying experience more enjoyable (or at least memorable).[more]
