Have you ever seen a passenger on your flight that you wanted to
stalk get to know but didn’t know how to do it? Well, look no further than Virgin America Airlines and their new “seat to seat” option.

Before attempting to join the mile high club, travelers may be well advised to do a little flirting. And while the former is questionably legal, Virgin America is hoping to give the latter a boost.
The airline’s new “seat to seat” feature allows travelers to buy drinks, snacks and meals and have them delivered to other passengers on the flight. WKMG reports the sender can then follow up with a message to the recipient via the plane’s in-flight texting system.
According to a release from Virgin America, the system includes a “digital seat map” to make sure your purchase is delivered to the correct person.
There’s no doubt the service gives new meaning to the concept of a “wingman,” however skeptics may hasten to point out that, unlike at a neighborhood bar, it’s harder to shrug off a creepy admirer at 35,000 feet.
This sounds like a fool-proof plan for stalker enabling. With no where to run. SMH.
