“Flirting at 100,000 feet”

Perhaps almost as horrifying as snakes on a plane, we just can’t seem to get away from social media. Thanks to an in-flight chat room, all passengers on Virgin America will now be able to chat with anyone on the plane, regardless of proximity.

Pretty exciting times we live in. Traditional annoyances on flights included screaming babies or that guy that just wouldn’t shut up. Now anyone can interrupt our enjoyment of the in-flight programming with a chat request. With the quality of movies on some flights, that might not be so bad. And hey, now you can chat up that hottie near the lavatories without having to get up. I can’t wait to try it out when I fly to LA next weekend.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Happy Friday, everyone!
