Mile-high nuisances are endless. Crying babies, chatty Kathys, and crummy airline peanuts are just a small sampling of the many in-flight annoyances passengers face. One Latvian airline, however, is attempting to make mismatched seat partners a thing of the past.
This June, air Baltic will launch a new service that allows fliers to group themselves among like-minded passengers by selecting from a list of three “flight moods,” including working, networking, and do-not-bother options.
There’s more to this intelligent seating model than just intercontinental networking and unbothered sleep, however. The airline also allows travellers to enter additional information about hobbies and interest that can help group them with kindred spirits.
If you find yourself jet-setting around Latvia this summer (why wouldn’t you be?) and looking for some in-air business contacts, we think air Baltic should be your carrier of choice.
