MILE-HIGH CLUB

Richard Branson Wants To Get You Laid On Virgin America

Screen shot 2013-04-24 at 7.52.26 PMStill sad about being the last of your friends to join the mile-high club? Fear not, because there’s a new in-flight feature on Virgin America designed to help you “get lucky.”

Virgin CEO Richard Branson introduced the new “Seat-to-Seat Delivery” service on domestic flights this week, an option that gives passengers the opportunity to send drinks and snacks to other passengers via an in-flight entertainment system. Unfortunately, the in-flight entertainment system doesn’t have a great gay-dar.

Gawker calls the new invention “straight up creepy”, but a commenter points out other uses for the in-flight “creeper” system. Apparently the new feature also allows you to send messages to other passengers on the flight without forwardly purchasing a drink beforehand.

We don’t know about you, but we’re done playing the googly-eyed, is-he-into-me? game on cross-country flights. Aside from being a potential catalyst for unwanted encounters, the new system could help, uh, aide you into the arms of a mile-high lover.

What’s the verdict? Would you use the new in-flight entertainment system for mile-high hookups, or just prefer to snooze?
