Social Seating or how to get a perfect neighbour on your bus trip

|

In the travel industry everybody’s talking about the Dutch airline KLM. In 2012 they plan to launch a tool called Social Seating. It is about a help to get the perfect neighbor sitting next to you using social media as a tool.

In theory, KLM would integrate some social media to its system, search to match the perfect neighbor for the travels of the executives. There’s no doubt that this is a way to make travel more comfortable.

In rentautobus.com we flip with every single possibility that could bring this type of matching. Maybe for short trip it cannot be so interesting, but how about to have a perfect partner to travel with between 2 countries?

For example, let’s pretend that we are two foody bloggers and that we are traveling from Paris to Madrid on bus or coach and we want some good insider food tips before to get there. We would only need that the system searches social media profiles and finds the right person. Perhaps there is a chef traveling in that bus? Or even better, the owner of a take-away food store. With the benevolence of the providence, this type of situation can happen.

This invention was proposed before by other airlines like Malaysia Airlines and Virgin. But there is not a big Airline or coach hire company yet with this proposal especially from Spain, maybe our friends from Alsa want to make something like that?

And you, what other use would you give to this Social Seating, without the obvious meeting of the girl/boy of your dreams?
