    This month's American Way has a similar story in the letters to the editor section. Some lucky couple 'got a thing going' while discussing the American Way on an AA flight

    Yep, Sobore is no stranger to this flirting / connection game. I'd still be doing it if it wasn't for the restraining orders and lifetime bans. :eek::D.

    I'll have to remember that..... not that I ever have a seatmate on a plane that isn't twice my age or female.

    Valentine's day must be coming -- after all it comes about two weeks after the ground hog does his/her thing.

    I always see the "hot" girls walking down the aisle and I try to use mind control to get them to sit next to me. Im batting 0 for ∞...

    If my wife is reading this, I always get to sit next to a hot girl when we fly together.

    You should fly WN and board right after hot girls and choose your seats appropriately.

    You know, I never thought of that, seriously....I never want to board too late and miss out on the bin space. I was just focusing my time on mind control. :cool:

    On Virgin America, you do not even have to sit beside the person as they have a chat function on their IFE! :)

    I see a new fee in Spirit's future. Attractive SeatMate Surcharge (ASS). You specify age and gender and the agent assigns you a desirable seat.

    same here with me. The closest encounter was an extremely cute female seated behind me. No wonder I had to take so many pee breaks.

    Hence my problem as well. Seems like there are a few of us exceptions on here though.

    I have made some business connections though. Gathered a lot of cards, new LinkedIn connections. I'm hoping that one day, I'll sit next to someone whose company really needs a good finance person and is located in a beautiful land far away.

    Don't you get assigned boarding order when you check in, though? I guess you could scan the seats for a hot guy/gal and make it a point to sit next to them.

    One time I was stuck in whY and had an nice window seat...I saw a cute chick sit down in front of me and some slovenly guy in the middle so I asked the guy if he wanted to swap seats (my window for his middle) he agreed so we swapped seats and I sat down in the middle. The FA comes back and thinking the guy is me offers him an upgrade to 3F and I go Heyyy I'm DIG/R so the FA is all confused... I ask her if she's got an extra seat up front and she says matter of fact group of 7 no-showed so I do some shuffling with the gate agent and get the cute chick upgraded (turns out she was a silver so probably would have got it anyways)... That was a good flight on CO.

    We just are just getting WN service here in ATL so I haven't spent much time with them.... but from what I have, I'll take my chances in meeting guys elsewhere :p Their boarding drove me crazy and I happen to love my upgrades. I don't know that my travel ways would mesh well with their average customer's philosophy.

    DIG/R_1K, shame about that one. But you never know until you try. At least you had the nerve to find out. Some of us are big ole chickens.
