    In an effort to promote the launch of its ultra-cheap Los Angeles to Las Vegas route, Virgin introduced a new "Seat-to-Seat Delivery" option that allows passengers to hit on other passengers by sending them unsolicited drinks, meals, and snacks through the in-flight entertainment system.

    The purpose of this feature, according to airline president Sir Richard Branson, is to help Virgin travelers "get lucky."

    "I'm not a betting man, but I'd say your chance of deplaning with a plus-one are at least 50%," Branson says in a video explaining how the function works.

    Understandably, many are finding the system not so much convenient as straight up creepy.

    Anyone is welcome to send me drinks and snacks. Whether you get lucky is, well, let's say, unlikely.

    This will most likely be used to send food to family members one has been separated from. What is the BFD?
