Add mile-high flirting to the in-flight entertainment options now available on Virgin America, thanks to a cheeky new seat-to-seat ordering system, the brainchild of founder Richard Branson.
Without corralling a Virgin America flight attendant to act as a go-between, a passenger can order a cocktail, a snack or a meal, pay by credit card and have the treat delivered to a fellow traveler somewhere on the plane, thanks to Red, the airline's touch-screen entertainment system on the back of the headrests.
If that approach seems to go well, both passengers can then chat (text) using the seat-to-seat feature on Red, the airline's equivalent of Match.com.
What happens once the plane lands is off Red's radar.
