Getting Lucky at 35,000 Feet

Thursday April 25, 2013 / Posted by Sean H.

We’ve all been there.  You’re on a flight and that guest in 18C catches your eye.  What do you do?

In Junior High, I would have asked my best friend to pass a note.  In college, I probably would have tried one of those cheesy pick-up lines, “Do you believe in love at first sight or do I need to walk by again?”  Now, it’s time to update that process.  With our new seat-to-seat delivery feature, you can send an in-flight cocktail to that friendly stranger and follow up with a message on our seat-to-seat chat system.

To help celebrate this new innovation, Virgin America is kicking off a digital promotion inviting users to share how they are using the new “Seat-to-Seat Delivery” feature.  Facebook submissions are being collected from April 22nd through May 22nd with two top entries scoring grand prize packages including mood-lit Virgin America flights from LAX to Las Vegas, a two-night stay in a Terrace Studio at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, dinner for two at a restaurant of choice from the Restaurant Collection at The Cosmopolitan, and VIP entry to Marquee Nightclub and Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan.

There is no better person than our Innovator-In-Chief, Sir Richard Branson to give us all some tips on how to “seal the deal,” so watch the video below and next time you’re on a flight remember that a small gesture of a drink can lead to much more. ;)
