airBaltic, a Latvian airline, has introduced SeatBuddy that will allow the like minded people to come together for facilitated flights.
SeatBuddy allows the passengers to choose from a number of criteria to select and connect the passengers with same mind to the others of that mind at that time or throughout the flight. The company has used the technology of SatisFly in the SeatBuddy. Through this, the passengers first select the mood they want during the flight whether they want to talk or sleep or chat casually or left alone to do their personal tasks.
