Would you ever try to find love in an airport? At the moment, there's no hyper-localized option for Tindering at Gate C26, but there is App in the Aira frequent-flier app that lets you, among other things, look for a mate in the airport. If you're looking to start a conversation while you're killing time, might I suggest the following?
By staff writer Alex Willen. I just spent 30 minutes in a security line that stretched into the parking lot, but I was lucky enough to be standing behind an attractive young girl with whom I immediately struck up a conversation. The problem was, as always, we were flying to different parts of the country. The heartbreak lasted about seven seconds before I started trying to figure out ways to get upgraded to first class for free.
How knowing these signals can almost eliminate your chances of getting rejected or making an embarassing mistake with a girl The Mile High Club may have the reputation, but that tiny airplane bathroom is known to make the struggle real. It turns out that while some of us have been 30, feet up in the air, sitting through an awkward round of applause from our fellow passengers… an even more popular fantasy has been happening on the ground.
Put some good clothes on, shine your shoes, do your hair. Is this overkill for the airport or airplanes? For all anyone knows, you could be meeting an important business contact as soon as you walk outside the baggage claim.

Maybe Delta had it right with those napkins after all. Along those same lines, App in the Air — a travel app designed to help frequent fliers do things like estimate TSA wait times and get real-time fight updates — is also getting into the in-flight hookup game. The seven-year-old app is promoting a feature allowing fliers to see who else is on their flight, in their airport, or at their destination. It allows said fliers to then message each other in hopes that they too will find a love connection while wandering aimlessly through the skies.
But forget the mile high club —the "Terminal 5 club" or whatever you want to call it—is where the real action is, because according to a survey conducted by a flight-shopping website US. Normally, the app -- which has been around since -- is a "personal flying assistant" and allows you to check on the status of your flight, shows airport maps, and logs your miles for you. The messaging option is a new feature, however, and makes your profile and information public, so other passengers can see your name, home country, how much you fly, etc.
