That social seating on airlines is not just a gimmick, it is a startup
Social seating hasn’t shown a market yet, but nice feature for airlines, not a startup based on it.
Excerpt from TheNextWeb
Avoiding That Guy, and making sure you sit next to someone who rocks is what SeatID is all about.
SeatID does social seating as a SaaS solution for airlines and travel websites, enabling individuals who opt-in the ability to see who else is on the chosen flight. More than that, it also lets people see who will be on other flights before purchasing a ticket.
SeatID has signed a deal with AeroSvit, Ukrainian Airlines. Which is useful for almost no one if we look at the grand scheme of things.
