Virgin America

There's online matchmaking...and then there's on-airplane matchmaking.  One U.S. airline is making it easier to break the ice at 35,000.

FOX News Radio's Chris Hoenig explains:

Virgin America head honcho Sir Richard Branson has ideas for mile-high matchmaking.

(Branson) "Direct her attention to the window, where she'll see your sub-orbital spaceship composing a haiku in skywriting."

Some are a little less bold, but the one debuting on his airline is simpler...and cheaper.

(Branson) "If you're in the mood for a cocktail, why drink alone?"

Now, you can use a screen at your seat to buy a drink, a snack or a meal for someone else on the plane and follow it up with a text message to break the ice.

Virgin isn't the first to link passengers.  Dutch airline KLM lets you attach your Facebook and LinkedIn profiles to your seat at check-in.

(Branson) "I'm not a betting man, but I say your chances of deplaning +1 are at least 50%."
