Those cozy quarters..the scarcity of armrests..the potential to get (six inches closer to) horizontal..What isn't romantic about airlines? The new Central European carrier Sky Europe must be banking on that as it builds up its SkyDate program on flights within Europe.
On the first SkyDate in June, passengers traveling between Brussels and Vienna were given the opportunity to meet 10 singles over the course of the flight. But those traveling on the upcoming London-Prague SkyDate (November 28 and 29) will have the opportunity not only to speed-date on board, but also to stay overnight in Prague and take a city tour. So in case you don not make that instant connection during the flight, maybe solid ground will be kinder.
As aisle-seat fans, we have been burned a couple of times by middle-seat passengers who needed to get up every 10 minutes during transcontinental flights, but apparently that is not a drawback to Europe's lonely hearts. The overnight stay is a genius idea, though. If nothing else, it's a chance to play High School Tour Group again, sans chaperones.
