The mile-high club could have more members in the very near future.
Wingman is a forthcoming app that "connects you with attractive people on your flight, all before you touch down." Similar to Tinder, the app allows users to create a profile including pictures, first name, age and occupation. The difference however, is that Wingman will include a list of travelers on the same flight who are also using the app. Using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth accessibility, the app lets you flirt your way through any flight.
Buzzfeed copywriter and creator of Wingman, Gabe Whaley, discussed his thought process in an interview with ANIMAL on Jan. 30: “I’m pretty sure that at some point, anyone who’s flown has had a thought like, ‘I wonder what it would be like to talk to that person. Too bad it’s never going to happen, because the seating arrangement didn’t provide for that.’”
Although it's still being developed and has not yet been approved by Apple, people can sign up for notifications about Wingman's development to follow its progress and participate in the beta launch.
