Virgin America is making it easier to befriend other passengers at 35,000 feet.
The Burlingame, Calif.-based airline’s touch-screen entertainment units on every seat now have a feature that lets passengers buy drinks, meals and snacks for fellow passengers and follow it up with a text message.
If you are feeling really charitable, the entertainment system lets you swipe your credit card and open a tab so you can keep the party going throughout the flight.
The service was launched last month with the start of a new Virgin America route from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
