‘Wingman’ App Gives You a Shot at Joining the Mile-High Club

by Hazel Chua

What do you do to pass the time when you’re on a 16-hour flight? Most people sleep, while others read books or magazines. Some watch movies or TV shows, and there are those who spend their time chatting up the passenger beside them or trying to make eye contact with someone a few aisles down.

For the latter group, there’s Wingman.

It’s an app that’s currently in development. It was thought up by BuzzFeed copywriter Gabe Whaley, who explains what inspired him to create the app: “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.’ And of course, most people have at least some sort of exposure to what the mile high club is.”

The software is designed to work via Bluetooth in case Wi-Fi isn’t available on board your airplane. You can stay in the loop and sign up to receive updated on their website.
