The holidays are all about gathering with loved ones to spend time with one another, but at Christmastime many people find themselves alone in the airport. This year, KLM decided to put an end to feelings of loneliness in its Amsterdam Airport Schiphol by hosting the 'Bonding Buffet.'

A large round table was set up to serve dinner to a group of people, but it was rigged in a way that suspended it all high up in the air. As more people filled the seats around the table, the weight-activated buffet began to gradually drop to a comfortable height for eating. With all of the seats filled, dinner was served to a table of strangers, who were able to bond with one another over a comforting meal.

With the Bonding Buffer, KLM reports that it helped to bring together 60 people of 20 different nationalities to share Christmas meals.
