Malaysia Airlines is following hot on the heels of KLM’s recently announced “Meet and Seat” service with the MHbuddy app. MHbuddy uses Facebook to let you share your trip details with your Facebook friends. Users of the app can even see where their friends are sitting on their flight and select a seat next to them.
The MHbuddy app uses Facebook to remind you of any friends you may have who live in the city you’re flying into. The app also shares the travel info of your friends should they be traveling to the same city you are. Should you and your friend be flying on the same flight, the MHbuddy app will notify you of your friend’s seat so that you can sit next to them. Time to turn those Facebook trip “Likes” into travel plans.
