Horny And Stuck On A Plane? There’s An App For That

“Forget about boring old dating apps like Hinge and Tinder that limit you to sexual encounters at sea level. It’s all about Wingman, a new app that promises to connect you “with attractive people on your flight, all before you touch down.”

It’s still in its beta stage, but its creator, 24-year-old Gabe Whaley, says development is well underway, the Daily Beast reports. It works much like Tinder: users scroll through photos of potential “travel buddies” aboard their flight and swipe right or left to indicate “yes” or “no.” The idea is that most planes nowadays offer in-flight wi-fi, but the app will also be bluetooth-ready. In the meantime, you can sign up for notifications to stay informed about Wingman’s process.

This could actually be a good idea in theory, but we do sense some problems.”* John Iadarola, Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?!, and TYT Comedy) and Cara Santa Maria (co-host and producer, TakePart Live) break it down on The Young Turks.

  1. As a flight attendant, I think the “suggested” idea for the purpose of the app…. is shear genius! You know how handy that would come in for us hotel warriors on “lay”-overs! Once again TYT: you’re always lookin’ out for me! As they say in New Orleans: “‘preciate ya!”
