WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — One airline is giving you a chance to sit next to the person of your dreams instead of the screaming kid.

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is giving its passengers the opportunity to choose their seatmates on the flight through social media.

The airline is offering, via its “Meet and Seat” program, the opportunity to connect with other passengers on your flight through Facebook and LinkedIn. In the “first of its kind” program — according to the airline’s website — passengers can enter their information on the social networking sites and share their interests with others before boarding their flight. The program offers passengers the chance to see who will be on their flight.

The airline plans to increase use of the program on several international flights to and from Amsterdam in the near future.
