"First came social seating, enabling travelers to sit next to people with similar interests in flight."

"And then came the infamous Miss Travel, which had the travel industry asking 'Dating site or prostitution?' And now, we’ve discovered MeetAtTheAirport.com. Which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like."

I can't see how this will work. You meet at a crowded dirty place for a few minutes and then fly off to different places?

Didn't this get a certain Senator from Idaho in trouble.

Now they just need to start installing those rent-by-the-hour sleeping boxes like they do in Japan and Europe and everything will be in place for a truly memorable experience.

This assumes people really want to meet somebody they don't know and may never see again just because they're traveling.

Millennials must be extremely insecure.

Should be "Meat At The Airport"!

The Miss Travel article link went 404. The site itself, one can infer that conclusion.

Meet at the place of arrival!

You're going somewhere, often stuck there alone, would love to have someone to share dinner with.

All the usual prying eyes are gone, and you can experiment.

Also if one is arriving in a strange place while the other is returning home, you can get a ride into town, have a conversation, and if you don't like each other enough, that's the end of it, and everybody wins.

Maybe you'll end up not needing that hotel.

That last clause could have more than one meaning. (Shudder...)

Right. There's that too. That's why I never went in for this sort of adventure myself.

Also, I'm afraid of being bored.

My solution is stay home.

Motels are the same everywhere in the world.
