Jetstar Really Thinks a Quick Trip Can Turn Seatmates into Lovemates
Just in case you haven't walked within a few feet of the greeting card section of your local drugstore, this week is Valentine's Day. Consider this fair warning if you haven't already scrambled to buy chocolates or flowers, but if you don't have a special one just yet, Jetstar has the solution to your problem. "LoveJet"! (cue the cheesy music)
The Australian low-cost carrier has hooked up with Aussie dating site, RSVP, to bring the world some real (multi-)mile-high dating. Last year, we saw KLM try to pair passengers looking for interesting conversation and a possible love connection, but Jetstar is actually planning on making the relationship magic happen.
Twenty-eight uncoupled passengers selected from the dating site will fly from Sydney to the Gold Coast this Thursday for a day of fun and frivolity. The group will then have lunch on the 78th floor observation deck of the Gold Coast's Q1 Building. Hopefully, the 60-minute flight and the stunning views will prove romantic enough to turn seatmates into lovemates by the same-day return flight. That's a bit of a short time to fall in love, but as they say, traveling with someone always brings out the true colors.
