The app pulls basic, editable info from your Facebook, but incorporates your friends’ feedback (with your approval) on what makes you so darn special.
It also asks for info on how you know your wingman. Maybe you shouldn’t be on this app if you choose the latter.
"Too bad it’s never going to happen, because the seating arrangement didn’t provide for that." Users will be able to create a profile with their picture, personal details and flight number and can indicate whether they are traveling for "business" or "pleasure".
The app will then provide a list of fellow Wingman users on the same flight.
This is one addition to the Mile High Club that should stay firmly grounded – so I'm swiping left on this one.
Wingman is a new dating app that gives friends control of your love life.
Let's say you land the bonus ball and find someone you'd actually like to interact with. In the confined space of a mid-air jet Is it socially acceptable to go over to them and strike up a conversation?
Do you attempt to bond over the dubious in-flight meal that's giving you both stomach pains? Should you play it cool, given that the clock is ticking and the aircraft will soon be making its final descent?
If you want to select dates for a friend, they need to accept your invite to the app first.At best, your plane will have a capacity of about 500 people.How many of those are children, elderly, married, mad, or just not that into you? And by "lucky" I mean you find yourself on a plane with a few other peope who just happen to have downloaded the Wingman app.Your pals see beyond the personal flaws you obsess over. Their selection is a show of affection, the kind of care you’d get from a middle-school friend marching over to your crush to tell them you think they’re cute. Do your friends think you have terrible taste in partners?Are all the matches they pick for you suspiciously different from your usual type?Imagine being forced straight into the friend-zone by sheer turbulence alone, or the seatbelt sign flashing at the most inopportune moment. Then there's the question of whether you can trust your own judgement in the rarefied atmosphere of an aircraft cabin.
