Tired of striking out at a singles bar? Virgin America offers airline dating service

CLEVELAND - Are you tired of striking out at the singles bar? Then you might want to try your luck at meeting someone aboard a Virgin Airlines flight.

The airline has launched a new service that allows passengers to send a drink to someone on the plane who has caught their eye. It is done through the airlines in-flight entertainment system.

Passengers can pinpoint their designated "hottie" with Virgin's digital seat map, browse the menu and have a drink, snack or meal sent over. You can even follow up with a text through the seat-to-seat messaging system.

The service is available on all of Virgin's U.S. flights. The head of the airline, Sir Richard Branson, says in this video released to introduce the new feature that the chances of deplaning with a date are at least 50 percent.
