This week, Qantas unveiled its new Boeing Dreamliner with new levels of comfort for travelers like bigger seats and larger windows or fewer greenhouse emissions. Unconsciously (or not), they have also played matchmakers. Since then, the plane’s name “Dreamliner” has an interesting dual meaning.

This accidental attempt to bring back dating to the real live can make a revolution in the world of matchmaking.

This healthy alternative to Snapchat or Tinder for air travelers is called Seat Chat.

The official description on promotional material said: "The feature, which appears on the tiny screen on the back of your headrest, allows you to message anyone around the plane as long as you know their seat number", according to

But in fact, passenger can feel free to send a message to any stranger they liked just passing by.

Seat-to-seat chat was installed on several long distance direct flights airplanes, but nobody has never paid a special attention to this truly on(liner) dating app.

As the new the Boeing is designed for world's first 17 hours non-stop route between Australia and London, this function will be as useful as possible.

The 787-900 is the longest range Dreamliner currently available and will first fly the Melbourne to Los Angeles route from December.  Let’s see how many couples it will help to build.
