In an age where airlines are scrambling to find any way to make an additional buck, Virgin America has found a way to make their passengers’ in-flight experience, perhaps, a bit more fun.

The airline has unveiled a new entertainment system that helps single passengers flirt by sending a drink to someone who’s caught their attention.

According to Click Orlando, passengers use Virgin’s entertainment system to brose the menu, pinpoint their designated hottie using a digital seat map, and have a drink, snack or meal sent over. You can also communicate with your admirer through the seat-to-seat texting system.

Virgin launched the service this week to mark the start of its Los Angeles to Las Vegas route, but it’s available on all of its U.S. flights, Click Orlando reports.

Founder Sir Richard Branson said the chances of deplaning with a plus-one are at least 50 percent, Click Orlando reports.
