“4,400 people search for ‘met on a plane’ in Google globally every month. This was enough data to for me to realise that I am not alone and there was no way until now for anyone to connect with someone they met on a plane without knowing their name,” said Will Scully-Power, founder of www.WeMetOnAPlane.com.
