Planely is a new service that tries to make your flights a better social experience by showing you who is on your next plane.

Cool idea. If only it didn’t rely on Facebook. (le sigh)

(thanks sis)

  1. Not sure it does need Facebook. I think that Connect button is just for an easy signup. You can register manually like I did if you want

  2. I just tried it since I am taking a flight next week, the dumb thing didn’t work. The flight options drop down menu never populated with any data. Good idea, pore execution!

  3. Thanks for the mention @swissmiss and glad you like our mission to help make flying exciting again.

    @ben is right when he says Facebook Connect is just there to make it easier for people to sign-up. We’re not playing any funny games with your data or posting into your News Feed and never will. Not our game.

    @jon Sorry it didn’t work for you. I’m afraid we only support the more modern browsers at the moment and it might have been you were using IE 6 or 7 perhaps? If you don’t mind I would love to see what the issue was – nick[at]planely[dot]com

  4. Sitting on the plane with a book or magazine is just about the last enforced “quiet” time left in this world. Do people really need to CONSTANTLY be networking? yikes!
