Flight With a Beauty Queen Inspires Business Plan for BU Grad

College students are among the customers of a new online dating service called AirTroductions, which matches up customers with compatible seating partners during air travel. The business's founder, a Boston University College of Communications graduate, tells the Daily Free Press he got the idea after sitting next to Miss Texas in 2002. "The flight felt like it took a lot less time," the founder says. "I tried to figure out why." Maybe because they were so wonderfully compatible? Or maybe because she was a beauty queen.
