KLM Uses Twitter To Get Flyers The Cheapest Fare

KLM Uses Twitter To Get Flyers The Cheapest Fare

Now Dutch airline KLM is getting involved. Customers can tweet flight requests to @KLMfares (plus the destination and dates) to find the lowest fares. After you send them your tweet, KLM will reply with a link to the latest deals. In a recent article from The Next Web Aaron Lee put the service to the test and found excellent results — he got a reply in one minute. Is this the future of price checking?
