twigs of mistletoe

Polish carrier LOT is playing Cupid this holiday season by hanging sprigs of mistletoe on cabin ceilings to create a bit of “love in the air”.

LOT has made the job of in-flight flirting easier, by strategically placing mistletoe twigs onboard — what they dub the “highest place in the world” — to break the ice.

Traveling with your loved one over the holidays? Snag a quick snog and join the mile-high kissing club.

Though the tradition of kissing under the mistletoe is a relatively new concept for Poles, the cheeky stunt caters to their international flyers — romantic and otherwise.

Lore has it that the mistletoe also has the power to mend longstanding feuds and disputes and strengthen friendships.

It’s not the first time airlines have tried to spark a little romance onboard and turn flights into potential meeting places for singletons.

Virgin America’s in-flight entertainment system allows passengers to order a drink for their onboard crush.

The airline’s KissaLOT will run through January 6, 2015.
