Networking in the air

I'm not sure how I feel about Planely, a service I recently read about on TechCrunch that lets people enter their flights into Facebook to find out who else will be on their plane or at their departure or arrival airport at the same time. It sounds like a great application for meetings on one hand (and the item says Le Web 2010 used it) because it could enable more connections and conversations from the (literal) get-go. On the other hand, I have some hesitation around using anything that announces I'm not home, so c'mon down, robbers and thieves.

I don't know -- do you think something like this could catch on?
