This has been my consistent experience as well.

I always put "Ik heb zweetvoeten" (I have smelly feet) in the notes section, but so far this has never stopped the seat next to me from being occupied.

3 years later and yes... I am the only one using it also - it seems.
a fault with my settings? - Or have they disabled it????

IIRC when it first started there was a smattering of users on my seatmap

I think its safe to conclude that this was just a gimmick which did not become a success.

Does anyone know if this is still a thing? The webpage is still there: https://www.klm.com/travel/gb_en/pre...t_and_seat.htm and when asked on twitter they say it's still alive...

I suppose it was a dummy answer from a bot which just relayed the info from the website.

It seems to exist, but I haven't seen a single icon in all my flights with KLM... so either nobody else ever uses it, or it doesn't actually work.

I used it as well with my linkedin profile without any affect except for once. I met another FF plat. but before we could get comfortable talking, we were sent back to our seats otherwise we would be 'conspiring'. Another one of those American viruses caught.

Hi ManMan. did you meet some people on flights when the program began though? the reason I ask is because I'm a journalist writing about the program and I am looking for people's stories about it.

I wouldn't use it, mainly because I dislike sitting next to anyone........especially if Mrs. Tezzer is travelling with me.

Could be a decent April Fool's joke for 2019 if KLM re-posts the old press release.

I really like this! But you need to have written it in English, not Dutch. You could also write "I am an uncontrollable farter", but that might get you refused boarding. Another one to try is "I am an inveterate talker"!
