Fly Like You’re Rich With Social Flights (And Private Planes) | Fast Company
Have you ever wanted to take a quick weekend trip to some out-of-the-way place, but canned the idea because there was no practical way to get there without having to make a connection or two followed by a long drive—all of which would have eaten up half your weekend? Social Flights, a new company that is using the social web to fill up private planes, is betting you’re not the only one.
The founders of Social Flights believe that, if you had the chance to grab a seat on a private plane that would fly point-to-point, as the wealthy are able to do today, and the cost of your seat was comparable to what you’d pay to fly comercial, you’d grab it.
The idea behind Social Flights makes sense. The social web gives people the ability to self-organize. Why not allow them to self-organize into groups of people that want to fly to the same place at the same time?
