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?

As the first real glimpse into the transport sector’s impact on climate change, I’m pleased to see that there are some clear leaders making good progress in setting targets and making investments in low-carbon alternatives. The overwhelming conclusion, however, is that the sector as a whole needs to transform and realize the opportunity to make a profound impact on the environment and the business benefits to reducing emissions. Those companies which are already investing in that transformation will be better positioned for a carbon constrained world.
