A flight that goes all the way
A private American airline company is offering passengers a special packaged flight that could get them in the Mile High Club. Flamingo Air has launched the ‘Flight of Fancy’ taking couples on an hour flight which includes a double bed, a bottle of champagne, and “one very discreet pilot”.
Why it matters
Some would say that joining the Mile High Club loses all of its fun and appeal if it’s condoned. Despite this, this airline is catering to a curious audience that may well consider taking up the offer and eventually increase sales. Are there other categories where businesses should indulge their potential customers – no matter how naughty the need?
Hesitating between San Francisco or Istanbul for your next holiday? Let the Getgoing.com website decide for you! Simply enter both those destinations and the site will book you on one of those two options. You will only be told where you’re going once the purchase is processed. This is not only a great website for indecisive travellers; when you let the site decide, you can get almost 40% off your travel.
With some flights travelling with nearly 30% of empty seats, the site can offer such an enticing discount because it helps airlines fill them. There’s also a hotel booking website that uses the same system: if you book the same day, you’ll have additional discounts by sleeping in a room that would normally have been empty that night.
