Virgin Atlantic has teamed up with Taxi2 (and it’s oddly-registered Tongan website taxi.to) to help passengers share cabs to their destination. This to me is a great idea, but they haven’t taken this far enough. Hopefully this is just the first step.
I remember back in my college days flying into Washington/Dulles airport dreading the long Washington Flyer bus ride into town. Sure, I wanted to take a cab, but those were expensive, so I always wanted to find someone to share. Fortunately, I flew Western Pacific once or twice and those guys didn’t care what you did onboard. (Heck, the flight attendants all wore different t-shirts, so you couldn’t even tell who worked for the airline.)
On one flight, they made an announcement on my behalf asking if anybody was going to GW and wanted to share a cab. Sure enough, there was a very cute girl who lived in the same building as I. Excellent. You would think this service would have been moved online about 5 minutes after the internet began, but that apparently wasn’t the case.
There are no posts. Why not be the first to have your say?

Back in the early days, one flight number would usually have one airplane the whole way. Heck, it was more likely for the airplane to stay the same than the actual airline!
Don’t get too excited. I didn’t actually get to fly on one. But I did get invited to come take a tour of a 787 while it was on the ground here in Long Beach as part of a tour around North America. Of course, I was thrilled to do it.
As I mentioned yesterday, the big buzz at the APEX expo last week was around wireless entertainment.
