Cool idea, poor execution
I got a text message as I was walking into work this morning saying that they were cancelling my flight that was scheduled for 8PM this evening. Their solution was a flight leaving from the other side of LA 5 hours earlier than my original flight. Not helpful at all, left me out to dry, won’t bother again.
UPDATE: decided to give it another shot bc I can’t help myself, the idea is just too cool. Got to the airport, the pilot walks up to me and cancels the flight. I call blackbird, they bumble around and offer a refund. That didn’t change the fact that they ruined my plans completely. Totally unreliable and really awful customer service... they’ll be going under soon.
Awesome idea and if I could see what flights are available out there to choose from, it could add a whole other market to the business model. If I want to go somewhere new for a weekend, I would love to pick out a nearby departure with a destination I’ve never been and would like to explore. I think adding this feature would greatly increase matches and be better for everyone.
First commercial flight out of Martha’s Vineyard was cancelled. Second flight delayed for 3+ hours. Decided to cancel the flight and use Blackbird, and without spending any more money than for my commercial ticket, I was off the ground on time and home before I new it! Can’t wait to use them again. And customer service was fantastic!!
