Ratings and Reviews
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!!
Value prop isn’t that strong
This works for me only because I live within walking distance of one airport and within 15 minutes on the the other side of my Bay Area - LA commute. These are small planes so they take two hours to go each way instead of the hour that your usual commercial jet takes. And given that I have precheck, it’s not like I spend much time getting to major airports early either. All in all, it’s just ok to me.
