Can't afford a private jet? We know the feeling. But here's a great idea for business travel (or sheer self-indulgence) – DayJet, the world's first per-seat, on-demand, short-haul jet service. What does this mean exactly? Apparently you can call DayJet, tell them when you need a flight, and they'll fix it up for you. You only ever have to pay for one seat.
Still confused? It may help to know that they operate a Time-Value Pricing system. In other words, you tell them how flexible you can be, time-wise. The more flexible you are, the cheaper your flight will be. If you have to leave at a certain time, you create a narrow travel window – and most likely end up paying more. Unless a planeload of other travelers happen to choose the same time slot. But the best thing is – once you book a seat, you fly, even if you're the only one onboard.
OK, now we've got you all excited, it's time to break the bad news. For now, DayJet only operates out of Florida: Boca Raton, Gainesville, Lakeland, Pensacola and Tallahassee. Within two years, however, the company plans to expand their service network to more than 40 locations across the southeastern United States.
