Bryan Chaffin is joined by Jeff Butts and Andrew Orr to chat about Skyhour app’s new ability to gift air travel by the hour. They also look at VW’s plans for an iPad-controlled VW Bus.
Check out the Skyhour app, an innovative way to gift air travel—by the hour. And it works with more than 350 airlines. Every hour costs $60, and you can send your gift via the app itself, email, SMS, or even in person. The giftee then books the flight through their own copy of the Skyhour app. Seriously, that’s just crazy cool. It lets your recipient decide where they want to fly, when, and on what airlines. In an age of security-related hassles when it comes to buying flights for someone else, this seems pretty darned clever. JetBlue has apparently taken an investment stake in the company, too, suggesting Skyhour has legs. Or wings, or something.
