I figure this is an appropriate idea considering I’m exactly three hours away from catching a flight to Las Vegas. It’s a pretty simple one, really. There are lots of last minute travel sites that will send out Emails a few days before a flight if the airline hasn’t booked all the seats. My idea takes that one step
farther further. For airlines that still have standby seats available 3-4 hours before the flight, they have the option of posting them to an ultra last minute travel site. The tickets would be heavily discounted, but users would only have a one-hour timeframe in which to buy them. In many ways it would be like a woot.com for travel – definitely not something you could use if you wanted to guarentee you’d reach a specific destination, but fun if you wanted to take a spur-of-the-moment adventure.
Vegas, baby, yeah! I’ll be gone tomorrow, y’all be sure to enjoy your weekend. I know I will. 🙂
