The old Airhitch system came to mind today. I haven’t thought of it in several years probably. The website is gone. I don’t see Air-hitch online anymore either. I googled it and found this.
I had many heated exchanges with Mr. Segalbaum right here on the Eurotrip forums back in the olden days. (like late ’90s). His contrarian style (perhaps contrarian is too kind?) did not win me over. Airhitch was an idea that had long expired it’s useful shelf life. Mr. Segalbaum’s representation of it did not garner him many fans.
I thought maybe Flightfox would replace Airhitch as the go-to method for the cheapest transatlantic flights. However, Flightfox is currently struggling.
