Company Offers Unlimited Flights For a Monthly Fee

The bottom line comes down to this – would you use it enough to offset the cost?

A new company called OneGo has introduced an interesting concept to air travel in which a customer, in their words, would enjoy unlimited direct flying on major airline carriers such as American, Delta, United and Virgin America, for just one monthly cost.

The deal is aimed primarily – some would say exclusively – at business travelers and frequent fliers who could afford to pay the $1,500 monthly cost and make it work.

That $1,500 fee includes Gogo Wi-Fi, TSA PreCheck and one free checked bag on every flight. For another $1,000 a month, a traveler can sign up for last-minute bookings, and for another $750 a month can make unlimited changes to reservations.

There is also a $750 sign-up fee.

Good idea? On paper, it sure sounds like it. But is it a sustainable business model?


Right now, the route network is small and based in only five west coast states. The company says on its website that "routes in additional regions throughout the U.S. will be available soon," but doesn’t say if customers will be able to choose flights that cover multiple regions, say New York to Seattle.

You also may run into a logistical problem in that flights must be booked at least seven days ahead of time, but you cannot book and hold reservations for more than four flights in a 30-day period.

With flights, on average, running between $300 and $400 per roundtrip ticket, a passenger would have to make four to five flights a month to make it work.
