  1. This OneGo thing is hilarious. I am tempted to buy a subscription and fly every day for a month. Either I get a zillion FF miles or they pull my membership and I dispute the charge on my CC. Or do you have to agree to a year or something?

    I am reminded of the early days of online shopping where pet suppliers were FedExing 42-pound bags of cat litter all over the country for free and allegedly rational people thought it could work out financially.

  2. Customers should be skeptical of any up-front fee for a service to be delivered over a long period of time. “Lifetime” often means the lifetime of the company, not your lifetime.

    If OneGo thinks people will buy these like gym memberships and then stop using the service, they are mistaken.

  3. Reading the FAQ on OneGo starts to clear up some of my questions about it. Unless you book very expensive trips, a lot, 7 or more days out, looks hard to maximize.

    “A PATP is not to be used for mileage runs, commercial package delivery/courier services, or any other usage that would be considered to be outside of the scope of reasonable business and personal travel. ”

    Haha.
