Channeling the success of Netflix, the Beacon service is an air travel subscription tailored to frequent fliers. For a cool $2,000 a month, people travel as much as they like along the New York to Boston route. In committing to such an unheard of membership, they put their trust in the Beacon service to get them where they need to go, even if its a last minute request.

The Beacon service addresses a sentiment cofounder Wade Eyerly articulates, "Airlines are 97% perfect, but when they screw up, you feel it deeply." Focused on building relationships, the Beacon service aims to work much differently than current airline and travel agent platforms. It will also partner with individual operators to get the job done without the headache of taking care of its own fleet.
