Unlimited Flying for $1500+ a Month on Major US Carriers

By  | 

Mashable has an interesting article this morning about OneGo. The company is offering a monthly subscription service with “unlimited flights” on major US carriers.

Pitched at business travelers, they’re covering 700+ popular routes at 76 major airports across the US and you can subscribe based on region. For example, $1500 a month gets you flights between California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, and Arizona. For $2,950 you have nationwide access.

The Mashable photo of the app, shows someone picking the middle seat, which is exactly how I pictured this working out, so I was intrigued to read in the FAQs that your elite status still counts and you can earn frequent flyer miles. Participating airlines include Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, JetBlue Airways, United Airlines, and Virgin America.

If you can also earn elite qualifying miles I’m tempted to try this as a potential way to almost requalify for AA Executive Platinum in a month. And curious as to how the flights would credit in revenue based loyalty programs.

But if you’re thinking of living in airports while you tour the US, it’s not quite that simple. You must book at least 7 days in advance and can have up to 4 flight segments booked at a time. Which means it’s not truly unlimited right now, you’re limited to 4 flights in a week. They’ll soon be rolling out the option of last minute booking and holding 4 additional flights at a time (8 total) for additional fees.

There’s a one time sign up fee of $495 and the expected perks and drawbacks of being a Founding Flyer if you jump on it now. You’ll have a month to travel and fly before they open it up to regular members which means availability will probably be at its best. But they also only have an iOS app at the moment and won’t be rolling out additional addons until after the first month, and the last minute and 8 flight segment options are probably necessary to make this a worthwhile deal for a leisure traveler/mileage runner.

Very cool concept though and interested to see how it works out!

    So their site says “as long as seats are available in the fare class.” Do you think that means economy or is it more granular (N for example)?

      Hi Michael,

      Currently seats are discounted economy seats. You will sufficient booking options, but just like any booking service, getting the flight you want is all dependent on availability. Feel free to Contact Us on the website with any questions.

    Interesting concept. My coworker lives in FL, but flies to the DC area for work 1-2x a week (totally crazy). This could be a great product for him and a lot of similar business travelers.
