I was wondering if anybody knew the website or what this thing was called. I was speaking with my old geography teacher today. I told him I wanted to do some travelling to europe.
He was telling me about some place you can talk to. I guess the whole thing is that you don't get to pick the date and they can just give you a 24 hrs notice, they'll call and ask you if you want it and it can be from anywhere, it could be leaving from Toronto, Montreal, etc. I'm quite sure this would be a canadian thing.
I would suggest posting this in the "North America" forum; you're more likely to get the response you're looking for.
Haven't heard of this myself . . .
Sounds like flying courier to me. Search for the term on google, you should be able to find a company looking for couriers.
Another option is Zoom, a budget airline connecting Canada and Europe. Check them out.
There are also some airlines and travelagencies that offer last minute deals on airline tickets. The prices can be a fraction of the real costs. These are most likely charter flights or leftover seats in the jets of the big established airlines. Good luck finding such a deal!
