A "Peer-to-peer Airline"

Ed Iacobucci –founder of Citrix- is creating an airline, well, not an airline but a "Per-Seat, On-Demand" jet service called DayJet. Technology columnist Robert X. Cringely calls it “a peer-to-peer airline”.

Using more than 250 small jets (quite small jets), DayJet will be able to provide point-to-point air service particularly to smaller airports that traditional air carriers reach after a hop or two, including a connection at a hub.

Let’s see how this service will impact the experience of business flying.

BTW, this is from the FAQs page in DayJet’s website:

Does the name DayJet mean I can only travel by daylight?

Certainly not. As a regional business traveler our services mean that you will finally get control of your day travel needs with our personalized jet service. Our new services will not be restricted to night or day flying.
