With airlines such as Southwest and JetBlue continuing to reinvent air travel, it’s no surprise that — in this day and age of airlines charging for in-flight meals — people are starting to poke fun at low-frills travel options. SkyHigh Airlines is a clever send up of a business trying to seek “excellence through compromise.”
As a business person, you’re used to biting, scratching and clawing your way to what you want. Why should getting a seat on the airplane be any different? Introducing SkyHigh Airlines Challenge Seating. SkyHigh has created a seat-selection grudge match that will take your self-confidence from taxi to takeoff in just 100 feet! Equipped with only a chest protector, a length of rope and a mouth guard, you’ll be set loose out of our padded holding pen and down the jetway to get the seat you want… no deserve.
