The theory is that you fly for practically nothingwhile carrying the paperwork for a package on board which you never see. Hand off the paperwork @ destination, voila, nearly free 'one-way' ticket.

This is the site adverting this idea most strongly. The twenty bucks to join seems more than reasonable if theyare on the up and up, but I want to hear from someone else who's tried her first...


anyone?

Like Jake was saying, I've heard numerous people talk about being an air courier but never actually heard of anything following through.

I was checking out the membership prices and if you are serious its only $20 for a year membership. Atleast if it turns out to be a scam you've only lost $20 and you can spread the word its a hoax.

You could talk to WorldWideMike about it, he works for an airline & may have the insider on these kind of companies.
