Hi!
I'm relocating from San Francisco to Tampa for work, and am bringing along my cats!
The airlines require me to purchase 2 tickets, and also require an actual passenger to sit in the seat I purchase (airline rules, for some odd reason!)
I'm leaving late May-early June, and I will gladly purchase your ticket, and make your return date whatever you'd like. You don't need to care for my pets, just simply fly to Tampa, and you're set to do as you please!
Contact me ASAP if you're interested...thanks!

No, not too good to be true...I simply need a passenger to go along on the flight, or else I will have to make two SEPERATE flights a day or two apart. Would be much easier for me and good for someone else to fly...
I am definitely leaving the end of May...if interested, let me know.

I believe, that I believe her.
I used to be a member of a courier company(although I never had time to take up any of their offers), and they ships things from the US to anywhere it the world. They would purchase tickets and use the cargo space below, then someone like me would pay a miniscule amount to sit in that seat. The good news is, I can go to Thailand or Korea or the Philippines for $100-$400 RT and negotiate my return date. The bad news was, I could only bring carry on luggage as the luggage space below was taken up by the shipping companies. However, sometimes they only used one of two available luggage slots allowing you to check in something else other than your carry on luggage.

Why do they do this? Say for example that you or I want to send something to the Korea. Rather than send it through snail mail and have it arrive months later, you can use these shipping companies that purchase bulk seats solely to use the cargo space beneath (and put you in the seat). This allows for a much faster delivery the sent package as it is flown out the next plane.

What companies do this? Global Courier and Courier.org

Donna, you might want to look at these companies first. They may have cheaper options for you- Fly Pets, Animal Land, PetTransporter.com.

Good luck (that is, if this isn't too good to be true :P !
