You should get paid to park your car at the airport – Sep 1, 2015
FlightCar leverages idle vehicles in the long-term lots, and it’s a lifeline for frequent flyers.
It’s funny how we fall into bad patterns. Consider this scenario. You’re going on a weeklong business trip, so you drive to the airport, leave your car in long-term parking, and come back to find it waiting patiently but with $100 due to the cashier.
