    Am I the only one who thinks this is super unsafe? I mean maybe if they run background checks or something

    WTH, i’ll sign up. Better than the drugs I was transporting before. [warning, i may be pimping out my referral link once i try out the service.]

    Back in the day you used to be able to fly for free as an air courier for a number of quite reliable companies. They used your baggage allowance (and extra bags — I think I once had 30 with me) to transport documents and other overnight packages, and you would carry a manifest and meet their receiver at customs so he could take over the bags and clear them (your job was done).

    Quite safe and I made many free flights this way, including one on the Concorde.

    This doesn’t sound quite as safe.

      Yes, I did the courier option several times before 9/11, which basically killed it as an option. I did the JFK-MEX flight with World Courier, even got SkyPesos for it! Then, after I turned over the baggage to World’s rep, I’d take the overnight bus to Acapulco to start my vacation! Cheap vacation, back then!

    What could possibly go wrong? With all due respect, anyone who does this is a fool.

    Wouldn’t it be easier just to sign up to be an air courier? Getting paid for transportation and the miles?

    Why is it unsafe ? Meet in a public place like a food court. I like the concept and just signed up.
