Let me ask you. Say I bought a ticket for my daughter to fly from JAN to DEN. I can't afford to go there and fly back to Denver with her. However, she needs someone to hold her hand during takeoff and landing. She's thirteen and doesn't want to fly alone. Can't blame her. I'm an adult and it still scares me.
Would you at all be interested in initiating a program? Maybe call it 'Caring Hands' and open it to Grandmothers? And, Moms too?
So here's how it would work. I'd buy the ticket. You all would have already asked other ticket purchasers on the same flight, "Would you care to be a 'caring hand'?" Now alls we'd have to do is connect two ticketed passengers together.
You'd forward my daughters request to those Grandmothers on her flight that agree to be contacted; And, do so for a nominal broker fee that I would pay. The two of them would receive exchange information from your service, footnoted with all the necessary lawyer stuff about non-responsibility, etc. They'd make contact prior to the flight; And, meet at the gate. Of course since I would pay for my daughter to pre-board they would get to also, a pleasant upgrade.
This is not an uncommon practice. Years ago, traveling was often prepared with meetings prior to boarding. Ships at sea, Airships in the sky, and pioneer wagon trains across The Great Plains often sponsored passenger meetings at their ports of departure(s).
You could do it, make a decent return on the effort; And, I'd get to see my daughter more often than I can currently afford.
Don't know. Just a thought. All The Best and God Bless.
