Uber for private jets couldn’t get off the ground, even after several attempts. The Jay-Z and Ashton Kutcher backed startup, which promised a network of on-demand jets for a jet-setting clientele, experienced layoffs followed by a shutdown back in 2013, and abruptly did the same this week, ostensibly for good.
It doesn’t mean the idea of uber for flights is dead–other private services offer similar annual-package-based memberships that offer a certain number of flights for a certain fee. OneGo is one such company trying a less elite version of the same thing.
