    Uber Platinum is not just for the 1%. I have Platinum status and I am FAAR away from the 1%. I don't even have a car, or home. And I live with a roommate

                          Only $200? Not bad. Definitely worth it. Easy write off too.

                            Uber can't even turn a profit with road vehicles. I doubt they will with aircraft.

                                      I fucking hate electric cars/motorcycles. I want flying cars for mobility not luxury in 2025 (and I especially wanted platforms like uBer/Lyft to capitalize and lead within that domestication) but beggars can't be choosers, I'm broke af 🤣 and time will tell;

                                              exactly. I paid $230 round-trip from Brooklyn to Amityville, without worrying about the fact that - helicopters crash about 35 percent more often than your average aircraft (National Transportation Safety Board).

                                            Let's see #225 for an 8 min flight works out to $1600 / Hr for a chopper Guess the 1 Presenters time is worth that. Is that for 1 person or a full load of 6 passengers.
