Recap: Southwest Donation, Lyft Scooters & More

 

  • Jetblue Strongly Hints At London Service, Citing “obscene” Fares by Live and Let’s Fly. Keep in kind when talking about obscene fares, he’s talking about last minute premium cabin fares.
  • Lyft launches a scooter service. Uber is close behind by CNN. These scooters are a great way to get around, but they are such a huge problem for pedestrians and drivers. Plus they end up scattered all over the place. Only a matter of time before cities start regulating against them. I really hate the Uber/Lyft model of just dumping something like this and then worrying about the issues later once you already have a market.

Just need to create unattended vehicle / littering laws. Lock it up or the city takes it and fines them.

And put the cost on the last renter. Then they’re incentivized to put them back in an appropriate place.

Wonder how Lyft and Uber are going to wrap things up when the money runs out or will the VC keep throwing good money after bad for another decade.

Solyndra took a billion and stayed going for 7 years,Jawbone got 17 years out of just under a billion, Theranos’s ~1.4bln got 15 years despite being a fraud.

Uber has taken over 22bln since 2009, many times the biggest failures without any convincing sign of sustainability. ~2 years left of subsidized rides.
