Rather than leaving their car in an airport parking lot when they travel abroad, FlightCar wants to let holidaymakers rent out their unused vehicles to others while they’re away. It’s been working hard at this project since we covered them last October, but it has now been faced with a lawsuit from the City of San Francisco and the city’s airport. While it’s fair to say that an idea such as this has potential to infringe on other companies’ profit-making, FlightCar insists it is operating within the law and already pays fees to the airport. The startup isn’t giving up, having now launched in Boston, expanding its facilities to those traveling by train or subway, and adding a complimentary concierge service to its roster.
