In the good old days, I was able to purchase "open air" tickets where, for a set price, I could get 10 open tickets to any destination within a specific geographical region (e.g., Europe) with an advanced call to reserve. It's sort of like a punch card I guess allowing me to hop on a plane to an unplanned destination on an unplanned date. I was wondering if any airline still has that. I'd like to travel to multiple places (which I have not selected) but don't want to be bound by a set schedule (i.e. leaving and return on X date). Thanks a mucho!

AC offers many different types of electronic "Flight Passes" in various markets/regions. You can choose either 10 one way trips (including connecting flights) within the area of coverage, or unlimited travel for either 3 or 6 months. According to the rules, they're only available to Canadian residents and you must be an AC Aeroplan frequent flyer member. Details here:

You'll probably have to paste that URL into the browswer due to the "https".

You could indeed use Air Passes... There are multiple of these around. i.e. in Northern Scandanavia (Wideroe), Latin America (LATAM) etc...
Furthermore some airlines, like Alitalia, offer a "coupon booklet" which one coupon is one domestic flight of your choice...

Other than that, there are regular fares that allow at least open returns, but practically there are of no use anymore.
