A friend of mine once booked a BA flight from LHR-NRT using a "courier" ticket. She paid 400 GBP rather than the average 700 GBP. All she had to do was pick up some "paperwork" at LHR and was met at the gate at NRT to deliver them.
A friend of mine once did the same on VS
. Quite why he bothered I will never know because he's probably the highest paid person I know/will ever know, but for some reason he seemed to prefer suffering the reduced baggage allowance and the hassle of collecting his "cargo" at LHR
to paying the standard fare! And he moaned like hell about his baggage allowance on his return journey as he couldn't take all of his souvenirs with him (yes, I was with him in Tokyo but had personally flown BA
on a RTW ticket). But hey, who am I to question?!
I'm sure that courier flights suit some people though, I know I'd do it if it meant getting a discounted ticket!
