#60 Is This the Amazon Prime of Airline Tickets?

Rama Poola is here pitching his airline ticket business, SkyHi, where customers pay a monthly fee to access tickets on the cheap. But the investors are worried that it sounds a lot like MoviePass, a company that offered a subscription for unlimited movie tickets — and ran into a world of problems. Can Rama convince them that his model won’t break the bank? 

Today's investors are Alexandra Stanton, Sheel Mohnot, Charles Hudson, and Phil Nadel.
