Now Boarding, The Ultimate Uber Ride


Ladies and gents, the captain has turned on the Fasten Seat Belt sign. So sit down, buckle up and get ready for the Ultimate Uber ride! We’re teaming up with our friends at Virgin America to celebrate their upcoming launch at Dallas Love Field, the closest airport to Downtown Dallas.

To kick-off the mile high festivities, Virgin Group founder, Sir Richard Branson, is hosting a party as big as Texas starting with the “Downtown Express” flight – an inaugural Virgin America flight into Dallas Love Field that will depart from DFW Airport the morning of 10/13. The flight will be the ultimate VIP party complete with a live acoustic performance by Grammy award-winning country music star, Kacey Musgraves – 35,000 feet in the air!

Don’t worry, the VIP list has some spots reserved for lucky loyal Uber users. Those who #ShareTheLove will be entered in to win a trip to Dallas, seats on the ultimate Uber flight, tickets to the VIP Launch Party (on 10/13) & an overnight stay in Dallas from our friends at HotelTonight.
