NEW YORK — Sunny’s Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation, one of the nation’s largest privately-owned luxury-level fleet operators, is making the lives of flight crews more comfortable and convenient with the introduction of their new “Flight Concierge Connection” (FCC). That is, in addition to being picked up and dropped off, their personal errands are completed by their personal concierge: their chauffeur!
Stay-over pilots and flight attendants are generally transferred from the airport to their hotel by van. Sunny’s now delivers beyond this transfer with unprecedented perks: the crews’ own personal concierge and up to 40% off at signature restaurants in Manhattan. The list is deep and delicious and includes the likes of Le Cirque, David Burke Kitchen, Il Cortile, Nirvana, The Capital Grille, Delmonico’s, Sho Shaun Hergatt, Uva, and close to 400 others. The 40% off includes food and all beverages.
Crews are welcome to request their chauffeur/concierge pick up dry-cleaning, specific refreshments or food, or complete any other simple errands that would ordinarily cut into their stay-over schedule. Aside from the new perks, Sunny’s will have bottled water, diet and regular soda, mints, and tissues, all included in the ride. Should the crew care to check in, change clothes and dine in Manhattan, Sunny’s will of course wait and drive them into the city, and back when they’re done. FCC applications are currently available to all airlines starting July 1st.
Sunny’s one-minute late guarantee adds a level of confidence to its service. The guarantee: If even one (1) minute late, the ride is free. Aside from the guarantee, Sunny’s, with about 150 vehicles in New York and Washington, D.C., offers uniformed chauffeurs who are background-checked and drug tested. Vehicles include Lincoln Town Cars, SUVs, vans, stretches, Mercedes-Benz, hybrids, mini-buses and full-size 56-passenger motorcoaches.
