"These are best for solo fliers and those flexible with their time. The number of companies offering courier flights has dwindled, and the deals aren't as good as they once were. In some cases, consolidators can meet or beat courier prices.

Then the company sells the seat at a discount to a passenger willing to give up his or her baggage allotment and fly only with carry-on luggage. The discount depends on routes, time of year and how quickly the cargo needs to arrive." From The LA Times
