Flying is where a private hire taxi picks up punters off the street without being pr-booked, highly illegal.... When I worked as a cabbie in the mid/late 80's/early 90/s I would fly on a Friday/Saturday/Wednesday nights outside the Astoria, New york New york etc nightclubs (there'd be dozens of PH cabs there flying) I made so much money flying it was daft. We'd ignore the board operator shouting over the radio for "cars Bulwell/Rise Park/Hucknall etc." He'd get irate & try & order us to take radio jobs. We'd only take the Bulwell/Hucknall etc jobs if our flying jobs were dropping off that way. Don't think any PH cabby fly's nowadays as the authority's have clamped down on PH's flying. I never got caught & don't know of anyone else who did back then..
