At one time (i.e. 1st half of 20th century ?), it was common for people flying between places without regular comercial airline service to hitch rides with either cargo or military planes. Scientists going to Antartica still do this and reporters needing local transportation in Vietnam when roads were closed did during the war there. (In 'Nam, helicopters were more common though because it was too expensive to build a runway that might get blown up.)
