It's basically a first class flight on wheels! Check out the Vonlane luxury commuter bus soon to be in operation from San Antonio to Houston. On board you'll be treated to 22 first class seats, DirectTV, XM satellite radio, free high speed WI-FI, and reliable internet. You'll also find that those are leather reclining seats, and the bathroom is as big as one you'd find in some hotel rooms.

As a passenger, everything you need is at your fingertips. They provide neck pillows, sleeping masks, and you can even get a shoe shine during your trip.

Now, let's compare this to the cost of a first class flight. With Volane, a trip from Dallas to Houston will run you $178. Booking a flight to the same destination 2 weeks in advance would still cost about $250.

Volane says the trip takes about 3 hours and 45 minutes. The company says they are not a "bus company", they are a motor coach company with an emphasis on customer service.
