Within five minutes of pulling into the lot, attendants had packed his five suitcases into an idling Lincoln Town Car that would drop him off at the airport. Like all cars left with FlightCar, Trushkov’s Sonata would be fully insured for mechanical damage, dents or dings caused by the renter. It also carries $1 million in liability insurance, in case someone drives his car into a building, for example.
It was Trushkov’s first time using FlightCar’s service.
‘‘So far, so good,’’ he said.
The company, which usually has about 80 cars on its lot, recently expanded its services to Logan International Airport in Boston.
Matthew Brelis, a spokesman for MassPort, the public agency that runs Logan, said companies doing business with the airport and its customers are required to have an operating agreement that would encompass financial and insurance requirements and compliance with airport and security regulations.
But FlightCar has no such contract, he said.
‘‘We want to know who’s working at the airport and interacting with our customers,’’ Brelis said. He said Boston airport officials are aware of San Francisco’s lawsuit and are watching the situation.
Zaparde said the lawsuit does not faze him and FlightCar will continue to work on the business. ‘‘It doesn’t help us to start worrying about what the airport thinks and what these guys think,’’ he said.
The service keeps Walt French coming back for more. The 65-year-old Oakland resident is planning to leave his white 2002 Acura RSX at the company’s Burlingame lot —which he has done a half dozen times— while he’s out of town. He said any worries about damage to his car have faded away.
‘‘I really appreciate the savings of $60,’’ French said. ‘‘It comes out of my pocket otherwise.’’
