But is it a double-decker double-wide?

How, like just exposed to the elements, dangling from a hook by some gristle?

If they deliver livers, make sure they include the onions.

Or fava beans and a nice chianti.

If you deliver a liver what's left?  Arteries and gristle and fat?

Every one of these hospitals already has helicopter transport and a helipad. This is a solution in search of a problem.

A lot of fibrosis and a hypertensive portal vein if mine is an indication, so yep.

Organ delivery seems way down on the list of useful things a drone could do like locate and destroy mines, pollinate crops for increased food production, or HOA violation inspections.

Why not use storks, they've been delivering babies for ages.

I'm guessing this is a cost thing.  Fueling/running a crewed helo versus some schmuck with a RC toy that can handle carrying a cooler full of ice and meat.

They had to have first tested this with a beer run, you just know it.

They're tired of not being paid the $250,000 they charge for each flight so they can recover somewhere between $0 to $12,000.

Expect a less generous checklist for "life continuation" efforts and butchers paramedics  trained in harvesting sweet meat and giblets so they can be immediately loaded into drones to go the highest bidder.

Life flight helicopters will be used to transport the wealthy bidders to meet their new drone delivered organs.

If they didn't already have all that stuff for emergency transport, yes. But they do.  They would have this in addition.

Was the kidney still being used?

As long as they're not collecting livers.

That game was terrifyingly accurate in its portrayal of actual neighborhoods around the valley as reflected in its vaults.

However, despite all the mutant animals, undead ghouls, and nuclear technology, the only thing I had a hard time believing was the fact that the monorail actually connected to the airport. That couldn't possibly happen in real life.

"They delivered the liver" is what you could say if you receive an empty box.

8 heads in duffle bags still okay, though?

Drones can be quicker.  And sometimes helicopters have Rambo in them.  And then what?  Rambo accidentally finds POW's and rescues them and kills the Russian guy pulling the strings.  It's all good but the Human Kidney - terrible super hero with a completely pointless super power, by the way - needed to quickly get across the desert.

How dare people try and lower the cost of transport

Can I get some gizzards?  me loves gizzards!

hearts, livers, and lungs are transplanted <10 hours cold time. Teams recover and travel with organs

Kidneys up to 40 hours plus. They go on pumps and sit around in commercial aircraft hangers.

Plus every helicopter trip runs the risk of crashing and taking out the crew.

You need a livery driver for that service, subby.
