Recently I got to experience Semi Private flying with the JetsuiteX service, a division of Jetsuite which offers private charter flights. eclektech & I were treating his parents to an anniversary getaway in Burbank & Las Vegas. To get from Burbank to Las Vegas we booked $79 one-way flights on JetSuiteX.
The JetSuiteX service currently offers semi private flights from and between select destinations in CA and Las Vegas. It has a code share agreement with JetBlue, which is also an investor. Travelers on JetsuiteX can also earn JetBlue points when using their service. Flights for JetsuiteX can also be booked on the JetBlue website in addition to their own website www.jetsuitex.com.
Recently Qatar Airlines also invested in the parent company Jetsuite and as a result the JetSuiteX service is expected to expand with new short-haul flight options in Texas where its headquarters is now based.
Check in for our flight was a breeze. We took an Uber from our hotel to the JetsuiteX hangar at the Burbank airport. Each passenger is allowed two checked bags totaling up to 50lbs in combined weight at no additional cost. There were no security hassles.
After checking in we were able to relax in the hangar. There are two small lounges in the Burbank hangar offering coffee, water, and snacks. There was also a foosball table and cornhole available.
I was slightly disappointed that the jet used for our flight was not an official “JetsuiteX” jet as shown on their website. Nonetheless the service was excellent. We all had plenty of legroom and enjoyed the free drinks and snacks that were offered.
Once we landed in Las Vegas. We were given our checked bags plane side and then escorted from the tarmac to the front of the hangar. A very quick and easy process. I’m hoping that service continues to expand and look forward to using their hassle free flight service again.
