A petition to vacate the proposed class arbitration awards in the case of JetSmarter could lead to more filings, say several lawyers

“It’s never over till it’s over,” said the late Yankees’ Hall of Fame catcher Yogi Berra. And, the city so nice they named it twice is at the center of one former JetSmarter member’s effort to vacate the current class action arbitration against the jet-sharing company that is currently moving through the system in Florida.

The cost of a private jet varies widely, from owning an entire aircraft to chartering on-demand. But what are the options?

Fractional ownership and leases, as well as jet cards, have become a popular middle ground, providing convenience and consistent experience in many ways offering the best of either full ownership or on-demand charter.

However, figuring out the right solution isn’t necessarily based only on flight hours. Current U.S. tax benefits of full or fractional ownership can tilt the scale in their favor, particularly if most of your flying is for business.
