Delta’s Sky Access empty-leg membership is being discounted for the Thanksgiving holiday
If you have a flexible schedule, Delta Private Jets‘ Sky Access empty leg program is a deal you will want to consider.
The program is normally sold for $8,500, including a $2,500 initiation fee. However, through Dec. 2, 2019, Skyaccess is on sale for $5,000.
Through Dec. 31, the sale price is $6,000. In other words, you save $2,500.
Goodbye free empty legs and shared flights. JetSmarter 2.0 is a very different but potentially appealing proposition. Will there be a jet card in its future?
JetSmarter’s CEO and founder Sergey Petrossov might debate using the word evolution and certainly feels criticism, including from this reporter, has been unfair. Whether or not the appraisals have been correct is probably one of those YMMV type things. Either way, what’s clear to me is that JetSmarter today and even more so a year from now will be very different than when it took flight in 2013. Back then, you paid a membership fee and then indulged in free seats on shuttles that JetSmarter scheduled. There were also free empty legs where you got the entire plane for as many friends as it could fit. For aspiring private travelers, it was like being a kid in an all you can eat candy store.
Empty legs are the siren’s song of private jet travel. In fact, JetSmarter has built a business based on the temptation of access to free seats on empty leg flights in exchange for an upfront membership fees. Scroll its app and go through dozens of private jet flights ready to whisk you away. Dozens of providers market hundreds of empty leg flights every day on Twitter, Instagram and via email.
