“Scam” JetSmarter” hit by another lawsuit seeking at least $2.2 million in damages

A “senior” couple say they were “scammed” by JetSmarter for $30,000 weeks before the company started cutting back on its scheduled flights with the free seats they were expecting

 

With each lawsuit – this is at least the seventh Private Jet Card Comparisons has tracked – the stories about JetSmarter’s sales tactics get more troubling. Even as management was pivoting its model of paid annual memberships in return for the ability to book free seats on scheduled private jet shuttles, its sales team was continuing “high-pressure” tactics trying to push even more expensive memberships while telling the media that it was focusing on more accessible pricing.

One element of JetSmarter contracts that has been hanging over the heads of plaintiffs and others contemplating legal action against by-the-seat private jet membership club JetSmarter has been a clause in its contracts designed to prevent members from taking the company to court. In the case of Derek Milosavljevic vs. Jet Smarter playing out in the Superior Court of the State of California, JetSmarter has apparently lost that battle.

The Fort Lauderdale-based company, which sells private jet flights on a by-the-seat basis, was hit yesterday with another lawsuit, this time by a member who was sold a $97,500 upgrade to a Sophisticated Membership just days before the company announced it was opening flights to non-members.

As a lawsuit seeking at least $2 million against it continues with a hearing scheduled for early December in Los Angeles, JetSmarter has been hit with two more lawsuits. The first one was filed October 16th in The United States District Court For The Eastern District Of Wisconsin, at least the fourth since August, and accuses the Fort Lauderdale-based sharing economy private jet service with breach of contract, breach of good faith and fraudulent representation. The lawsuit seeks at least $75,000 in compensatory damages, undisclosed punitive damages, attorney’s fees and other relief that the court deems proper. In another lawsuit, filed today in the Southern District of Florida, Illinois-based Joann Bachewicz is seeking at least $300,0000 after she paid $87,500 for a three-year membership JetSmarter represented as having a $150,000 value.
