With seemingly fewer flights, JetSmarter is launching another special offer to attract new members
JetSmarter is offering new registrants on the JetSmarter.com the option to book two private flights at JetSmarter member prices, which will be valid for 14 days. According to a press release, this offering will allow new travelers the opportunity to experience JetSmarter’s service and allow them to save an average of $750 on their first two flights with JetSmarter. Travelers will be able to choose from any of the flights posted in the app, create a flight along JetSmarter’s existing routes or charter a flight to any destination on the globe and share it with other fliers, or keep the flight completely private. Travelers can book either via JetSmarter’s website or through the mobile app.
An in-depth look beyond JetSmarter’s legal woes, layoffs and last week’s safety incident to its actual flight schedules and how much you will end up paying for both single seats and to start shared flights
With a new lawsuit seeking at least $890,000 filed against JetSmarter last week in New Jersey and perhaps a dozen more customers contemplating legal action, Private Jet Card Comparisons has been told by multiple sources that as many as 40 people were laid off from the company over the past several weeks. In March 2017, its CEO Sergey Petrossov told the Miami Herald it had 260 employees.
The by-the-seat private jet membership program is being sued for not delivering on its promises of free flights
JetSmarter appears to be headed for stormy skies once again. On Friday a couple from New Jersey filed a lawsuit against the Ft. Lauderdale-based seller of seats on scheduled private jet flights. The complaint by Kathleen and Ronald Jackson alleges they were misled by a salesperson and after spending $23,000 with the promise of free private jet flights, they learned that for the flights they wanted there were, in fact, additional charges – some more than $5,000 per seat, per flight.
The promotion was supposed to end yesterday but has been extended through the end of the month.
JetSmarter gave its members a few more days to get irked with the by-the-seat private jet travel club as it extended its promotion enabling non-members to book at member rates for the rest of the month. Last month JetSmarter announced for the first time non-members could buy seats on its scheduled private jet flights as well as start shared shuttles.
