After the June merger of JetSmarter and XOJET, the new FlyXO.com has been tweaking the jet sharing part of its offering
Vista Global is continuing to put its stamp on its XO brand since merging JetSmarter and XOJET at the beginning of the summer. First, it added JetSmarter’s jet sharing functionality to the former XOJET dynamic jet card pricing memberships.
The move meant that XO Select and Signature memberships could all of a sudden share seats on flights they had booked with their deposits. Elite members who get fixed rates can’t share seats on those flights, but otherwise, get all the perks a JetSmarter member received.
XO also tweaked Select Access and non-member options. In essence, there are two versions of Select Access. But the big news is non-members can now book seats on at least some empty legs.
The former C-Suite executive with XOJET recently left as acquirer Vista Global merged it with the former JetSmarter
Business aviation veteran Gregg Slow has joined PrivateFly’s senior leadership team to head the U.S. division of the company, which operates from a U.S. headquarters in Boston and a sales office in Fort Lauderdale, with further sales teams based across the country.
The U.S. now accounts for half of PrivateFly’s global flight sales for the U.K.-based provider, according to the press announcement.
Slow brings 19 years of business aviation experience to the newly created role, most recently from his seven-year tenure at XOJET where, as chief client officer, he built the commercial client-facing offering and assisted in the company’s acquisition by Vista Global. Earlier this summer the VistaJet parent merged XOJET and JetSmarter to form XO.
The moves follow the merger of XOJET and JetSmarter earlier this summer
Two former top executives are exiting XO, formerly XOJET, following its recent combination with JetSmarter. Gregg Slow, president of enterprise at XO has left while James Henderson, president of commercial operations will join Exclusive Resorts LLC as CEO in October it was announced last week.

(Editor’s Note: Clyde & Co. says it did not issue a statement originally attributed to it in this article. In fact, the statement was provided by Alyssum, a client that Clyde & Co. represents in this litigation.)
Online private jet charter broker Fly Victor, its parent company, Alyssum, and CEO Clive Jackson are hitting back at Don’t Look Media, seeking dismissal of its $30 million RICO lawsuit filed in June over the website URL www.privatejet.com.
“Don’t Look Media and (its attorney) Farrow Law are shamelessly exploiting the judicial system to extort monies from Alyssum. This is a despicable act carried out by those that not only wish to damage our company but whose actions can only bring disrepute on the entire private industry,” Jackson told Private Jet Card Comparisons.
