charter operator JetSuite has rebranded its JetSuiteX division as JSX along

JSX says its mission is to “dramatically improve short-haul air travel by offering publicly available charter flights on 30-seat jets from private terminals.”
It now flies daily out of
six airports: Burbank (BUR), Las Vegas (LAS), Orange County (SNA), Napa/Concord
(CCR), Oakland (OAK), and Seattle-Boeing Field (BFI). JSX’s seventh
destination, Phoenix (PHX), will launch later this month.

Over the past two weeks, at least three more lawsuits have been filed against JetSmarter, including two customers who say shortly after spending $97,500 upfront for discounted multi-year memberships they found themselves without the benefits they paid for. The lawsuits filed in New Jersey, Illinois and New York each allege shortly after joining or renewing key benefits they were promised were no longer available. With the mounting lawsuits, in general, they detail a series of back and forth communications with JetSmarter employees as benefits were being changed, and after failing to receive a refund or satisfactory solution, in each case, the members decided to take JetSmarter to court.
