7x7 | Semi-private flights from the Bay to L.A. are first class for the price of coach
I've always been enamored with the golden days of air travel. In the 1950s, flying was a glamorous experience that merited the finest attire; the voyage as exciting as the destination.
These days, the trip isn't what it used to be, with airlines slashing amenities and piling on the fees. The experience is more chaotic than classy, and airports are simply a necessary headache to get you where you want to go. So, when I heard about a new semi-private flight service from the Bay Area that promised "no lines, no crowds, no waiting, and no stress," I was intrigued.
Could it be legit? Turns out, it is. JetSuiteX, which launched its initial semi-private service from Burbank to Concord back in 2016, has quietly expanded its flight service to include Oakland, San Jose, and Las Vegas among its regular destinations, and also offers seasonal service to Mammoth Lakes and pop-up flights to events including Coachella.
