Good deal for people that lives in the area, better than going to SFO

Probably worth opening a separate thread on this. One of the things that TalkBoard has been considering is whether or not to have a forum dedicated to alternate airline travel. And this is somewhat separate from JetSmarter.

I like that we can find out about alternative jet travel, I'd never heard of JetSuite. Now I have another possible way of getting from Southern California to the Bay Area.

I would have never seen a thread about JetSuite because there is no forum dedicated to alternate airline travel.

I think TalkBoard has become a bit pedantic arguing about the potential merit of adding a forum and the correct category. It costs nothing to add and serves as a place to attract or eyes to see ads, whats the problem?

Suggestion, add the forum, if nobody uses it, delete it.

if there is huge thread about avoiding commercial airport terminals, that would show demand for forum to TB

jetsuitex getting US permissions is big news
if jetsmarter shuttles successful, may see expansion / others do it
delta private jets may be able to offer more than just upgrades

'big news' kind of similar to signature getting UK permission to use general aviation terminal at LGW for passengers on commercial flights (only 2nd in UK after LHR, which is very expensive)

another company plans similar offering at LAX, would be first in US

re jetsmarter, cant recall, are they one of the companies offering splitting of charters?
and has anyone happened to ask jetsmarter (or any others) about NY-DC shuttles?

You should make your opinions known in the appropriate thread in the Talk Board Topics forum.

I made my opinion known, but it is important to have other voices.

Feel free to contribute to this thread.

Agreed - let's spin out the JetSuite conversation from the JetSmarter thread. If the community isn't interested in this company/thread, then it'll sink naturally into the FT archives. Else, it'll at least help organise discussion a bit.

(I do have to ask, however, that we try to stay on topic and limit the metadiscussion around TalkBoard and forum creation.)

Thanks. /JY1024, TravelBuzz co-moderator

jetsuitex (multiple flights a day selling seats) is not jetsuite (charter)

all general aviation etc threads die on FT because no dedicated forum

And now another story that includes a video tour and pictures from Burbank.

I like what I see, but being on the right coast, it will be a while before I (might just) see it here.
