    Just curious if anyone has done the Fly Borgata trip.
    They have been sending me offers for comp flights on their private jet for several months and this weekend opened up so I'm gonna give it a shot.

    Normally I drive but on Fri afternoon the 3 hour drive can become 4 going through Philly.
    The flight is 30 min.
    Not having to deal with TSA,security lines,airport parking etc is a major plus.

    The Borgata started running junkets that they operate on their own leased jets.
    Apparently it started in the spring but just expanded into my market, Central,Pa.
    I do not have the complete list of cities but I know Charlotte, Raleigh, Cleveland,Long Island,Pitt and others.

    I just did it this weekend so here is the lowdown.

    Harrisburg is a 3-4 hour drive to AC depending on traffic going through Philly.Fri afternoon it is usually bad and that's when the flight is.

    My offer was for one comp flight and a guest is $240.
    There is a $20 booking fee.
    They fly on a 30 person private jet out of the private terminal.
    No check in lines,ATS,scanners etc.
    Flight was scheduled to leave at 2:45 and I arrived at 2:00 pm.

    Total of 11 people on the flight and we were on the plane wheels up at 2:35.

    Full comp cocktail and snack service onboard(quick)
    Touchdown in AC at 3:05.

    Shuttle bus waiting when we got off and 20 minutes later we were checking into the Water Club at Borgata.

    They have a special check in set up with keys waiting.

    Borgata is the best hotel/casino in AC with a great selection of bars and restaurants.
    We ate at Old Homestead Steakhouse Fri night and Fornaletto Italian Sat.

    Really enjoyed both.

    I was honestly a little skeptical of this as I questioned if it would be worth it paying $240 for my wife to fly someplace I am used to driving to.

    It was well worth it!

    I saved at least 7 hours driving and the treatment was first class.
    The return trip was just as smooth.
    I sent my host an email thanking her for the arrangements and was pleasantly surprised to hear I get two seats comped on my next trip which will be Feb.14-15.

    The whole experience was great and I highly recommend it.
