    Just got this offer by email. For those not familiar with JetSuiteX, it's an airline of private planes in which you can get the "flying private" experience (small plane, no security at airport, just arrive 20m before takeoff) but for commercial prices. They mostly operate in the southwest area of the US, and flights can be had for under $100 one-way.

    This particular offer is made in conjunction with Wynn, with the following inclusions:

    I think this is one helluva deal, especially considering the credit and the room upgrade. For those concerned about flying commercial, this might also be a workaround to alleviate concerns related to that.

    I flew them from PHX to OAK to got to a 49ers playoff game. They were terrific and I do want to take them to Vegas someday, but can't pass up SWA $49 flights out of Tucson this summer.

    I've heard good things about JSX! Exciting.

    Once Burbank is back to normal, I'll consider it.

    I too have heard excellent things about JSX. When they were JetSuite, they flew from CCR, 5 minutes from my home to LAS and BUR. they stopped LAS, still fly CCR-BUR But OAK is still convenient. A co worker did Oak to LAS, said it was great.

    Their fares aren't much higher than SWA from OAK-->LAS. Except when SWA has big sales. I've been very tempted when JSX was only $15 more.... for the super convenience. Just never worked out.

    Thing is, I'm comp'd at Wynn, So I'm evaluating JSX on airfare only... no package. Also, I Vegas solo, and when I see "per person" in ads, I know they're not for me.

    I took JSX from Vegas to Oakland a few trips ago and it was a very nice ride. The plane was comfortable, free drinks were plentiful, and best of all avoided the TSA lines at McCarran.

    This promo was going to cost me about $1500 for 2 people and 2 nights at the Wynn from BUR-LAS. Wonder where the $216 comes in to play lol.

    Glad to hear positive reviews. If I can get the $600 flight credit reimbursement at Caesars for the Diamond Elite flight then I might consider trying it out. Burbank is closer to me than LAX and would be curious to experience it myself.

    It’s $1146 for a booking for 2 people flying from SNA this Fri-Sun staying in Wynn tower king for 2 nights. Not bad at all, but not quite $216pp.

    It’s obviously not a private plane—30 small seats crammed in—but you do fly from an FBO rather than the main terminal and they valet your car. I’d do it.

    I pondered it on my upcoming trip but a 2 hour drive to Burbank isn’t really doing it for me.

    But that jet though out of SNA is a little over an hour. Hmmmm...
     
    Tis the season!
