    Yep, got this email as well. Great for us flying out of Burbank. Check in is easy and no lines as well since they fly out of a private plane / small terminal

    I didn't know about this service before. No subscription? I think this is my new favorite thing.

    they're losing money right now at these prices.

    there have been many of these types of companies come along over the years and they all went belly up.

    it's easy to fill planes at less than cost.

    a lot harder when you have to charge enough to actually make money.

    that's when they start to lose customers and end up going under.

    maybe this one can make it work, but unlikely, so take advantage of it while it's here!

    they can't last, we both know they never do

    it's barely worth it for them at $6K a trip..are they using an actual jet or a King Air?

    They used to fly from Concord ( east bay suburb) to Vegas. They would have deals for 75$ each way. They hardly ever had more then half the seats full in a Thursday for a Friday flight. They stopped that route after a month. Now they go Concord to Burbank then to Vegas.

    My buddy took the Concord to Burbank flight. Said it was 2/3 full but nice. Free drinks. No security. You use the private hangars in Burbank.

    It won't last.

    just checked it's an RJ..calling that a private jet is stretching the truth a tad
    technically it IS a privately chartered jet..buuuut it's not a Citation or gulfstream like it might sound

    I doubt anyone expected a $20M+ plane at these prices.
