The flight from the Bay Area to Los Angeles itself is only about an hour long, but when you factor in arriving at the airport early and waiting in security lines, you're looking at around four to five hours of total travel by the time you finally reach your destination. Introducing: JetSuiteX, an opportunity to fly on a private jet from Oakland to Burbank for just $129 each way.
As someone who makes this trek often, I normally don't pay more than $120 round trip (unless it's last-minute or around a holiday). So to pay around the same ticket price for just one way does sound a bit of a stretch. But the fact these jets have their own private terminal (aka no lines, no crowds, no waiting) easily makes it worth it. Instead of arriving two hours before your flight, how about 15 minutes? That's about the same amount of time the Cabin Bus requires you to arrive before departure, except the $115-luxury-bus ride is an eight-hour drive.
On top of minimal travel time, each jet passenger can enjoy leather seats with business class leg room, full flight attendant service, and free cocktails and snacks in both their airport lounges and on board. You also don't have to worry about waiting at the carousel for your bags because luggage service is included.
Flights are available to book now for travel dates starting from Nov. 13. And in addition to providing service between Oakland International Airport and Bob Hope Burbank Airport, JetSuiteX also flies to and from the East Bay/Concord area, Las Vegas, and San Jose.
