JetSmarter is a membership service that lets you take available seats on private jet flights for free, or get access to charter a flight yourself. There are last minute deals which vary and they run certain routes as shuttles.
Pricing is currently $11,000 a year and a one-time $4000 initiation fee. I know of a couple of bloggers that have taken advantage of this (at earlier, lower prices) and have gotten great value out of it.
They are running all seats on New York – DC flights free for anyone, member or not this week and next week. Non-members can download the app and schedule a free private jet flight between Washington Dulles and Teterboro in New Jersey.
- New York – DC: November 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17
- DC – New York: November 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17
It’s super-simple, and I was able to search for flights without even registering.
There really are seats available. Here’s DC – New York on Thursday, November 17:
It’s only one flight. You have to take the 8pm. And it’s a turboprop. So we’re not talking Donald Trump’s 757. But it’s a short flight (I used to fly DC – Rochester on Jetstream 32 turboprops all the time 20 years ago).
You’re flying between Washington Dulles and Teterboro. Few private planes are allowed at National airport.
Note these terms though — book the flight you have to take the flight, or you pay for the flight:
Download the JetSmarter app and if you’re in or around DC or New York you really can fly private for free if you act quickly.
