JetSuiteX: The Experience of Private for the Price of Commercial

I was once again wide awake at 3 AM and jet lagged from a recent trip to Croatia, but eager to board  JetSuiteX‘s inaugural flight at 8 AM for the first #WineWednesday hop from Burbank to Concord, right outside of Napa. From Malibu, it took me an hour to get to the JetSuite gate, and with a quick toss of my keys to valet and no security lines, terminal delays or baggage headaches, I was quickly boarding my flight a few feet from my car. Apparently the same flight is about $199 one way, which beats the cost of driving to Napa and your time.

Soon, regular flights from Burbank will occur to Concord and Las Vegas (starting at $99 one way) and seasonally JetSuiteX will zoom you to Mammoth, San Jose, and Boseman, Montana. You can even earn TrueBlue points on JetBlue on JetSuiteX or even charter the whole plane.

If you are heading in this direction or even want to take a quick getaway to wine country, this is a win, win win, win! You can bring your dog for free. Your flight comes with complimentary drinks (yes wine too) and healthy snacks. There is free WIFI on the plane, although it worked intermittently, and the flight is so fast, no need to worry, you will be there in no time.

Rest your eyes in their comfortable roomy soft leather seats or gaze admiringly at the changing California scenery. Half of the 30 person jet consisted of business men, who probably were entertained and amused by a bunch of writer/blogger/influencers on their plane snapping photos, selfies, and boomerangs with our new vegan leather sleek colorful Dagne Dover travel bags filled with goodies. There were many mommies on board, and I could imagine that JetSuiteX would save a lot of headaches when traveling with a baby.

Upon arrival in Concord, our group of Angelenos were whisked away past green vineyards to sip vino at Raymond Vineyards, a calm and peaceful spot that hosts dogs outside in elaborate play pens donned the “Frenchie Winery.”  Once inside, you soon realize this winery with its opulent tres chic decor, almost feels like a Vegas nightclub or Parisian boudoir with various dark, creative, whimsical rooms for entertaining and education. One room reminded me of HBO’s Westworld as men in silver jumpsuits were in a sealed room, a blending room where you can actually make your own red wine for the day. Even twenty smelling stations lined a hallway. Perhaps an exercise in the nose knows best? This solar powered biodynamic winery arrived in Napa in 1933 and now has over 300 acres of estate vineyards in the Napa Valley, in 3 locations. Clearly Raymond Vineyards has evolved into a sensual experience.

The Cook Tavern and Pizzeria, a bustling farm-to-table restaurant, spoiled us with a communal style lunch before we ventured to our last stop at Liana Estates, the millennial winery. This breathtaking scenic experience-focused winery is 45 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Carneros, California. Cheers to sparkling rose!

Our winery experience was created by WhichWinery.com, a guide for consumers to discover and experience new wineries that fit their custom search preferences. WhichWinery is the world’s first winery based travel site that connects each winery’s unique qualities with user preferences, whether it be small, dog friendly, a modern facility, have a view, or a large production that caters to groups. The site connects people to unique wineries anywhere in the world and now boasts over 20,000 wineries across 47 countries.

JetSuiteX is co-founded by Alex Wilcox (currently the CEO), the founding executive of JetBlue Airways. It’s easy to see that flying private in America may eventually make more sense. Let’s hope more routes are added. What better way to experience the world, quick and easy. Get the JetSuiteX app.
