The Truth About Flying JSX - Semi Private Jet Experience

I traveled on JSX from Las Vegas to Dallas last week. JSX is a part 135 charter operator, not an airline. I was able to check-in quickly from their own facility in Las Vegas in just a few minutes and there was no invasive TSA security screening. The next moment I was walking onto an Embraer 145 jet on the ramp. The plane was fitted with 1-1 seating configuration so there is no middle seat so there is no seat neighbor to share with.

I spoke to the JSX pilots, crew, and a few passengers about their experience onboard. The flight time to Dallas was 2 hours 30 minutes through some scenic view of Grand Canyon. After landing in Dallas, the checked baggage was first to be placed on the tarmac before passengers deplane. I got my bag within a minute and the next minute I was in a pre-booked car driving away from the private terminal. The whole experience on JSX was swift, much faster than flying into and out of the crowded airport terminal which you go through lines of check-in and screenings.

The 1-1 seating configuration is currently served on JSX Texas route only. West Coast routes are served by 1-2 seating configuration.

Lastly, I interviewed CEO of JSX, Alex Wilcox on the future expansion plan of JSX, whether more planes will be re-configured to 1-1 seating. Alex shares with me how he started in aviation almost 3 decades ago.

    It is comparable to 1st class/business class of certain big airline but you are definitely not flying in a private jet like billionaires and their families do........

    I used to fly the Embraer 145 a while ago with ExpressJet, it's a great airplane. Although the ones I flew weren't as pretty looking as these lol.

    Regarding flight time: It depends on the training and the person. Some people can just do this and will never put a foot wrong. Less time spent on good training (as in USAF UPT and Pensacola) is way better than 1,500 hours of towing banners or having rich kid (but useless) students try to spin you or side-load the gear. The Colgan accident and 1,500 hours has made it likely that we are missing out on some gifted people who can't afford this, and ending up with that dude who sadly crashed the Atlas Air B767. Typically real the MAX MBA aircraft designers.
