Air travel is never particularly glamorous, but nowadays—with long lines, cramped seats, and the larger prospect of flight cancellations—it feels less appealing than ever. Expedia, a travel website, conducted a survey that found 55 percent of Americans consider commercial flights “more intimidating than filing taxes or going to the dentist.”
A smaller airline thrives by offering customers a superior experience at prices comparable to those of the major carriers. It’s no surprise that the bigger companies want to close it down.
JSX is a regional airline that operates out of private terminals rather than large commercial jets. Most flights are short, like the popular Burbank-Las Vegas route. It also offers a Miami-New York flight.
In the smaller terminals passengers can board their planes without having to pass through Transportation Security Agency checkpoints. JSX actually checks the TSA database for pre-checked passengers before boarding.
