April 20 -- Why fly first class when you can book your own private plane? XOJET, the private jet company backed by TPG Capital, can take you across the U.S. faster than a commercial flight and its service is on demand. The company keeps client names secret, but social media posts from Instagram and Twitter reveal a few of them, including celebrities The Rock and DJ Tiesto. Bloomberg's Ramy Inocencio takes a private tour over Manhattan with XOJET CEO Brad Stewart.

People on this thread just don't get it. There are a few million people who are so wealthy that 30 grand one way is relative to you spending 150 bucks one way. You have no idea what its like to be that wealthy and its not nuts to them.

When you are an executive out to finish a $20 Million dollar deal, a small $30, 000 fee to fly across the country is nothing. If you buy a ticket with a commercial airliner and you miss your flight because the security lineup is out the door of the airport, then you just lost $20 Million dollars. That's why this XOJET service is in such high demand.

Huge difference between Uber and XOJets: Uber doesn't own the vehicles using the platform, while XOJET directly owns its planes.

More like "on-demand rental", nothing new here

Isn't this just the same thing as chartering which has been around forever? When it say uber, I was thinking people with their private jets were turning on their smartphones and clicking accept job and yelling to the pilot... "hey let's land in that airport over there... there is someone we have to pick up..."
