If you want to know what the startup JetAmerica airline is all about, read this very clear and useful explanation by Ed Perkins at Smarter Travel. He lays it all out.
Perkins explains how JetAmerica, technically a charter operation, differs from most other airlines. And he points out, quite rightly, that its advertising is misleading because its rock-bottom $9 one-way fares come with a $5 “convenience fee” — and that’s before taxes and other fees.
Still, $14 is quite the bargain. You just need to be aware of the trade-offs. So if you want to try one of these ultra-cheap fares, read the piece first and you’ll understand what you’re buying.
