Founded in 2016, JetSuiteX describes itself as an “affordable private-like air travel for the cost of an airline seat with free snacks, drinks, bags and business class legroom.” Earlier this month, the company announced a rebrand to JSX, and it looks like the company was able to secure the brand match JSX.com domain name in advance of the rebranding.
