LOS ANGELES – An air charter broker alleges a private jet operator failed to provide a flight as contracted and has failed to tender a refund.
Jet-I Inc. filed a complaint on June 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Professional Flight Transport Inc., doing business as Windsor Jet Management, et al. alleging breach of contract, conspiracy and other counts.
According to the complaint, on May 31, the parties entered into a contract agreement wherein defendant Windsor would provide a private jet for plaintiff's client for a flight from Miami to Van Nuys. The plaintiff alleges it sent Windsor $30,380 to pay for the flight, but on the date the flight was set to depart, the defendant informed it the jet had suffered mechanical failure and that it could not complete the flight. The defendant did not provide a replacement and did not refund the money, the suit states.
As a result, the plaintiff alleges it suffered a loss of a valuable business relationship with its client and the resulting consequence of having word spread that it was unable to complete a chartered flight.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual, statutory, punitive or treble damages; and such other relief as provided by the statutes cited herein in an amount of more than $75,000. It is represented by Naveed Mahboobian of Law Offices of Naveed Mahboobian in Santa Monica.
