WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (Legal Newsline) – A New York resident alleges an air transportation company failed to offer promised benefits after he upgraded his membership.

Leonardo Galvez filed a complaint on Nov. 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Jetsmarter Inc., Brent Hollenbach and John Does 1-4 alleging breach of contract and other counts.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff paid $8,499 for Jetsmarter's program in April 2015. The suit states prior to his renewal in 2017, Hollenbach contacted the plaintiff with a notice he had been selected to upgrade his membership, and this offer was made again in March. The suit states he upgraded for the cost of $97,500 but within three weeks, he noticed a substantial reduction in services. He alleges he has attempted to obtain a return of his purchase price but Jetsmarter has refused.

The plaintiff holds Jetsmarter Inc., Hollenbach and John Does 1-4 responsible because the defendants allegedly changed the basis of the agreement they entered and did not offer the promised benefits.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants, award damages of no less than $3.4 million, together with prejudgment interest, costs, disbursements, fees of plaintiff’s counsel and experts, and reimbursement of expenses, and further relief the court deems just. He is represented by Bruce E. Baldinger of The Law Offices of Bruce E. Baldinger LLC in Morristown, New Jersey.
