XOJET’s Guide to the U.S. Open

The U.S. Open offers a distinctive blend of sporting urgency and big-city entertainment. It’s the season’s final Grand Slam event, so the world’s top players are eager to make one last splash and etch their name into tennis lore.

And really, there’s no better place to make a memorable splash than the Big Apple, with its uniquely bustling, eclectic aura. The crowds invariably include all manner of fans, from the dignified to the, uh, loud. A friend who has covered many Opens calls them a “great conglomeration of humanity,” in which conventional boundaries take a holiday.

This was most evident in the late 1970s and early ‘80s, when John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors practically traded the men’s title (they combined to win seven straight, from 1978 through ’84) and spectators occasionally shouted in the middle of a player’s serve. That’s certainly excessive, but it speaks to the passionate and boisterous setting in the United States’ largest, sports-crazed metropolis.

XOJET & Bloomberg Take To The Sky (And Not Just Any Airspace)!

April 20, 2016  |  Media

Last week, XOJET President & CEO Brad Stewart took to the sky, treating Bloomberg Correspondent Ramy Inocencio to an unforgettable view of the Manhattan skyline in the busiest airspace. A mere 2,500 feet off the ground (airplanes typically fly at an altitude of 35,000 feet), the two came very close to the Statue of Liberty, Freedom Tower and Times Square, which for Brad, has never happened before in his long career as XOJET’s President & CEO.
