    Yes

    If I had a few more bucks I would buy a pair of coaches club seats. I see them as cheap as 15K a pair and transfer seats to section of coaches club with reduced prices.

    Also if you had really good connections with Jets buy really crappy seats in a section cheap and work out a deal to transfer them to better seats. Maybe add one seat at full price to make jets happy.

    New York JETS PSL Lower Sideline Section 142 Row 17 Seat 17 & 18

    $14,000 for pair on buy it now.

    Funny how section 142 was a gold mine and now seat are fairly cheap.

    At 7k each these seats are not bad, not so high up and not that close to 143.

    But in the end they are middle aisle of section and in middle of row. Which makes them perfectly average. 1/2 the seats better 1/2 the seats worse.

    You have to be in top 10% of seats to get close to face.

    Not a bad buy, not a great buy. An average buy just like seats

    Im in 143. Meh. Granted Im in Row 20 but the game is literally a battle of ticket holders who want to stand up the whole game vs. those who want to sit. They spend the whole game fighting about it. Lots of visiting team fans get their tickets in that section (and the 2 sections next to us) so theres that. My least favorite part is the actual view of the game. If your specific seat is located in the middle of the aisle then you are pretty much parallel to the 1 yard line which leads to some great goal line stand views but when the drive is happening away from you it can get bad.

    Miss sitting in 308 at Giants Stadium.

    Here is a 143 goal line view. It is sweet when going for a TD

    I won't make the obvious joe here...


    That aside, where can you see actual sale data for these things? That those 142s row 30 on the good aisle are still out there at a discount provides quite a comp. Maybe buyers really don't see value in high row ll seats (though buyers of my seats for individual games last few years sure have)

    You have to keep the same amount of seats on your account.

    For example if you purchase 8 psls in the 2.5k range on the secondary for $1k each you would essentially have 20k in credit with the Jets while only paying 8K. Unfortunately if you wanted to move into the 10K psl price bracket you would have to buy 8 seats instead of doing an even swap for two seats.

    Let's turn in this into a debate on sunny side v shady side again. Also, higher row in lower level > all.



    I miss my seats. Let's go August.

    completely false. I upgraded 4 Mezz A seats ($16,000) into a pair of Lower Sidelines ($20,000) and gave the Jets the extra $4,000. No problem

    Unfortunately I was not offered this when I contacted the Jets.

    I paid way under face so I'm still happy.

    But someone might as well buy 20 Mezz B seats for pennies and turn them into two Coaches club seats.

    I think he ment you cant trade 4 Mezz A for four LSL. You have to pony up cash.

    I should buy a boatload of Mezz B at $300 bucks each and trade away

    A pair in the lower sideline would cost $20K though?

    I'm going to email my rep and see if that is the case about trading up.

    High row LL and low row Mezz are the best seats in the house.

    Shady side rules. Everyone knows this.

    I reduced my number of seats by 2. Your rep doesn't know what he's talking about unless they changed the rules between last off season and this one. As long as the total dollar amount brings more aggregate PSL money to the Jets, they couldn't care less about the number of seats. They would let me trade in my 5 LSL seats for a two or 3 in a better section in a heartbeat as long as the aggregate PSL cost is increased. In fact I've been offered to do so by them.
