Gailen's Current Projects:

The Jet Set

World's First Travel Themed Talk-Show

Executive Producer, On-Air Host, Co-creator 

The Jet Set, now in its third season, is an award winning show designed to reinvent travel television and keep pace with the professional, leisure and aspiring traveler by experiencing the sights, sounds and scenery of destinations around the world or here at home, along with you!

As the first hybrid talk and travel show, ‘The Jet Set’ is anchored from its ‘jet’ television set complete with an airplane wing desk and actual set pieces built from a decommissioned Boeing 747. Alternatively, like other travel shows, ‘The Jet Set’ hits the road to feature destinations, attractions, festivals and unique adventures.

Travel and talk veterans Gailen David, Bobby Laurie and health and wellness expert Nikki Noya will keep you in the loop each week with a wide variety of guests from the entertainment and travel worlds, on-location experiences, and insight into the latest trends and current events.

But more importantly, we let you in on the fun and reinforce that you don’t need to “jet” to be part of the “Jet Set” experience!

Author, Speaker, Ambassador ∙Jetiquette®

Jetiquette® has morphed into a global movement to return more civility to the travel experience. Travelers are showing more consideration and courtesy towards those they encounter along the way as airlines, airports, hotels and other travel providers work to elevate the customer experience. 

The "Jetiquette...The Customer Experience and You" training program was recognized by Travel Weekly Magazine and received "The Magellan Award" in 2008. Gailen's from-the-heart program focused on showing front-line workers how valuable they really are and shared his own methods for recognizing and savoring the many rewards that come from making the travel experience special for someone else.
