Advantages of a Private Flight
The benefits of Private Flights are many, while the disadvantages are none. The many benefits include increased safety, greater convenience, increased privacy, better comfort, saving time, avoid airport hassles, control passengers around you, catering of preferred foods, increased productivity and the ability to take along luggage, small cargo, pets.
Higher price as compared to 1st Class tickets quickly decreases and disappears as more people fly on the same Flight.
Here are the details:
Comfort increase from the time you take the few steps from your vehicle to the steps leading up to your Private Flight cabin. Your seat offers endless comfort by its size and the space surrounding it, the ability to sit, recline or use a large surface table and be able to listen to music, watch video, make phone calls, use the Web, etc. Access to the lavatory is unlimited and you don't have to wait in line to use it. Your pets can accompany you on-board, your luggage of any reasonable size without weight limitations is loaded and unloaded in minutes and safely tucked behind you, never to be lost or misdirected to another destination.
Increased Safety in-Flight and on land.
Since Private Flights use Private Airports the access to the airports and boarding procedures are very different. Private Airports have many fewer passengers using them, the crews often-times know most of the passengers already and therefore offer less invasive, more customized security procedures. At many Private Airports passengers drive right up to the plane, are checked by the pilot if unknown to the crew and board quickly. Since all the passengers fly at the discretion of the person in charge of the Flight or owns the airplane, one is never at a risk of someone causing problems on board. Safety in-Flight also enables you to direct the Flight to a different airport or change the routing if weather or ground conditions change unexpectedly.
Boarding a Private Flight is only the beginning of a lot of extra conveniences of a Private Flight and is due to the smaller more convenient size and far fewer passengers at Private Airports. Once on board conveniences never cease, starting with the selection of your seat, easy access to the lavatory, catered meals based on personal preferences, having full control of entertainment options, not being bothered by unwanted obtrusive conversations, endless chatter of nearby passengers or crying babies, etc. Private Flights allow you to conduct meetings in full confidence, since you control who is on board.
Private Flights are a time saver for the traveler both en-route, to and from airport ground transport, as well as personal time beyond working hours. Private Flights are always the most direct route to save Flight time without having to incur delays resulting from having to change Flights & planes, in addition to the wait time involved at airports doing so. Private flyers are able to visit many more locations in 1 day than would be possible using commercial Flights and can easily land and takeoff from many private airports that will always be much closer to the desirable departure or destination locations, thus once again saving ground transportation delays. With such targeted Flight routes, the executive can visit the locations he/she needs to visit with minimal wasted time and arrive refreshed for business and relaxed for family time and relaxation after the Flight.
Control Tight Schedules
Executives traveling on Private Flights can fully manage their tight schedules and are unlikely to incur delays or surprises, as they will never experience Flight cancellations, late arrivals, lost or misdirected luggage or ground transportation delays.
No Lost or Delayed Baggage
Private flyers commonly transport critical equipment or supplies needed upon arrival for presentations, testing, repairs or other activities to be performed at destination following arrival. On Private Flights you see your baggage loaded and unloaded on your Airplane and can be assured it's not lost, misrouted or damaged enabling you to be conduct your intended activities.
Potential Cost Advantages
Flyers known that a Private Flight for 1 person will cost more than a 1st Class Ticket. However when a group is traveling, a Private Flight can be the same or even lower than 1st Class Air Fare, since the cost of a Private Flight is for the entire Airplane, not just 1 seat. If a convenient Empty Leg Flight is available, the cost will always be lower than Commercial 1st Class tickets with all the added benefits and conveniences of the Private Flight.
