While looking at aircraft charter rates you will have to consider the weather a big and uncertain factor. Most responsible charter companies have up-to-date weather information and you should we able to calculate possible delays and added charges before booking a charter. For instance due to bad weather the airport you want to land on becomes unreachable and you have to redirect the flight to another airport. Consider the added costs now in terms of transport to the point of destination from the new airport etc. If you are well informed you can bargain over these factors to adjust the aircraft charter rates before flying.
The Business Class cabin was two thirds empty on the two hour Buenos Aires - Santiago sector and we landed an hour of so before sun down in clear and warm conditions with the Captain informing us it was still 29 degrees C. All passengers were deplaned at Santiago during the one hour station stop so that the aircraft could be groomed for the long-haul flight back to Toronto. Interestingly enough Air Canada has traffic rights between Buenos Aires and Santiago so some passengers left us but a larger number along with the new crew were waiting to join the flight at gate 15 in the new Santiago Airport terminal. Large glass windows are a prominent feature of the new airport which is great for aircraft spotters but they somehow forgot to incorporate an adequate air-conditioning system. It was stifling hot as we waited to board the flight although the Servisair-GlobeGround contract agents boarded the plane efficiently there was no advance boarding for Business-Class passengers as normal in Canada.
Traveling first class or business class is a luxury few can afford. Most airlines now offer a fully exclusive first class lounge and when you fly you are treated to more space high quality food and attentive service. The benefit you get is that you can check in later at a dedicated desk (avoiding the queues). You can then relax in the comfort of the airline`s lounge where you will find complimentary drinks snacks newspapers and other facilities. There`s no rushing or queuing to board your flight. Your flight seat will usually be a cradle that stretches out to a virtually horizontal position which has legroom up to 60". The in-flight staff is dedicated to your cabin and when you arrive your luggage will be amongst the first off the carousel.
