If you utilize the same category of aircraft for your flights at least 80 percent of the time private ownership can also make economic sense. However if your mission changes regularly traveling long range on some flights short to mid-range on others sometimes with just one or two colleagues other flights with a whole team then looking to purchase a private airplane would not make much sense no matter how sweet the deal because one category of aircraft would not serve the majority of travel needs. Charter could be better for this scenario because you can always select the right aircraft for each flight. Some fractional ownership programs and jet cards allow customers to select among three or four aircraft categories (light mid-size super-midsize and large cabin/long range jets) and use more than one aircraft simultaneously providing another option for fliers who need access to several categories of aircraft.
What does the future of luxury air travel look like? According to Tino Schaedler and Michael J Brown it comes in the form of a lifestyle zeppelin. The concept craft which they have called the Strato Cruiser Airship is an enormous carbon fibre zeppelin with an advanced propulsion system and photovoltaic cells to make travel safer faster and cleaner.
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.
