Private aircraft charter companies don`t always own the planes they run. Many belong to rich private owners or big businesses who lend them to the charter companies to keep up maintenance. Generally like car rental companies private jet charter companies are legally bound to keep their aircraft well maintained. You can chose to ask for the latest inspection report or anything similar for assurance and see that the last maintenance of the particular aircraft on offer is not too long ago. Same applies for the pilots. You should never compromise on these for lower aircraft charter rates.
And that`s just economy. In Diamond class travellers are treated to the "revolutionary" Diamond Seat which rotates 180 degrees contains a 23` personal LCD video screen has a six-way movement headrest with built-in massage facility and is able to convert into luxurious 6 foot 1 inch flat bed. The zone even has a coatroom and mini-bar. Seats in the Pearl zone also convert into flat beds or "business-beds" as they are called.
As we took our seats 2D and 2F in a full Business-Class cabin National Post and Globe and Mail newspapers were handed out along with a Spanish language Chilean paper. A bottle of water was waiting in each seat for each passenger however there was no pre-departure drink service for the Business-Class passengers (orange juice champagne wine etc) as is standard on other airlines. I decided the check the magazine rack for some interesting in-flight reading material only to find Canadian Living Chatellaine Canada Food and Wine and Canadian Fishing; titles that are of little interest to most business travelers. There were no business and news magazines such as The Economist Business Week or Time which one would naturally expect to be provided. Our flight was under the command of Captain Green and he did not provide the passengers with a welcome aboard announcement telling us about flying time planned routing enroute weather or weather at destination.
