Not everyone needs to personalise their private jet to indulge their taste for luxury. Some people are quite content to merely fly first-class provided their every whim is catered to and their every comfort is assured. Airlines such as Etihad have cottoned on to the needs of the super rich and have taken first-class flying to stratospheric levels. Even Etihad`s economy class is designed to make travellers feel more like valued customers and less like cattle bound for slaughter.
First of all you should find a charter company that is willing to take the time to answer all your questions. Question carefully as to the capacity and fuel requirement of each craft before deciding which is the best and most cost effective option. Also get a second opinion. Private jet charters are not above a little psychological selling. For example company A may insist that your destination airport because of its location or surface needs a special type of aircraft e.g. chopper for spot landing etc. If you are not aware of airport facilities inquiring directly at the airport or even asking another charter might help you avoid paying higher aircraft charter rates.
This was the return journey home from our 12-day visit to Argentina which was booked several months in advance redeeming reward points from our Air Canada Aeroplan frequent flyer account. Given the great distance and long journey time from Canada down to Argentina comfort was a priority. So we decided to splurge treating ourselves to Business Class reward tickets. We actually boarded the flight at its origin at Ezeiza Airport in Buenos Aires Argentina for the short two-hour hop across the Andes to Santiago Chile.
There are many ways this transaction can take place but it`s important that the charter client be aware of how the broker will be compensated for their services. This is a simplified summary of how the charter process works when using a broker to arrange for travel on your behalf. Be aware that all operators and brokers have their own way of doing things and the best way to find out how they do it is to simply ask them to explain it to you.
