We had quite a number of issues booking this trip, which resulted in add'l work and follow up for me. As broker these issues should have been handled / caught prior to making a proposal. I believe I had to sign 4 different revised quote sheets for this trip! Also the final signed sheet stated we would land in LFMD on the return leg. Hence we booked transportation for pick up at LFMD. However flight landed in LFMN. This caused add'l stress and expense for no reason. I have only now seen that the last itinerary link showed an arrival at LFMN - but I never opened this one since all previous ones, including the contract reconfirmation showed LFMD. As for the aircraft itself: it was one of the oldest ones I have ever flown. The door / separation to the toilet / luggage area was broken (not the lock but the entire frame!) and the toilet was not accessible due to a lot of "stuff" (amenities, water bottles, etc.) being thrown in / stored in the area. Overall cleanliness was not superb either. Finally, the catering we requested was not available / not complete. Breakfast (eggwhite and sausage!!) was cold and wet and the fruitplatter had molded grapes; no ice bucket, nor champagne glasses were present. On the return leg, fruitplatter was nice but again no ice bucket nor champagne glasses were present. As a matter of fact, the soft drink container was not even replenished w new ice!! So overall - yes, we flew from A to B but the service experience was disappointing.
Some other examples of prices come from Avinode, which powers a charter marketplace for brokers and operators and gathers a large amount of data on pricing. Their recent data shows the average price per hour for return trips, for various aircraft. As noted above, these rates can vary depending on when you fly, where you fly and if your flight is one way or return, plus landing fees, ramp fees and any repositioning can all add to the costs. Always ask for a fully inclusive quote from your broker or operator.
Of course, the cheapest way to fly privately is to have a friend who invites you on their flight. Then there are the semi-private charters like JetSmarter, JetSuiteX and JetClass where you can buy a seat on a scheduled private jet and corporate shuttle flight sharing it with strangers, much like if you were on a commercial airline. You can buy tickets on these flights for under $200 and you do avoid those crowded main airport terminals. However, if you want to have the real deal experience, chartering your own private jet, you are looking at something between $5,000 and up to $20,000 per hour depending on the size of aircraft and routing.
There are two major differences between private charter and scheduled airline service: cost and flexibility. While booking a flight via jet services companies is generally more expensive, they provide a much higher degree of flexibility.

Our service to both major and general aviation airports gives you access to more than ten times as many domestic destinations as scheduled airline service. In addition, we have international experience operating in more than 80 countries.

Vous pouvez tout aussi bien réserver un aller-retour en jet privé qu'un aller simple. Il est important de signaler que le prix du voyage est élevé si l'avion doit rentrer à vide à son point de départ. Un voyage sans passager entraine encore des frais inhérents à l'utilisation d'un jet privé comme le carburant, l'équipage et les redevances dues aux aéroports et à l'infrastructure des transports aériens. C'est pourquoi un retour à vide reste un investissement, même si vous êtes exonérés des redevances de stationnement, de sureté de passager et des frais supplémentaires.
Chaque voyage en jet privé nécessite l'utilisation de l'infrastructure des transports aériens. Ainsi, les taxes aériennes sont comparables aux péages pour les voitures sur l'autoroute. Ils sont inévitables afin de pouvoir utiliser le trafic aérien. Le prix final dépend du poids de l'avion et de la longueur du trajet. Chaque pays a également ses propres variations de prix.
Il existe huit catégories d’avion privés classées selon leur prestation, la taille de leur cabine et leur rayon d’action. Choisir l’avion le plus adéquat pour votre vol vers Genève peut être  compliqué selon vos besoins spécifiques. Parfois vous aurez besoin d’avoir plus de passagers à bord, d’autres fois la rapidité et le rayon d’action seront votre priorité ou tout simplement vous aurez besoin d’un avion ayant une grande capacité pour vos bagages.
