Everyone involved was courteous and helpful in getting a last minute emergency trip arranged. However, the premise for using your services was to be GUARANTEED ARRIVAL by a SPECIFIC TIME. Neither the departure nor arrival was anywhere close to what was promised. Hence, our reasons for hiring Stratos to take us became unnecessary and a wasted expense
The Hawker 750’s biggest advantage is in its cabin, a fuselage-stretch modification first enjoyed by the -800 series. The cabin measures 21.3 feet-long, 5.7 feet-high and 6 feet wide, almost comparable to the class above. This space is plenty big to accommodate seven or eight passengers, a forward galley, a roomy lavatory, and a closet and baggage compartment. For even more amenities, the cabin comes equipped with the Airshow 21 cabin management system, providing user-friendly, LCD screens at every seat and VIP control of cabin temperature, light and entertainment systems. Superior travel is inevitable in the Hawker 750’s cabin.
THANK YOU STRATOS!! I have been working with Stratos Jet Charters for almost 3 years now & could not be happier with the services they provide! Working with me on many last minute changes, they are always quick & efficient, extremely professional, genuinely honest & immensely knowledgeable of all products and services they offer. They truly look out for the best interests of their clients. I trust them to always guide me in making the appropriate aircraft choices for our company. I find the ENTIRE team to be THE BEST in the charter aircraft business!!
Peace of mind!!! My family and I just completed our first charter on a private jet with Stratos. My wife and I have been on a few of our friend’s charters before and I fly regularly on my company's aircraft but this was the first charter of our own. Stratos and specifically Joel Thomas made my wife and I feel that we were in great hands throughout the planning, selection and ultimately flight process. Family loved it!!! Great experience.
Like scheduled airline service, private jets also have weight limits with regard to the amount of luggage that can be stowed during a trip. Items such as skis and golf clubs are allowed as long as they conform to the dimensions and weight limits of the aircraft. These weight limits vary by aircraft type. Ask your charter sales representative if you have concerns about excess baggage or special items to be included in your luggage.
Notre avis sur Surf Air : le prix est bien sûr intéressant, on ne peut le nier. La start-up américaine voit grand et après Genève, Zurich, Londres et Cannes, elle souhaite s’attaquer à Paris, Dublin, Amsterdam, Barcelone, Milan, Berlin et Edimbourg pour simplifier le quotidien des voyageurs amateurs ou des professionnels adeptes du jet privé pas cher.
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.
Il n’est pas le dernier à parader, surtout depuis qu’il est champion d’Europe avec l’équipe du Portugal. Il paraitrait que son jet vaut 19 millions d’euros. Une peccadille pour notre star du ballon rond qui ne fait même pas bouger son brushing d’un pouce au moment de sortir le carnet de chèques. Car la vedette est coutumière du fait, lui qui a déjà une collection de voitures à faire pâlir de jalousie un patron du CAC40.
My boss recently travelled to Europe for the entire month of August. During that time his jet had mechanical issues and could no longer fly where he wanted. He had about 12 flights left in his trip around Europe and Stratos Jet Charters, especially Heather Latch, saved our lives. They were able to accommodate 90% of the trips he wanted at the time he wanted. She really was a life saver for myself and my boss. I will definitely use Stratos Jets again and work with Heather any day of the week! They are magnificent!!
As the assistant who actually booked the trip and made the plans for my employer and her family, I must say that the experience was a new one for me. That said, the unfamiliar process was made much simpler thanks to the knowledge, expertise and patience of my rep, Christina Nesbit. She was extremely informative and helped thru each step of the process, reassuring me that the passengers were getting the most appropriate plane for their needs.I will double check to be sure there isn't any additional feedback I am missing, but to date I was told that the flight was a pleasurable one and they were appreciative and impressed that the President came to greet them pre flight as well.Thank you, Shari
Résultat : certaines compagnies mettent en vol ses places « à vide » à un prix défiant toute concurrence. Il est même possible de négocier. En effet, les compagnies sont prêtes à tout ou presque pour ne pas perdre trop d’argent. 75% de ristourne n’est pas impossible. Et il n’est pas rare de trouver des billets en jet privé moins cher que des premières..
Jet privé, location de jet à l’heure, location de jet privé à vide, cojetage… il y en a pour tous les goûts quand il s’agit de la location d’un jet privé pas cher (même si cela reste un luxe que de nombreuses personnes ne peuvent se payer). Et vous que préférez-vous ? Avez-vous déjà eu l’occasion de voler dans un jet privé ? Souhaitez-vous le faire ?
If the paying customer – that person shelling out $5,000 to $20,000 per hour - cancels his or her trip, then your empty leg will also be cancelled. If you were going somewhere, make sure your hotel and car rental reservations can be changed without penalty. If you were using an empty leg to get home, make sure you also scan the airline schedules and availability so you have a backup plan. Most empty legs can be cancelled anytime before departure, and reasons can include that delays earlier in the day meant your pilots ran out of time to something on the inbound flight broke and needs to be fixed. Oh, and that’s it. You’ll get a refund of your money, but you’re usually on your own, perhaps sitting in a private jet terminal at an airport with no commercial flights.
C’est un service qui fonctionne de la même manière que Airbnb, il suffit de s’associer avec des pilotes qui ont des places disponibles dans leurs avions. Les pilotes s’inscrivent au service et, après vérification, ajoutent des détails sur leurs vols planifiés que vous pouvez ainsi réserver. Les pilotes ne font pas de profit, mais c’est un bon moyen pour eux d’obtenir des heures de vol et de réduire leurs frais tout en se livrant à leur passe-temps.
I was thouroughly impressed with the professionalism of the Broker Joel, the flight organizer Sarah and the crew on both legs. The aircraft was clean, in good shape and right on time. The crew was friendly and professional to me and my guests. Two small issues were getting a tail number on less than 12 hours that made getting our rental cars more complex than necessary and more significant was being notified by our bank that you tried to bill my flight a couple times when I paid in full prior to first leg. All in all I would use them again but would encourage one contact who checks in daily a few days prior to flight rather than me having try to figure out who to call when it looked like a couple problems were coming up.
Car, pour le businessman, le jet privé reste l’expression d’un luxe qu’il peut difficilement s’offrir en automobile. Autant il est acceptable qu’un chef d’entreprise vole dans un avion valant entre 50 et 70 millions d’euros, autant il est difficile de l’imaginer rouler dans autre chose qu’une Audi A8 ou une Mercedes Classe S quand ses moyens lui permettraient pourtant d’avoir une Rolls-Royce Phantom. Le jet est vu moins comme un signe extérieur de richesse ou de pouvoir que comme un outil de travail rendu indispensable par la mondialisation. Ainsi, Bernard Arnault a été le premier patron français à se rendre à New York pour être reçu personnellement à la Trump Tower, le 9 janvier 2017, par le nouveau président des Etats-Unis. En y allant avec un jet, le P-DG de LVMH a réalisé un gain de temps par rapport à un vol commercial : les horaires sont à la carte et les contrôles plus rapides étant donné le nombre très limité de passagers… On estime ainsi qu’un P-DG qui effectue une trentaine de voyages par an peut gagner l’équivalent d’un mois de travail en optant pour le jet plutôt qu’en empruntant un vol régulier.
From pre-trip planning to updates via text message on your way to the airport, Stratos had us covered. We made our way from Emirates @ JFK and the FOB transfer was easy. Joel had already updated Julie (my assistant) before we landed that there were long delays out of JFK due to weather. The transfer to FBO was easy and they were expecting us. The plane was comfortable and modern and the crew could not have been kinder. Thank you guys as always for a great trip. Flight was great and the crew took us right past the storms and my one year old son slept the whole trip; a much needed reprieve for my wife and I.
I have worked with Joel and Stratos Jets for several years and it has always been a pleasure. Most recently they booked a flight from St Petersburg, FL to Sanford, FL to Niagara Falls, NY with us on our Citation CJ1. The experience, as always was flawless and realtime feedback and communication meant the ASAP flight went without a hitch. Thank you Joel and team, I look forward to many more years of business with you.

Same on return flight except we arrived a good half hour early but crew jumped to task and loaded us and dogs promptly for return. Only item worth mentioning was during climb out to altitude both my wife and I heard numerous bumping sound on both sides of fuselage up and down the sides and top. We have owned our own planes and owned shares in jets through Flight Options and chartered often over the years and we have never had this type of noise. It almost sounded like rivets coming out or random bird strikes (which I knew it was not). I mentioned it to the co-pilot and he told me to report it so maintenance could be sure to check it out. Said it may be a maintenance issue on an older aircraft but a first for me. After attaining altitude the noise did not reoccur. All else went according to schedule and the pilots were very professional and assisted on and off with dogs and luggage. I would use again this service. Thank
Joel Thomas and his great team at Stratos makes booking a private charter easy. They keep in contact with you from the start right through to after the flight, which gives my travellers a piece of mind. Everything is always exactly planned to our specifications. Stratos really goes above and beyond in their industry - they are simply the best at what they do.

Il n’en fut pas toujours ainsi. Pendant longtemps le secteur de l’aviation privée fut considéré comme limité et offrant peu d’options. À la fin du siècle dernier, l’aviation commerciale était celle qui regorgeait de nouvelles idées. Aujourd’hui, le marché des vols domestiques commerciaux aux Etats-Unis est écrasé par quelques poids lourds qui contrôlent plus de 80% du marché ; l’innovation provient maintenant du secteur privé de l’aviation.
