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 existe d'autres options pour voyager en jet et payer moins cher (même si cela restera plus onéreux que les vols dernière minute), c'est l'abonnement. C'est avantageux pour ceux qui font beaucoup de trajets. La compagnie SurfAir par exemple sur la côte ouest des États-Unis propose de devenir membre pour 1 750$ par mois. Une fois l'abonnement payé, on peut prendre le jet de façon illimitée. La compagnie vole depuis une douzaines de villes du Nevada et de la Californie. À l'Est des États-Unis on trouve la compagnie Beacon qui propose aussi un abonnement de 1 750$ pour des vols illimités entre New-York et Boston. Quand on regarde le prix, on se rend compte que cela devient avantageux à partir d'environ 4 vols par mois minimum. Au-delà de 4, les vols coûteront en effet moins chers qu'en classe affaires sur une compagnie régulière.
