Everything worked out great. Working with Stratos was seamless. When the Trump TFR foiled our plans on both the outbound and inbound legs, Stratos was proactive in finding the best solution for us and minimized the disruption to the timing of our itinerary while also remaining flexible to our schedule as well. Joel could not have been easier to work with, finding us the best options at the best prices.
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.
Depending on who you believe 30-to-50% of all private jet flights are ferry flights. However, that doesn’t mean they are necessarily dirt cheap. Magellan Jets, which sells jet cards and on-demand charter also offers empty legs, and while you have to contact the company for pricing, it says rates start at $3,000 per hour. Airstream Jets enables visitors to its website to download a list of active empty legs and while most of the 13 listings were for the next two weeks, there were flights posted through mid-November, one an empty leg in September on a Gulfstream G-IVSP from New York to London for $49,900. Another broker quoted the same date and route at $92,000. Even more attractive was a G500 charter this weekend from Palermo, Italy to New York for $35,000. Quotes for a non-empty leg charter that I received from another broker for random dates in August started at $111,000.

I had 15 piece band booked on a commercial airline that got cancelled due to weather. Every single flight for the next 2 days was sold out and the band was going to miss their performance. Thank to the Herculean efforts from Glenn and Joel, we were able to secure a flight for the following morning and get the band to Florida on time. Glenn was simply amazing with his follow-through, availability when I needed him and keeping an eye on everything. He was with me from the first phone call at 6:30pm until take-off the next morning at 10:10am. Thank you Stratos for saving the day!
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.
From start to finish, our experience with Stratos was totally professional, made very simple and the ultimate in how charter travel should be booked/enjoyed! We know it takes an entire team behind the scenes but all credit to Joel for his 'personal' touch and for making our return trip to New York a very memorable one indeed!!! We have used several charter companies worldwide over the years but Joel and his team beat them all!!!
D’innombrables plateformes digitales ou applications de réservation tentent d’automatiser les services de courtage. Ces plateformes ont une connexion directe avec les opérateurs. Ils déjà donnent des prix estimés et offrent à grande échelle. Ainsi les prix sont souvent plus bas que chez courtiers. Le service personnel des courtiers est absent sur les plateformes digitales.
Always enjoy flying privately. Exciting from planning a trip to booking to flight(s). Predominantly use Stratos. Attentive and personal service. Joel Thomas was a great go to person. All subcontractors that they use have been top-notched. Only critique is I obtained better final pricing of the flight when I received quotes from other charter companies. Seems to be an industry thing about competitive pricing in order to obtain the best price. Yes I would recommend Stratos.
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!!
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

Autre tendance : la location. Les entreprises passent par des loueurs d’avions-taxis, comme NetJets ou Dassault Falcon Service. Plus besoin d’assurer la maintenance ou de salarier le personnel : l’avion est toujours prêt à décoller. D’autres sociétés de location proposent aux investisseurs de tirer profit de leur avion quand ils ne l’utilisent pas, exactement comme OuiCar ou Drivy pour la voiture. "Ces locations permettent de réaliser des vols pour un nombre précis de passagers sur des liaisons qui n’existent pas forcément ou de faire facilement des tournées de différentes villes sur une ou deux journées", commente Vincent, pilote pour une société d’avions-taxis.
Voyager en charter jet privé vous permet de bénéficier de milliers d’avantages dans les aéroports mondiaux, et notamment d’atterrir directement à destination finale sans avoir à supporter de nombreuses heures d’attente pour les correspondances ou les retards. Les professionnels des vols charter apprécient lorsque les départs ont lieu à l’heure prévue, afin de ne pas perdre de temps et de pouvoir assurer un travail efficace.
