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.

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 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!
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.

Avec Private Jet Charter vous avez l’assurance de trouver le service qui vous convient. Qu’il s’agisse d’une location de jet privé, d’une location d’avion de ligne, d’affrètement d’avions multiples (au cas où vous auriez vraiment un très grand groupe), de l’organisation d’un voyage de groupe (et de l’appareil adapté à sa taille), de transporter des marchandises ou encore d’un rapatriement, Private Jet Charter s’occupera de tous les détails de votre vol.
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.

Joel Thomas:  Hi William!  Thanks for the opportunity to serve you and your wife.  We are always grateful when our clients take the time to offer feedback.  We reached out to Chief Pilot of the air carrier you flew with regarding the noise you mentioned and here is what they said:  "Frequently you'll hear noises that sound like that and its just the airplane expanding as altitude, temperature and humidity change.  Its actually very common."  Looking forward to working with you all again soon!  All my best

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.
Mis le vol régulier de luxe n’est pas encore pour demain, et il reste difficile de s’organiser longtemps à l’avance pour bénéficier de ces super tarifs. La compagnie, elle, joue sur le fait de ne pas repartir à vide, d’avoir un avion en vol le maximum du temps, ce qui lui permet de proposer des billets moins cher. Pour l’instant, la star de la compagnie reste le trajet entre Ibiza et Palma de Majorque.
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.

Les avions commerciaux sont capables d’effectuer des vols sur des distances importantes avec à leur bord entre 100 et 250 passagers. Ils sont généralement plébiscités par les agences de voyage, les tours opérateurs, les agences événementielles, les croisiéristes et de nombreux autres clients pour un vol ponctuel affrété ou une série de vols. Ces vols sont plus communément appelés “vol charter”.


First time flying on a private plane. Knowing the exact layout inside & manner of boarding. Originally inquired about a Lear jet 35 & then confirmed a citation ll. Not a problem for me & my husband but for the 102 year old traveling with us was difficult to board as initial step into plane was 18 inches & the crew had to find a step stool. Steps were little and required several people to board & inboard her. The crew of Lance & Meagan were exemplary & would fly with them anytime
