FAQs about Private Jet Charter
II. Empty Leg
An empty leg is an empty sector. Empty legs are caused when the company sells a round trip to a customer who only needs a one way. The management company sells the one way and takes the risk of selling the leg back to home base.
Empty legs can also be created by floating fleets who are trying to string together several flights. The positioning leg to get to their next revenue flight creates an additional leg that they can sell.
1. Empty legs are 100% non cancellable
2. Aircraft vendors only drop prices if they cannot sell the leg 12-24 hours prior to your scheduled departure
3. The probability of an actual flight existing for your exact date are very low – it’s a gamble. It’s like rolling the dice in Vegas!
4. Empty legs are reserved for high volume routes. If you’re trying to go to a small town, an empty leg flight is not an option
