Nowadays consumers have more options when it comes to how they fly. You may get Flack for asking the question “Do I fly Commercial?” or “Do I fly Private?” But, if you can afford it Private jets are the way to go.

Whether you go on a business trip or vacations a Private Jet allows you to maximize your time by reducing the number of hours you spend traveling. Of course, traveling in first class is also very luxurious, even if it means dealing with crowded airports.

So, what factors help us determine whether is better a Commercial Flight or a Private Flight?


Well, let’s be clear, there s no denying that a Private Jet is more expensive than a first class seat, so, let’s get that big elephant out the room from the start.

A light Jet costs $2.800 per hour, a Mid-Size $3.800, Super Mid-Size $4.500 and a large Cabin Jet goes up to $6.500 per hour. A first-class ticket from Los Angeles to Las Vegas costs around $1.500 a Private Jet may cost $5.000. But before you dismiss the idea of a Private charter, let’s analyze a couple of things, first, on a Commercial Flight you rent a seat if you bring somebody, then you rent two seats for double the price and if you want to invite seven of your closest friends to Las Vegas that would be $12.000 to fly First Class.

But, with Private jets, you are renting the whole plane, whether you take one person, two, seven or 10, the cost will be $5.000. and you and our travel companion get two hours if private flying delight.


On any Private jet, you’ll receive the VIP treatment you deserve, hot meals, salads, fruits, sandwiches and pastries, and of course, Champagne will always be available.

Another Unspoken truth about flying Private is that they can accommodate whatever amenities you have in mind from birthday cakes to a specific brand of coffee, if you want it, you’ll get it. Of course, that flying First Class has its amenities but they are never at the level of Private flights.


Of course to the average person flying privately will seem as luxurious as owning a Rolls-Royce. But, what makes it more economical is when to take into account the value of a person’s time. Commercial aircrafts only have access to the largest airports, which means that if the traveler is attending a meeting outside the “metropolitan area” additional transportation will be required and more time will be wasted. private Jets can access smaller airports getting their clients faster to their locations.

Another time-consuming factor of Commercial Flights, are the long lines at Airport Security.

One good advantage of Private Flying is the fact that this company usually don’t want to fly without passengers, which means they’ll be more than happy to wait for you if you are flying back the same day.


Yes, Flying privately can be more expensive at times, but if you are traveling with a group or in a group the costs aren’t as outlandish as they may seem.
