In many ways, flying first class and flying via a private jet charter are similar. They’re both far more comfortable than flying economy or even business class. Plus, there’s the luxury of arriving at your destination in style. But which is truly more comfortable?
Private Jet Charters Arrive More Quickly
No matter how comfortable the seats are on an airplane, the less time you have to sit in them, the better. A private jet charter helps to achieve this better than flying first class because a private jet charter can fly directly to your destination without any layovers. Plus, private jet charters can land at smaller, regional airports while commercial flights typically have to fly into bigger airports. This helps to reduce the amount of time you spend traveling via ground transportation, too.
Private Jet Charters Depart on Your Schedule
When you fly first class, you’re still dependent on the schedule of the airline. You have to be at the airport hours ahead of time to go through security and wait at the gate. You have to choose your flight based on what options the airline is offering rather than what is truly the most convenient for you. With a private jet charter, you can book the charter for exactly when you need to leave as well as eliminate long waits ahead of time.
Private Jet Charters Cater to Your Preferences
Any flight, no matter how long, is made better by access to catering and entertainment. With a first-class seat, you’ll have better options than those presented to those flying in economy class. You’ll also get to choose your snack, meal, and drink from the available options. However, you’re still limited by what the airline is willing to offer. On a private jet charter, you can request your food, beverages, and entertainment options. You can choose whatever you want so long as you give the private jet charter enough notice so that they can prepare.
Private Jet Charters Are Private
As the name suggests, a private jet charter is a private flight. This means that only you, members of your party, and the crew are on the flight. On a commercial flight, even in first class, you still have to be on the flight with other passengers, who could be noisy or rude. There could be crying babies and rowdy children. With the COVID-19 pandemic still ongoing, the more people you’re near, the more potential points of contact you could have with the virus, even if everyone on board is required to wear masks. On a private jet charter, there are many fewer people on the plane and the crew will be masked for your safety whenever they’re in contact with you.
You Can Choose Your Private Jet
When you fly via private jet charter, you can choose the type of plane on which you fly. You can choose the model as well as the size of your private jet charter. If you fly first class, you have no input into the size or type of the plane. Some commercial flights might not have first-class at all.
