Private Jet Rental vs. First Class Commercial Pricing

By

The differences between traveling by private jet and commercial airline are countless, the two are almost incomparable in any way. The shocking place you will find similarities is in the price. Yes, you read that correctly. When a private jet is filled to capacity with 8 or more passengers, the cost is surprisingly similar to paying for a first class ticket for every passenger in your party.

On average, a first class ticket flying coast to coast is priced in the range of $2,000 per passenger. With 8 passengers you are now spending $16,000 to make the flight on an aircraft full of strangers, excess luggage, and limited leg room. The cost of an 8 passenger mid size private jet flying coast to coast will typically be priced in the range of $18,000-$22,000 USD for the very same route. When you consider all of the perks included in traveling by private jet, the nominal price difference per passenger pales in comparison to what you gain when it comes to comfort, flexibility, privacy, and luxury.

When you fly by private jet you are never pinned down to commercial airline schedules, you can enjoy the flexibility to arrive at the airport when you’re ready to leave and always expect to find your jet and crew waiting for you. Upon arrival, you will never find a long TSA security line, rather, you will be personally escorted to your waiting aircraft by your friendly crew member while FBO staff carries your luggage. Speaking of luggage, you will never pay an extra bag fee again when you choose to fly private.

Once on board your aircraft, you will select your own seat and find your pre-ordered gourmet catering waiting and ready for you to enjoy. Meals will be cooked perfectly to your preference and served by your crew once you have reached altitude. If you have personal business to attend to or simply want to talk about last night’s party, you will be confident that your conversations are kept strictly between passengers aboard the jet. Without strangers seated just inches away, you can speak freely as you make your way across the country, snore while you nap without fear of judgment, and wipe the drool from your lip without wondering if your pesky neighbor snapped a photo while you slumbered.

Your private flight can be 100% personalized to your specifications. If you prefer beige leather seats, a two place divan, and must have your favorite scotch on the rocks served immediately upon boarding, you can be certain that is exactly what you will find.
