Private Jets vs. Commercial Airlines – Lido Jets Private Jet Charter

By .

We’ve all endured the nightmare that commercial air travel has become. Long security lines, intrusive TSA pat downs, uncomfortable seats, impolite ticket attendants, and lengthy flight delays are only a few of the complaints heard around the world. Commercial airlines have been in the news recently, and shockingly enough, it isn’t all great news for the air traveler. The crew of an Asiana Airlines flight recently crash landed a Boeing 777 on SFO’s international runway.

The crash was a terrible tragedy to say the least. It has been alleged that the captain of the aircraft was flying with a mere 43 hours experience in that jet type, not enough time to be given control of an aircraft for 11 hours and carrying 295 precious lives on board. While the cause of the crash is still under investigation, it is frightening to think that a commercial flight crew can take your life in their hands without any type of disclosure about the inexperience of your crew.

Fortunately, Lido Jets provides a superior travel experience – with boutique style private jet travel personalized to your needs, and full service concierge service 24/7/365. When it comes to private jet travel, not only will you be treated as the VIP that you truly are, but information regarding both your aircraft and crew will always be disclosed to you prior to your flight. With innovative third party audit companies such as Argus and Wyvern – information about part 135 private air carriers and their crews are being provided to passengers quickly and easily. Beyond this, part 135 private jet operators are required to adhere to strict regulations relating to their aircraft and crews. These include type rating for each specific aircraft type and no fewer than 1,500 logged pilot hours for the captain of any flight. (Click here for a complete listing of requirements)
