Cost of business jet type rating

You can take ONE cabin bag per person on board. That’s just enough space for a couple of nights away. There’s no weight limit but we do ask that you are able to lift it into the overhead locker.

Cabin space is limited and there’s only room for up to 70 cabin bags so the overhead lockers fill up quickly. All remaining cabin bags will be put into the hold and can be collected from the baggage carousel on arrival in the terminal.

We check bag sizes before you board. If they’re bigger than the maximum 56x45x25cm (including handles and wheels), they can’t go in the cabin and we’ll have to check them into the aircraft hold for a charge. See bags table for details on  fees and charges  dedicated page.

A few days ago, I published Part 1 of the series on buying prepaid private jet travel titled, “Before You Buy A Private Jet Card Read This. ” This series is based on my research, and the fact that there are so many variances between programs (I found over 60 in the 75 programs I analyzed), it got so unwieldy I put them into spreadsheets and eventually the above-mentioned website, because truth be told, even covering the various differences in this series of articles isn’t as easy as looking at spreadsheets.

“One thing I do not see addressed (although possibly you had planned on doing so in future installments) is the fact that most Jet Card programs have an hourly cost far, far higher than the hourly rates a local charter operator would charge for the same class of aircraft.”

“In addition, I would never tie up $100,000 to $150,000 or more in ‘prepaid’ travel; there’s an opportunity cost involved. I could be making more money actively investing those funds, rather than letting the Jet Card company make money off my prepaid funds. In my humble opinion, Jet Cards are a ripoff for the uninformed.”
