It’s sometimes a misconception that all private jets are flying palaces in the sky. Yes there are some of the larger aircraft that look like Liberace has designed the interior. More often than not the aircraft are basic but comfortable. Most of clients who use jets for business see them more as a time saving tool, rather than a luxury aircraft.

Luggage

It’s important to choose the right aircraft, with the right luggage capacity space for your journey. As you would expect smaller aircraft such as the Citation Mustang, will have very limited baggage space.

Luggage on smaller aircraft is limited

Mid size aircraft have a decent amount of space for your luggage, we recommend that you travel with soft baggage not hard suitcases so that it’s easier to pack. The Learjet 45 and the Citation Excel aircraft are extremely good for carrying golf equipment, skis or other bulky items due to their spacious luggage compartments.

On the larger ultra long range jets, baggage is not really an issue, plenty of space for luggage and any other belongings you need to travel with. The amount of luggage that can be taken on a private jet depends on the size of the aircraft and the number of passengers flying. So for a small jet we would recommend that baggage is limited to one per passenger per seat plus cabin luggage.

What we never want to do is charter an aircraft for you that compromises your safety and comfort, so that you don’t need to put luggage in the cabin or the toilet area, so you can’t just nip to the toilet you have to wait until you land.

Smaller Aircraft

The common misconception is that all private jets have lots of room and that they’re spacious. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Many of the smaller aircraft do not have room to stand up or move around the cabin. In fact they can be cramped and uncomfortable to say the least.

However those who fly on them accept that it is a means of being able to fly to smaller airports on their schedule. No delays and they have the flexibility to fly at a time that suits them.

Falcona always let clients know that although the aircraft is cheaper to hire, that they’re small and may not suit their needs. If passengers have a lot of luggage or any of them are really tall this could affect their comfort and the ability of the aircraft.  We recommend that clients nip to the toilet before they set off, as the toilet on smaller aircraft are cramped to say the least.

Flying on smaller private jets such as the Mustang or CJ2 is a cost-effective way to charter a plane. You only get to the comfortable aircraft when you decide to charter a heavy jet such as the Challenger 850. Aircraft like these allow you to stand up and move around the cabin freely.

There are no flight attendants available on small aircraft, however on larger aircraft they are standard and able to serve you food and drinks during the flight adding to the enjoyment of your flight.

Sleep

A restful nights sleep can be key to arriving at your destination ready and refreshed. On-board the ultra long range private jets the cabins come equipped with comfortable beds to promote sleep and beat jet-lag and travel fatigue.

Divans turn into beds for those longer flights, making your journey more comfortable

Enjoy lie-flat comfort on ultra long range aircraft, seats can convert into a flat bed and you can also adjust your seat to suit your own comfort and preferences. Plenty of space to stretch your legs out without having to worry about the person in front of you.

Crossing time zones and spending long periods of time in the air shouldn’t make managing your sleep a challenge and this is one of the main reasons why a private jet is better than a scheduled business or first class flight. Stretch out in total comfort and privacy in luxury surroundings. Perfect for long distance flights such as London to Lagos or New York to Dubai.

Enjoy the pleasure of being served meals that meet your gourmet wishes, prepared by experienced chefs. You can look forward to multiple courses on long haul flights with complimentary champagne and vintage wines along with other beverages and snacks.
