Manchester to Cagliari on Legacy 500

Falcona organised a private jet charter flight on a Embraer Legacy 500 super mid-size aircraft for a family of 6 to Cagliari. They were looking to spend a week in Cagliari and wanted to fly private due to COVID19.

“Morning, my friend gave me your details, interested in a price for a private jet northwest any to Cagliari in Sardinia, best MC.

Hi 22nd out and 29th back. Six people 2 adults and 4 children. Could be flex the return date to the Sunday tho”.

Hi MC, ok thanks will do. As it’s very busy on Sat it may be the only slot we have is 8.30am departure, if that’s ok. Would need to be at the terminal for 7.45am. Will try and get 9am for you and confirm soon as possible.

“I am thinking 1000 depart Manc on 22nd then 1600 depart Cagliari Sardinia on the 29th. Looking at the Legacy 500. Also we would need 20/22kg each of baggage but i am assuming that would be okay in the larger plane?”

I have never booked a private jet before so i have a few questions;

1. How soon before the flight do we need to be at airport?

2 How fixed are the times you have quoted.

3. Any baggage weight restrictions –

Hi, You would need to be at the airport 30 – 45 minutes prior to departure. It’s up to you what time you would prefer to fly, morning or afternoon.

Yes, on smaller aircraft usually 1 medium size (15kg) case/bag per person. Soft bags/cases preferred. On larger aircraft such as Legacy 500, would be able to hold approximately 10 medium cases.

Catering on smaller aircraft is generally sandwiches, wraps, fresh fruit, canapes etc as no onboard heating appliances. Larger aircraft with stand up cabin will have a flight attendant. Hot food is served during the flight.

A transfer has been booked for tomorrow.  Pick up will be approx 7.15am – 7.30am Will message you the car reg and driver name.

Crew Feedback 

Hi Falcona,

Your clients were delivered safely and efficiently to Cagliari.

The family were simply a delight to carry. As we learned this was their first flight in this sector and so many questions about the aircraft as you can imagine, especially from the youngest boy who had literally watched all Legacy 500 videos on You Tube before his flight. Him and his brother came to the flight deck before starting and during the cruise.

The flight was very smooth and clear throughout the 2:20 flight (2:35 block) offering great views especially during the descent in the Cagliari. All enjoyed a lovely breakfast service by Kris accompanied by a glass of bubbly for mum and dad.

I’ve briefed the crew for their return flight on what to expect, and what they like etc.

Was great to operate for you again today, any questions my details are below, call me any time.

Best regards.
