While jet card programs have become more restrictive over the past 18 months, for flyers who need shorter lead times to book, there are still options

Yes, jet card memberships are more restrictive. For a decade, a multitude of jet cards gave the option to book flights with fixed rates and guaranteed availability 24 hours – or less – before departure. That’s changed. However, there are still options.

The good news is there are options in both the U.S. and Europe.

However, you won’t see callouts of 10 or 8 hours, as we did pre-Covid.

Of note, both FlyExclusive and Magellan provide 24-hour booking windows. However, they charge a premium.

For NetJets, in the U.S., it requires a 25-hour lease for a minimum of three years in duration. Their current U.S. card program is 48 hours, non-peak.

And speaking of peak days, we also included the current number of peak days for each provider.

In total, there are ten options (see chart above).
