When you charter on-demand, buy a full aircraft or fractional share, you buy a specific aircraft type. What about jet card membership programs?
In case you haven’t noticed, most jet card programs specify cabin size, then fulfill your needs from a variety of aircraft types in that cabin category. In some cases that’s because you are buying your jet card from a management company and they are clustering all of the aircraft in that cabin size category together. In other cases, it’s a broker program that is sourcing aircraft from charter operators, including management companies and fleet operators. You’ll often see a range of seating for the aircraft that apply to that category, so in the SuperMid category you could get a jet that fits eight people one time and 10 the next. In Large Cabin jets it’s not unusual to see a range of 10 to 14 seats.

The program enables customers to select a renewable one-year term or 20 total flight days they can take up to two years to use.

When flying by private jet, one noticeable difference from flying in a commercial airliner is a lack of headroom. The height of the cabin in the aisle of a Boeing 737 is about 7 feet, 2 inches. The average height of a man is 5 feet, 9 inches while a woman is 5 feet, 4 inches. Out of 112 business jets Private Jet Card Comparisons analyzed, 67 had a height where the average man would need to duck with 37 private jets being the same for women.
