Private Jet Charter: If the price is too good to be true, it might be

The recent JetLux indictment alleging over $2 million in credit card fraud may have been enabled by bargain hunting customers

Private jet charter brokers are often harangued for not having to disclose their mark-ups. The assertion is they are charging whatever the market will support, and savvy customers can negotiate better deals.

Several websites have launched in recent years connecting consumers directly with jet operators, ostensibly cutting out the middleman or at least the commissions. They claim to offer wholesale pricing making money via membership fees.

Of course, if you use them, you need to be experienced enough to know what questions you should be asking the operators to ferret out the flowers from the weeds.

JetSmarter is putting a push on full aircraft charter; Here are four reasons to be wary…and where JetSmarter says we were wrong!

JetSmarter

After moving its shared flight program from free seats to paid and scheduled flights to a crowdsourcing model, JetSmarter apparently wants to focus on being a charter broker

12.4.2018 – Editor’s Note:  After publishing this article, Sergey Petrossov, CEO of JetSmarter, reached out to me to say he didn’t think the article provided a fair view of the company’s on-demand charter program. Normally, I would contact a company with questions before publishing, but after being told three times over the past two-and-a-half months JetSmarter wasn’t going to answer my questions, I didn’t bother. The article was also designed to highlight four places I saw shortcomings in their offerings. However, I have happily integrated Petrossov’s responses to my points in red and as always welcome any critiques people have on what I publish.”

Despite mounting lawsuits, JetSmarter is now more aggressively marketing full aircraft charters, apparently trying to compete with a host of online and offline brokers. While the sharing economy private jet provider has always sold full aircraft charters, it recently began displaying options for full aircraft charters when searching for flights, which are now apparently nearly all built on a crowdsourcing model as opposed to its previous model of having scheduled private jet flights to book by the seat.
