Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

Private Jets

Imagine flying in an eye-catching private jet featured with ultra-modern amenities. As a first-time flyer, you must be thrilled to be a part of this experience. Maybe, you are feeling slightly nervy about the rules that need to be followed while onboard. Are you wondering about the jet etiquettes (politesse) that need to be followed while flying a private jet? Then, here are some tips that can help you enjoy your flying experience with composure.

1. Dressing chic

It feels good to be mindful of the way you present yourself. And, dressing appropriately for the private flying is appreciated. Flying for business? Then, dressing formally may help.

2. Arrive on time and park appropriately

A commercial flight has rules like arriving around two hours early. And, flying on a private jet this is reduced to around 30 minutes. In the context of time, some private jets may extend flexibility, but arriving on time is valued. Also, remember to use the designated parking area for parking cars.

3. Packing light

Private jets have luggage weight restrictions. So, travel light, pack absolute essentials and bring only one bag (as specified).

4. Carry identification

Flyers do not have to stand in long security clearance lines, but it is necessary to carry identification including a valid ID, or a passport (whilst flying internationally).

5. Drink and eat responsibly

Excited about the food and beverages on board? Treat yourself with food and beverages on the flight, but also be mindful against overindulgence. In case, you are allergic to specific food or have some diet restrictions, intimate the crew in advance.

6. Capture photos respecting privacy

Be discreet while videotaping or photo-shooting your aviation experience, respecting the privacy of fellow travelers.

7. Follow Pet-iquettes

Want to fly with your adorable pets? Then, focus on aspects like grooming of your furry friend, and carrying the necessary documents.

Birthday

Who wouldn’t love celebration cakes, candles, and champagne service, on their special day? It could be a birthday, an anniversary, or a honeymoon, and flying on a special day should remain as exciting. Imagine the glow when you see your loved one enjoy the customized surprise. If that’s exciting, then remember that some airlines offer secret services to enhance the journey. The services may differ between the airlines and also depend on the class being flown in.

Myriad airlines offer a multitude of in-flight services. Emirates airlines offer a cake and champagne service, and the cake can be customized depending on the occasion. Is it free for the economy class? At times airlines charge additionally for the service for the economy class, while the business class may get the service for free. Also, flyers need to note that the service needs to be requested for, 24 hours before departure.

Cathay Pacific reportedly has the cake service (that can be customized), which needs to be pre-ordered and is written on their website at a cost of £30. And, Singapore Airlines extends delightful treats like fresh cream cake, champagne, or souvenir teddies, as a part of celebrations on the special occasion.

Some other airlines offer additional services including food, drinks, or a happy birthday song. And, some travelers have been reported to have received a free upgrade for their birthday, depending on the space on the aircraft.

Researching on the services offered by airlines can help with the little something extra, which can not only make the day special but make flying a whole lot more exciting.
