Private jets afford flyers the ability to maintain a greater degree of normalcy while still traveling to accommodate their career of choice. Commercial airlines are inconvenient; the traveler has to adhere to the schedule of the airline. With private jets, the traveler(s) are able to make their own schedule and that means considerably less time spent away from home.
Another great benefit is that most business jets these days are equipped with technologies that are not available on commercial flights. These technologies afford the traveler the luxury of working enroute. Additionally, travelers don’t spend any considerable amount of time in airports dealing with security lines, checking in for flights, dealing with checking in baggage (and additional baggage issues) and simply waiting, waiting, and more waiting. Last, but certainly not least, private jets of this magnitude often have seating configurations that convert into full-sized, rather comfortable, beds. If you choose to nap during flight then you can do so peacefully!
Although the actual price tag is certainly larger than commercial fares, the quality of travel, the use of time, and the airports serviced (including smaller airports in more rural areas) are priceless to some travelers.
