Traveling With Pets Makes Every Flight Better

Traveling with pets on commercial airlines can be challenging these days.  More and more pet owners are opting to use charter flights for traveling with their pets.  Most private aircraft allow animals on board in the cabin.  Not only do pet owners get to enjoy the company of their furry friends but they can also be assured that their pets are properly cared for, fed and not stressed out.

Each individual country and commercial airline has specific rules on where and how pets can accompany passengers on flights.  It is often a requirement for dogs, cats and other animals to be placed below the aircraft in the cargo or baggage area where they are essentially treated like luggage.  This can create a number of different problems and even bring harm to the animals.

As many pet owners know, it is common for dogs stress levels to increase during unfamiliar situations.  Some animals are prescribed medicine by veterinarians but medication for anxiety is usually administered at the first signs of stress and dosages are increased based on the observed behavior of the animal.  In addition, the presence of a pet’s owner is sometimes the best way to comfort dogs when they are in distress.  When a dog is forced to travel in the cargo area, owners are not able to observe and react accordingly to their behavior.

Discussing The Nice Ride


The conditions in the cargo area of an aircraft can be another cause of injury and fatality of pets traveling via commercial airlines.  The reason this compartment of an aircraft is called the “cargo area” is because that is exactly what it is meant to carry, cargo.  Temperatures can reach extreme highs and lows and in many cases there is nothing keeping animal carrying cases in place.  Poor ventilation, low oxygen levels and turbulence are also to blame for such unfortunate incidents.

The fact is, even commercial airlines that claim to be “pet friendly” are not immune to these unfortunate occurrences.  Commercial airlines deal with huge volumes of people, pets, luggage, cargo, mail and are often running on a tight schedule.  Oversight is not uncommon and the airline employees simply do not have the resources to properly care for your pets.

The Top 3 Mediterranean Luxury Travel Destinations (Where Nobody Can Find You)

When you are headed for the Mediterranean, sun is easy to come by these days. Sand is a bit more scarce but still no problem. Privacy? That’s a different story. Some of the best Mediterranean travel destinations– such as the island of Mykonos in Greece or the Costa del Sol in Spain – are now overrun with tourists. The best simply is not the best if you are fighting for elbow room. Travelers who need a break from the hectic world now need to look for the best resorts that are also the hardest to get to using commercial flights. Luckily, we’ve been there. The easiest way to access some of the most desirable destinations is by traveling via turbo prop, helicopter or private jet charter. Here is an introduction to the top three Mediterranean luxury travel vacation destinations that take a little extra work to find and reward you with some highly exclusive memories.

Zakynthos, Greece

If you can’t pronounce it, it’s a good bet people can’t find you. To really get away from it all, and see a Greek island the way it used to be 50 years ago, charter a flight to the bottom of the Ionian isles. Europeans call the island Zante to avoid all those other vowels. Porto Zante was voted the Best Greek Hideaway by Conde Nast, partly because it is only discoverable by Mediterranean charter flights. You will be stunned speechless by just how blue the Blue Ege can be when it is untroubled by tourists.

Agay, France

Of course, you’ll visit Monte Carlo and the Cinque terre someday, but the French/Italian Riviera doesn’t have to be synonymous with claustrophobia. Forget the Cote d’Azur airport where all the big jets land. Grab a private jet charter in Europe and fly discretely into the Cannes Mandelieu Airport. From there you can get a private car to take you about 15 miles outside of Cannes to the walled gardens of Dominique Villas. From your own private villa perched on a promontory, you can climb down a ladder down to the sandy beach and sunbathe among the rocks like a true rock star.

Menorca, Spain

Celebrities flock to Ibiza to party away from the prying flashes of paparazzi. Those who only want peace and quiet go to the nearby island of Menorca. As the name indicates, it is smaller than Majorca and much more laid back. There are major airlines that can get you there via local carriers you’ve never heard of, like Air Nostrum, but off season the crowds are out of luck without a charter flight. The Cala’n Bosch Luxury Resort in Son Xoriguer takes the prize for the world’s best paella with a side of solitude. Check out Conde Naste’s Insider’s Guide to Menorca for more information on beaches, dining and hotels on the island.

CNBC Delivering Alpha, Carl Icahn, Bill Ackman and their Private Jets.

This past week on a special CNBC Delivering Alpha, Billionaire Activist Carl Icahn spoke about several topics such as Dell, Netflix, Herbal Life and Bill Ackman. During the segment, Carl Icahn was making a point that many fund managers are not in touch with what is going on in the streets. He made a comment that Bill Ackman probably owns a private jet. “He lives all over the world. He’s got a jet plane, a boat, I don’t know his personal life but I’d imagine. He’s not in touch with reality.” We decided to research this claim and see if Mr. Icahn was correct in his assumption and indeed he was.

According to Jetnet, an information and reporting service for the business aviation industry, Mr. Ackman owns a Gulfstream G550. The Cost of an aircraft such as this can range anywhere from $32-$49 million USD and carries annual fixed costs of ownership just shy of $5 million USD. We were able to locate pictures of Bill Ackman’s Private Jet which is nothing short of amazing.

According to current Jetnet records Mr. Icahn himself does not currently own a private jet. Jetnet reports that he did own a fraction of a Falcon 2000, similar to the pictures below, but it was sold back to NetJets in 2004.

Private Jet Charters to 2013 MLB All Star Game

This year’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game takes place on July 16, 2013 in New York City at Citi Field, home to the New York Mets. This is the first time the Mets have hosted the Midsummer Classic since 1964.

If you are planning to attend the 2013 MLB All-Star Game, there is no better way to arrive in style than by chartering a private jet. With the game swiftly approaching, commercial flights to New York City often become increasingly limited or must be purchased at incredibly high summer travel rates. If you have never considered a private jet rental, now might be the time to rethink the possibilities. Jet charters are surprisingly more affordable and convenient than previously realized.

Read on to learn how booking a private flight to the 2013 MLB All-Star Games can benefit you.

Time Savings; Privacy; Perks, Amenities and Cost Effectiveness

One of the best things about chartering a private jet is the amount of time you will save. Commercial flights are well known for their long lines, herding people into boarding, extensive security line waits, long baggage check-ins, flight delays, layovers and missed connections.

Flying on a chartered jet allows for a more relaxed and comfortable private flight experience without the hassle. Unlike commercial flights, private jets allow for more flexibility in scheduling as well as freedom from long lines or arriving at an airport hours before your flight.

It can be really exasperating to board an overcrowded plane; typical scenarios include enduring the sounds of crying children, complaining passengers, no leg room and long waits in a lavatory line. Even if you fly first class, this does not mean you are protected from contamination by germs and viruses brought on board by others, you still breathe the same air. Flying on a private jet means lots of leg room, private restroom and getting to fly with people you invited.

Your comfort is a high priority on a private jet charter. Feel free to stretch out and take a nap on your jet, as opposed to commercial flights featuring too-close tight seating arrangements.

Forget about assigned seating near smelly plane toilets, on a private rental, you get to choose where you want to sit. No more flight movie disappointments, on a private jet rental you get to choose the films you want to watch.

Request your favorite food and drinks to be served on board, no more limited in-flight food choices. You always have a place to store your carry-on luggage on a private flight, no more frantic searching for an empty overhead bin to store your carry-on items.

Jet charters can be very cost effective, especially for large groups attending the MLB Games. Most jet charters rent by the hour and are all-inclusive: fuel, crew expenses, airport fees, taxes and ordinary expenditures.

A way to save money on a private jet rental to NY is to consider purchasing an empty leg charter, this happens when a plane is chartered one way leaving the return flight empty. These flights are often offered at discounts to prospective travelers with flexibility on departure times.

Safety Considerations

Feel safe and secure when flying on a private jet charter to the MLB All Star Game. Know that your aircraft is firmly regulated by the FAA with all private pilots and crew bearing proper credentials and experience. Secondly, you are flying with people you are familiar with not strangers who could potentially be unruly or pose a risk to safety.

Airports Near the All-Star Game

Airports in proximity to New York include LaGuardia Airport, John F. Kennedy Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, Teterboro Airport, Wechester County Airport and Republic Airport.
