SunwingJets - New Private Jet Service

#1 Post by Pratt X 3 » Mon Oct 23, 2017 5:18 pm

First saw this on the Facebook. Thought it was a joke or fake news. But guess it is real. At least we know the Champagne Service on this product will be real Champagne! :D

Not sure how many of Sunwings "regular" clients will be able to afford this

I’m guessing most didn’t read the fine print....

Yes, they are essentially a booking agent. There are many operations out there that sell seats on corporate jets, or all the seats for one way. This kind of thing is quite large in the US.

I’m familiar, in fact im in a course with a Delta Private Jets pilot as we type. My comment was more towards the above that seemed to be on the track that Sunwing would have their own division with their own airplanes like DPJ, but actually using Flightexec aircraft.

"Sunwang" That's pretty cute JohnnyNotRocks, but based on Sunwing's prior performance, my guess is this is going to be a good revenue stream for them. Have you used your time machine to see any different? ;-)

Ooops...typo
Took it to 88mph the other day....nothing happened

Sunwing offers a low cost vacation alternative....just pointing out that their typical passengers don't usual have the money to charter a Falcon 900

Don't need a time machine but just a little time spent in this area of the industry to see that this marketing gimmick won't be as successful as you seem to think. It's not like there are a bunch of people out there with the means to charter saying to themselves, "Finally, all that was missing was a fancy new website for me to start chartering. Thank you SunwingJets for opening my eyes!" If they got the money, they already have someone they go to for charter. If that website is still working by the end of next summer, I'll be surprised!

How is this any different than chartering a Flightexec aircraft directly, except that Sunwing takes a cut as middleman? I can't see why either the customer or the operator would be enticed by this deal.

I guess they're trying to attract redneck lotto winners or the "nouveau riche" that have more money than brains. Might as well just walk into an fbo and ask for a jet charter.

I figure this comes from one of two things. Either they turn away a lot of calls from people looking for more upscale travel and they figure they may as well get a piece of that pie, or they're speculating that will happen and might be shot down by their low cost vacations image.

Exposure.....we are in aviation and know about these things. The vast majority of people have no idea what an FBO is nor do they have any idea how to “rent a plane”. It is a very logical step for both parties because Sunwing has the exposure and the marketing to back them.
