Big City Private Jet Alternates

The 2 biggest cities in the Unites States of America are by far New York and Los Angeles. These cities are very different from one another but they do share a lot in common. With so many people living in New York and Los Angeles, it creates commuter transportation havoc. Not only on the busy roads of Manhattan or Hollywood but it also creates a huge amount of airport congestion.

Jet Charter Los Angeles

There is little solution to the airport congestion there is a solution though to avoiding the busy airports. New York has 3 very busy airports, although one is situated in New Jersey it is still a very close access point to New York and Manhattan in particular. The 3 airports are JFK, La Guardia and Newark. Los Angeles has the very famous and very busy LAX.

A-listers, celebrities, high level politicians and businessmen of note have been avoiding these airports for years. They have been avoiding these airports by flying private jet charter into smaller airports with similar or just-as-good access points to Los Angeles and New York City.

The best option for flying into New York City with private jet charter is to request a flight that lands in Teterboro. Teterboro is brilliantly placed to give a busy person or a person who seeks utmost privacy, quick and easy access to all 5 boroughs of New York City.

The best alternative for accessing Los Angeles while avoiding LAX is to fly into Van Nuys Airport. Van Nuys is extremely close to Hollywood, perhaps even closer than LAX and gives travelers superb access to downtown Los Angeles and Burbank.

For service to or from Teterboro or Van Nuys airport you should get in touch with ElJet. ElJet maintains exclusive relationships with Teterboro and Van Nuys jet owners to ensure passengers get the best planes at the best prices.

The Emirates A380 Experience

Anyone that has ever flown long distance would know that it is something to dread more than excite over. The Emirates trip from Los Angeles to Dubai and then from Dubai to Los Angeles is around 16 hours. Think about that for a moment and let that sink in. It spans the length of an average adults entire waking day. Mix some time zone changes in there and it really is an abnormally long flight.

The Airbus A380

Most people know of the Airbus A380 but Emirates really does go above and beyond to ensure a great flight experience. The on-flight entertainment is superb, there is a huge amount of variety and a great assortment of box sets to help pass the flying time. Another thing to note, like everything else about the Airbus A380, the screens even in economy class are huge. Really big and of really good quality, not grainy or blurry like some other commercial airlines.

The Staff

It takes a huge amount of staff to staff a 16 hour flight and to keep the amount of passengers on a plane of that magnitude happy. After stepping off the flight, it really is hard to fathom that some people do that flight as a job on a consistent basis. The Emirates staff are wonderful though. Of many nationalities and speaking more languages than anyone could care to think of, they really do go above and beyond to ensure that the travelers are comfortable.

The Plane

The magnitude of the plane is mainly felt when you are outside of it, when boarding or deplaning. Once on board, it really does have the feel and make up of any more regular sized A-380, which I guess is good. The ride is very smooth and once cruising, I know that it is weather dependent but the ride was really smooth.


Los Angeles

Los Angeles has plenty to offer. It is the hub of America’s multi-billion dollar entertainment industry. Los Angeles also has a large and bustling downtown area where many corporations do very big business and of course Los Angeles is a tourists delight. There are many exquisite beach front vacation with in a stone’s throw of Los Angeles. Los Angeles also has a vibrant nightlife with many day time activities, adventures and amusement parks for family outings.

Airport Codes

Every airport has its own unique three or four letter code that helps  air traffic controllers, travelers and pilots identify it.  Airport codes help avoid confusion and mistakes.  There are two types of airport codes that are used: IATA and ICAO.

IATA (International Air Transportation Association):  Airport Codes are three-letter codes that are most commonly used by the public when booking flights.  Also known as IATA location identifiers, or IATA station codes, these three letter classifications are typically used by flight booking websites, and prominently displayed on baggage tags and at airport check-in desks.  Some IATA codes are so well known by the public that they have replaced the full, proper name of the airport, for example LAX and JFK.

ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization): Airport codes are four-letter identifiers that are more commonly used internationally than the IATA iteration.  These airport codes are used by air traffic control and airline operations, and are typically derived from the region and country where the airport is located.

How to find Airport Codes

 You will need to know the  Airport Codes for your destination when booking domestic or international flights. Most major ones can be found on popular travel websites.
