How were these companies chosen or did they pay to be in this publication?

We do not accept paid editorial content in Business Jet Traveler. This list, like the other directories in our Buyers' Guide, includes a sampling of providers that we consider notable. Our lists are not meant to be comprehensive but we are always open to suggestions for additions.—Jeff Burger, Editor

Dear Jeff, I have been a NetJets fractional owner for sometime and in recent years bought into the Paramount Jet card for additional lift. They have been providing us with great service at reduced rates.

I have used Jetsuite for the last two years and find their service quite good. They should be included in your listing. Previously I was both an owner and card member at Citation Shares.

That company is included in our directory of charter operators, where we mention its membership program.—Jeff Burger, Editor

I think what you should do is break up these companies by who is a operator, a broker...who is focused on a national level, local level. Then explain the difference between them- most people don't know the difference between an operator or a broker. Then go into who requires a down payment, what it is on average- do they have peak days? do they charge for deadheads? Are they guaranteed? What is their safety rating?

If you want to talk with someone about all the differences please let me know- all jet cards are not created equally and it depends on a persons lifestyle and needs.
