Working with Stratos vs other jet charter companies lends a personal touch that seems lacking in others. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stratos to friends.

5 1 5 04/13/2017

None. My experience with Strosjets honestly couldn't have been better

5 1 5 12/10/2016

Garrett is fantastic to work with. He is kind, responsive and you can tell he really cares about his customers. I worked with a different company on our way to our destination because Garrett could not find a plane. The agent at that company did not compare favorably to Garrett. I would highly recommend Garrett.

Stratos takes the complicated process of private air charter and makes it simple. They have helped me through the process and Joel even turned down my offer for purchasing a Pre-paid Jet card because he advised that it would not be a good fit for my home airport and family lifestyle. I shortly became a client after that because that experience was indicative of the company's overall honesty and great ethos. We have Chartered with Joel on multiple occasions and always get the the 3Gs of private air travel - Great Safety, Great Plane & Great Price. Stratos is a great company and they put your safety 1st and make the process easy. You can text or call them at anytime and their response time is amazing. You truly feel special. Flying on chartered planes is something we really value and keep very personal and discrete. Joel assists us in keeping the experience special and within our schedule and budget. I recommend Stratos to friends who have jet cards, fractional ownership and 1st timers alike. If you are considering charter, the 1st call to make is to Stratos. They never pressure you and value the relationship. I can not say enough about this team - A great experience!

5 1 5 10/14/2019

Stratos Jets has always been a great company to work with, very friendly staff.

5 1 5 02/12/2014

No improvements needed.

5 1 5 05/09/2017

Having used many charter companies before with mixed experiences, I can say with confidence that Stratos has the best service and highest level of professionalism of any of the charter services I have encountered. Most recently, we had an unfortunate last minute cancellation of a charter booked through another service, and Stratos came through at the last minute to find the right plane at the right price for us with under 24 hour notice. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism as well as their willingness and ability to go above and beyond to find the right charter for us - even as a first time customer.

5 1 5 10/24/2023

Cannot recommend Stratos strongly enough. Our pilots were superb. They dropped us into 07FA onto a wet runway that a lot of pilots would have diverted for but the new grooved runway and pilot skill had us safely on the ground and taxiing after using way less than half the runway. The Citation Sovereign was in tip top condition. We will definitely use Stratos again.

5 1 5 10/31/2022

Good communication between Stratos and me regarding the jet being on site on ready for departure. Plenty of advance notice with the updates. This made my planning much easier.

5 1 5 12/21/2021

Never left a review in our life but for the amount of money spent - really left a sour taste in our mouth. Complete lack of organization with plane in wrong FBO for departure, $1,000 rental car at wrong airport on arrival, just not nearly the level of service expected when spending over $10K for an hour and half hop -

5 1 5 05/15/2023

great from start to finish!

5 1 5 02/25/2012

Everything was perfect - nothing to improve. Many thanks to Richard Gomulka for his assistance - he was great!

5 1 5 02/17/2020

Always there to take care of any problem that arise. Professional quality cost effective service

5 1 5 07/03/2019

Good experience, although your emails sometimes look more as a marketing email than an itinerary revision. Still getting used to the sales force platform, but if I may give you guys a feed back, try to avoid too many colors and pictures on the email as they sometimes look like marketing/sales email then important information about the trip. That's my 2 cents.

5 1 5 12/15/2020

The trip was excellent, the aircraft new, clean and confortable. The staff really did the best to make the best possible experience. Will definitely fly again with you

5 1 5 08/19/2021

Zach, was phenomenal from beginning to end! What was taking me a half-day to do Zach was able to complete efficiently in a few hours. He periodically made the process as smooth as possible, not to mention giving hourly updates. I would say that Stratos has a customer for life. Zach enjoys and loves what he does and it shows in his work ethic! Thank you!

5 1 5 09/24/2020

From the moment we arrived at your facility where one employee came to greet us and take our luggage to the friendliness of the pilots and their updates during the flight to the thank you by the pilots after arrival, Stratos was wonderful. The one item that I realize is out of your control is the Signature waiting area at EYW. When we left, there was a family of 5 without masks. Masks are required. When we returned, the same experience, a group of 2 couples without masks were laughing and not maintaining social distancing.

5 1 5 12/28/2013

None that I can think of.  Great flight

5 1 5 05/20/2021

Yes, Excellent, Excellent, Yes

5 1 5 03/23/2020

Glenn was excellent to work with. I spoke with several charter companies before choosing Stratos. Glenn is the reason I chose Stratos Jet to bring my elderly parents home during the initial break of the COVID-19. He was professional, knowledgeable and on top of every detail. This was our first experience with a charter flight and Glenn explained the entire process from start to finish which helped me keep my anxiety in check. My parents flew from Florida to Ohio without any issues. They said the aircraft crew were professional and confident and made them feel safe. The plane was basic, cabin was small so it was a little challenging for older people with limited mobility. My parents are short, 5'4 and 5'1 and both had to duck down to get on and off the plane and while inside the cabin. That being said, we were given the option of a more luxurious cabin but chose not to spend the extra money. Stratos took care of getting my elderly parents home quickly, safely and allowed us to minimize the risks of commercial flying at this time.

5 1 5 05/08/2021

Always great to work with the amazing team at Stratos Jets! Kyle was awesome!

5 1 5 02/03/2022

Great experience on a nice small private jet.

5 1 5 06/08/2022

The pilots were very kind and understanding. We had enough luggage capacity but the jet itself I thought was a little less luxurious than what I had imagined. All in all it was a good trip.

5 1 5 12/27/2016

As a several time repeat customer, I highly recommend Stratos!

5 1 5 09/12/2017

Joel was a great help in getting my family out of South Florida last minute during hurricane Irma. I look forward to booking with Stratos again in the very near future.

5 1 5 03/30/2010

Thank you for making this very easy for us!! I look forward to a long relationship with Stratos Jet Charter!!

5 1 5 02/24/2021

Everyone was great, from Steve who got us started, to the flight support team, and to the crew. Everything went smoothly and I'd highly recommend Stratos to anyone looking to charter a flight.

5 1 5 03/26/2020

Picture perfect. If I had one small complaint it was the outbound plane had no water in the bathroom

5 1 5 07/03/2022

Always a great experience. Amazing communication and expert service

5 1 5 05/03/2018

I travel regularly for business and have booked charter flights through a number of different private jet companies. At the beginning of the year, I was referred to Joel at Stratos. Since then, I have booked a number of flights through Stratos. His team does a great job ensuring we have a seamless travel experience. I would definitely recommend Stratos to others.

5 1 5 07/24/2017

The Stratos Jet Charter team provides a seamless & top notch experience from beginning to end. They are a forward thinking company that puts the customer first and never disappoints with any trip or itinerary. I recently booked a short flight from Orlando to Boca Raton on a Falcon 2000EX and could not have been happier with the service and attention to detail that was provided for my wife, myself and the rest of our companions. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

5 1 5 05/21/2020

Glenn made booking easy and was on top of every detail throughout the process. The flight itself was flawless. Many thanks.

5 1 5 04/14/2020

Always a pleasure working with Stratos Jets. Never have had a bad experience.

5 1 5 02/21/2022

Always great to work with you guys!

5 1 5 11/10/2017

Great experience

5 1 5 11/18/2017

I did have a good experience dealing with the charter staff. The only suggestion I can make would be that when sending revised itineraries or updated information is that somehow you reference what is new or updated info. Either in the email or by highlighting the NEW info. Thank you for using Oak Air.

5 1 5 05/18/2023

Everything was lovely, no hiccups. One piece of advice, when travelling to Turks and Caicos, make sure you have a clear address for your destination. The customs officer held us for twenty-five minutes trying to figure out where we were staying. That was a little frustrating, but it all worked out. We will most definitely use Stratos for our next trip.

5 1 5 03/16/2020

Simon makes everything easy. He gets back to you immediately and efficiently!! The plane was gorgeous. All in all a perfect experience.

5 1 5 01/10/2022

Glenn made booking effortless, pilots made it a great flight and yes, I would recomend to a friend.

5 1 5 07/19/2021

From start to finish everything was perfect. Steve Stogner was awesome, professional, efficient, great follow up . Our pax’s said “ absolutely loved the experience, great pilots, beautiful aircraft “

5 1 5 10/17/2018

Heather was an important part of my chose in Stratos.

5 1 5 12/17/2016

Our VP's had a wonderful trip and great experience. Your staff is professional, welcoming, easy to work with and I look forward to working with them again. Thank you!

5 1 5 01/04/2021

This was my 3rd trip with Stratosjets and all travel were arranged by Kyle Jones. Everything was efficiently and professionally done, and Kyle and the team were always prompt and responsive. I definitely will recommend the team to friends. Thank you.

5 1 5 01/09/2022

My daughter was the passenger and she enjoyed her experience. This trip was vital to make it possible to go to her residence in Germany.

5 1 5 03/27/2024

I've had 3 round trips with Stratos and except for a little fog on one leg everything was always great! The pilots were all awesome! StratosJets is a very dedicated company to make sure everything is safe and sound.

5 1 5 07/14/2020

5 1 5 03/01/2018

I had the pleasure to work with Joel on a last minute trip needed to transport several professional athletes to an event. Joel was fast-acting and completely professional every step of the way. He sent constant updates to make sure our trip needs were met every step of the way. I would recommend Joel and Stratos to anybody looking to book private jets who also values professionalism and accountability.

5 1 5 10/18/2012

Since it was my first charter I have no comparisons

5 1 5 10/30/2017

Joel and Stratos are amazing! He made sure our flight was tailored perfectly and was very responsive and always available for contact. They catered specifically to our needs with late notice. The pilots were fantastic and patient, especially considering we had three animals and arrived 10 minutes before take-off. They provided the smoothest flight in the Hawker we’ve ever taken. Stratos offered transportation to and from; the boarding process was welcoming and convenient. We will only fly privately with Stratos Jets through Joel and his team. Thank you guys for everything!

5 1 5 08/23/2013

Kevin is great to work with. I'll call him again. the aircraft crew were great. Thank you for making this trip so easy for us.
