Great experience overall. Communication is always great and solving any unforeseen issues has always been a breeze.

5 1 5 07/19/2017

I have worked with Joel and Stratos Jets for several years and it has always been a pleasure. Most recently they booked a flight from St Petersburg, FL to Sanford, FL to Niagara Falls, NY with us on our Citation CJ1. The experience, as always was flawless and realtime feedback and communication meant the ASAP flight went without a hitch. Thank you Joel and team, I look forward to many more years of business with you.

We had a large family gathering in Santa Barbara to which Frank with Stratos was able to arrange the flight. The plane and pilots were fantastic as was the service leading up to and throughout. I would recommend them to anyone that needs private travel arrangements.

Simon Crhistian did a great job.

5 1 5 08/20/2017

Joel was all over booking our Jet and catering to our every need. He was easy to reach at all times and made arrangements that you would normally have to ask for, just as part of his routine business. He runs Stratos with elite service and I will be a life long customer!

5 1 5 01/08/2023

Great

5 1 5 03/11/2021

Glenn made my first experience with Stratos easy and enjoyable. He went above and beyond to make sure I was completely satisfied and had all the information needed. I appreciated the attention to detail and the follow-up. Thank you

5 1 5 03/20/2020

Glenn was a fantastic resource who provided a comprehensive set of alternatives options, and was very proactive from the booking time to wheels down on arrival, very impressed

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 12/17/2018

I could not ask for more, I love using Stratos and will never use anyone else!

5 1 5 08/07/2017

My experience with Stratos has been very good since I started booking jets several years ago. Joel and his team provide excellent service and followup at every stage. We recently had a flight where the incoming plane had a mechanical and they were able to replace it with a comparable one within just a few hours. Our original take off time was only missed by less than a half hour. The Stratos team communicated with us all along the way and everything was fine. The pilots are very good at what they do and the ground organization is thorough and efficient. I would recommend them to a friend.

5 1 5 05/31/2020

Kyle Jones was terrific about answering all of my questions PROMPTLY. Stratos gave us the best price and was best about getting all info to us. I wrote to Kyle many times as I was extremely nervous about flying. He was always reassuring. Pilots were friendly and professional. Transport people wore masks and gloves and were kind. Plane was very clean and when I asked for more disinfectant wipes, I got them without being made to feel I was being too cautious. Take-off and landing were a pleasure as was the flight. The thunderstorm was scary but that was out of the pilots control

5 1 5 02/20/2021

Would recommend. I gave them a 5 star rating.

5 1 5 12/17/2018

With only a 15 hour window from my 1st request to Joel to wheels up, Stratos provided me with a great plane, rate and service. I texted from overseas and within 30 minutes had a quotations. With 2 hours Joel and his team came back with even better rates and we locked in the Flight! I am always amazed at the service and how they track every detail of the flight and my progress. Even though I am in a second tier city I get amazing flight options with Joel and his team. The equipment was a light jet with brand new soft goods and fantastic pilots. Everyone was super friendly and when you book through Stratos you are treated as an Aircraft owner. Thank you again guys! MAG Pittsburgh, PA

5 1 5 04/02/2018

Competitive pricing and unbelievable customer service, from inquiry to post flight. They make it happen and make it easy. I will not competitive shop again because I have found the best price and service with Stratos.

5 1 5 08/24/2018

Everything great but itineraries always change last minute (tail #, terminal) which has caused problems.

5 1 5 12/26/2018

Not sure I could have asked for more. Joel was responsive and delivered exactly what I needed. The two pilots were incredibly accommodating and made the trip very smooth. Thank you Joel

5 1 5 12/19/2018

From start to finish Glenn was great. He accommodated our various changes and handled everything professionally. The flight was perfect. Pilot and co-pilot were great.

5 1 5 06/27/2023

We did have a slight issue when the plane came in there was a mechanical concern that delayed my parent's trip but Kyle lined up aother plane for us so they could get to their destination with the least amount of inconvenience. The catering was delicious and the flight back went off without a hitch.

5 1 5 10/14/2021

5 1 5 01/01/2018

Once again, Stratos Jets provided perfect travel service with competitive prices! We needed to move a family member with memory loss and agitation from Boston to Houston on very short notice. Joel set everything up within 24 hours- a beautiful private jet, cars and drivers at both ends of the trip, a security detail plus catering. I am completely impressed with this company and will use them whenever I need private jet service. Thank you, Joel!

5 1 5 02/05/2021

Great trip all round. Glenn and the team were terrific. The crew on the day were amazing.

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 05/21/2012

Can't see anything lacking, a great job all the way around. Thanks, Mark 

5 1 5 11/28/2019

Joel and his team fire on all cylinders at all times. Every detail of the trip is always handled and communication is very proactive. We have special requests all of the time from exact wheels up times to ground transport changes and the team handles our trip with ease. I cannot recommend the Stratos Team enough and the value you get far exceeds our past charter and membership experiences. Thank you again Stratos Team

5 1 5 06/22/2020

Excellent service from the first point of contact to disembarking from the flight. Kyle was amazing to deal with in the booking phase and the execution of the flight was flawless. Great pilots, equipment, handling, all on time. Highly recommended.

5 1 5 08/12/2020

We felt safe, comfortable and the flight arrived ahead of schedule.

5 1 5 03/22/2021

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Anthony is amazing. He goes above and beyond every time anyone in my family has booked a flight through Stratos. He makes sure all of our needs are met and walks us through every step. After flight is booked he checks on us every step of the way to our destination and back.

5 1 5 01/01/2022

Stratos was great and we for sure will recommend our broker to our friends

5 1 5 08/07/2015

Mr. <name removed for confidentiality> is extremely upset and disappointed with Stratos Jets as the plane had mechanical problems on take off which delayed the trip by 5 hours. It was his wife's birthday and the entire family had a full day of sightseeing arranged which had to be cancelled. The trip was very costly and he feels he is due back some compensation. Thank you, Etta G.

5 1 5 05/23/2018

Dr and Mrs. J <redacted> were delighted with the recent trip, thank you!

5 1 5 09/14/2017

I have worked with quite a few different charter companies over the years and Stratos Jets has been the easiest to work with. I always work with Kerry Hill because she very professional, friendly, and is just down right awesome at her job. I often need last minute trips for my boss and she always gets back to me quickly regardless of what time of day it is. I truely feel she goes above and beyond to make sure every aspect of the trip runs smoothly and everyone is happy. I can't say enough about how much stress is taken out of booking these flights because I know Stratos and Kerry have everything I need covered.

5 1 5 11/26/2016

Its always a pleasure to work with Mark and Stratos!

Glenn,
The trips, one to Iowa & the other back to Dulles, went great.
