Zach was pleasant, knowledgeable, efficient and a delight to deal with. I have usually used another broker but Zach won the charter for your company Joel. Well done.

5 1 5 06/28/2018

From start to finish, our experience with Stratos was totally professional, made very simple and the ultimate in how charter travel should be booked/enjoyed! We know it takes an entire team behind the scenes but all credit to Joel for his 'personal' touch and for making our return trip to New York a very memorable one indeed!!! We have used several charter companies worldwide over the years but Joel and his team beat them all!!!

5 1 5 04/06/2017

Thanks to Kerry for helping us get to where we need to be ! Very detail oriented company. Pilot's were very professional. See you next time!

5 1 5 09/25/2017

It was great working with Joel he was involved from beginning to end in every aspect of the trip.  We look forward to many trips together. Thank you.

5 1 5 05/23/2018

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

5 1 5 12/03/2019

Hey Wanted to let you know that your pilots were so thoughtful and attentive to my daughters needs yesterday.  They removed all unnecessary obstacles for her.  Thank you so much

5 1 5 07/17/2014

Your company really cares about it's customer and made us feel so comfortable and confident. I would recommend your service to others.

5 1 5 10/03/2017

Joel Thomas and his great team at Stratos makes booking a private charter easy. They keep in contact with you from the start right through to after the flight, which gives my travelers a piece of mind. Everything is always exactly planned to our specifications. Stratos really goes above and beyond in their industry - they are simply the best at what they do.

5 1 5 12/21/2021

As far as I can tell the flight was great. My nephew, his wife and their dog flew from California to Guam for a move. The airport they flew from was changed the day prior to departure due to weather. The catering however didn't make it to the airport so they were on the plane for 15 hours with only the complimentary snacks and the crew shared some of their food with them. When you fly private you expect things to go smoothly...that's why you're willing to pay the extremely high price for. In my opinion there were opportunities missed to make it right. Since they had to refuel in Hawaii there was at least 6 hours to get some kind of catering for them when they landed in Hawaii. I realize that catering needs 24 hours notice but someone couldn't gone above and beyond to make things right and get them fresh fruit and veggie platter with a plain hot pizza or something to give them something other than snacks. I know if the CEO of Stratos was flying this catering issue would've been unacceptable.

Carol - Thank you for bringing this to my attention and you are certainly right.  The ball was dropped.  I have spoken with the private flight advisor regarding the matter and our day of flight process was not followed.  Not having something ready in Hawaii during the fuel-stop is truly a missed opportunity.  I am truly sorry for our misstep and the poor experience this must have been for your nephew and his family.

on the way down, the pilot was nervous, which made a couple of my guests worry...

5 1 5 07/03/2019

Yes, was a smooth process

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 03/07/2023

Stratos helped find the perfect jet for our group's needs. Everything was on time and went smoothly. The communication was excellent, I always knew what was going on.

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 09/13/2017

Recently booked a jet for 11 people from my organization to continue operations during hurricane Irma. As business owners know, operations do not cease during a disaster and customers must continue to be served. Stratos Jet Charters booked the aircraft we needed within an hour of reaching out. Our team was able to continue business operations in NYC seamlessly. Much appreciation to Joel and his team for fast action!

5 1 5 04/01/2016

I was the Charter Director for MOB and BFM for years and now in Accounting….hands down,  your organization is THE BEST in the market.  From the aircraft you recommend, to the pilots, accounting, and especially sweet Daryl!  All awesome. I am certain you all will be hearing from us soon.

5 1 5 12/05/2016

KEEP UP GOOD WORK,WHEN I CALLED WILL HAD MY PAST INFORMATION IN HAND.HE WAS GREAT

5 1 5 11/03/2016

I booked a flight for my good clients and amazing service from pre departure to arrival. Friendly staff and always easy to reach. My clients left sunglasses in the plane and they are already on their way. I will use you for sure again. Thanks again.

5 1 5 09/15/2017

Would definitely recommend to friends! Joel went above and beyond to get us home after hurricane Irma came through Florida! Joel was in a lot of communication with us due to the high air traffic that day! Can't wait to go through Stratos jets again!

5 1 5 12/21/2021

Stratos service is professional, prompt, proactive and easy to do business with. Any questions or concerns they get on it right away ( ie itinerary changes) and very accommodating. I recommend them to all my friends, and when I travel Stratos is my first call.

5 1 5 10/28/2020

Every aspect was professional, courteous, and reliable.

5 1 5 11/22/2016

The Executive Car Service setup was a TOTAL disaster and almost ruined my trip. Chris Fink is awesome, but this man in Jersey was an absolute disgrace. Very disappointed with that firm. The crew stellar. Better than outstanding. I was blessed to have them transporting me on thus very important day trip. Chris' follow-up and communication was outstanding. He is Top-Notch.

5 1 5 04/13/2022

Our company attempted for 2 days to secure a private jet for our business trip out of Tucson, AZ to Ban Nuys, CA. Then I contacted Stratos Jet. Within hours Stratos Jet accomplished what all the other private jet charters failed to do. We will now always start with Stratos Jets before wasting time with their competitors. Stratos Jet went ABOVE & BEYOND in their customer service & professionalism. And that 1st class treatment of service continued thru all phases of our business trip from start to return.

5 1 5 04/13/2017

We love Joel!

5 1 5 12/21/2021

As always, every aspect of the trip from booking to deplaning could not have been more enjoyable and efficient!!

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 02/05/2018

Always enjoy flying privately. Exciting from planning a trip to booking to flight(s). Predominantly use Stratos. Attentive and personal service. Joel Thomas was a great go to person. All subcontractors that they use have been top-notched. Only critique is I obtained better final pricing of the flight when I received quotes from other charter companies. Seems to be an industry thing about competitive pricing in order to obtain the best price. Yes I would recommend Stratos.

5 1 5 01/01/2022

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

5 1 5 12/19/2023

Great equipment, a competent/courteous crew and a smooth flight make for a terrific trip!!

5 1 5 11/29/2020

Everything went as smoothly as it possibility could have. Special kudos to Randy who was perfect in his communication skills. Good equipment, good pilots ...great trip thanks

5 1 5 08/24/2018

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

5 1 5 02/19/2020

From the first email until the time we were wheels down in St. Thomas, the responsiveness, service, professionalism and attention to detail were exceptional. There is absolutely no chance I will ever use anyone else and I will be sure to share my experiences with my colleague’s here on Capitol Hill and in my professional and personal circles. A special acknowledgement to Glenn, for everything he did to make this a seamless business experience! Regards, Larnell Director, Travel, Security and Facilities,

5 1 5 02/15/2021

We enjoyed flying with Stratos jet perfect service big thank you to Glenn, very responsive very customer oriented

5 1 5 05/03/2021

All aspects of our interaction with Stratos was perfect. My wife and I will definitely use their services in the future.

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 08/05/2012

Toilet paper, Pillows and blankets

5 1 5 01/01/2018

I thought Stratos was professional and easy to work with. We didn't have any problems or communication issues whatsoever. It's really nice when we don't have to deal with 10 different people to coordinate a trip.

5 1 5 03/13/2022

Always a pleasure doing business with STRATOS, you make it a seamless booking from start to finish! Very professional! Thanks for your business.

5 1 5 04/20/2023

I would recommend Stratosjets to anyone. This was not an easy booking for a number of reasons, but Kerry Hill and the Support staff provided THE best customer service I have ever experienced for ANY service or purchase. If there were more than 5 stars as an option, I would give them more. Bravo!

5 1 5 06/12/2017

Everything went perfect. great job. Yes I would recommend your company to my friends.

5 1 5 07/03/2019

Always great teamwork

5 1 5 06/03/2020

My representative Simon did a really good job explaining my options and arranging our charter. Disappointed our charter Was 30 minutes late due to routine maintenance. Since it was routine, obviously it should have been scheduled to not interfere with our flight schedule. One of the big reason for the charter was to avoid sitting around a lounge in the Covid era. Due to the delay, that’s exactly what we did. Small issues, but water wasn’t working in lavatory, cabin temperature was a bit erratic, and air vent dripped water. Crew was courteous and flight was fine.

Dear Peter, 
 
Thank you for taking time to provide feedback regarding your recent flight on N860TX.  After receiving your review, I investigated the matter to learn a bit more about what was going on.  
 
During the pre-flight check, the crew discovered a maintenance issue that, while minor, needed to be resolved prior to your departure.   Unfortunately, resulting in a delay in your schedule.  We understand that the value of private aviation is oriented around your schedule and privacy, but we can not prioritize that over safety.  In the case of the delay, it is a result of the crews concern for safety of flight.  Regardless, our team values your feedback and have shared it with the air carrier as well.  
 
We look forward to working with you again on your next trip and will seek to ensure a smoother travel experience.
 
All my best,


Joel A. Thomas 

President and CEO

Two thumbs up!

5 1 5 09/19/2018

My boss recently travelled to Europe for the entire month of August. During that time his jet had mechanical issues and could no longer fly where he wanted. He had about 12 flights left in his trip around Europe and Stratos Jet Charters, especially Heather Latch, saved our lives. They were able to accommodate 90% of the trips he wanted at the time he wanted. She really was a life saver for myself and my boss. I will definitely use Stratos Jets again and work with Heather any day of the week! They are magnificent!!

5 1 5 06/23/2021

Hi Steve and Joel and Sandy,

 

Wanted to say thank you for the quick refund. It’s nice to work with you. Very professional.

 

Bye and best regards to the U.S.,

Claus

Everything was very good, however, I am disappointed that I was quoted one price and was charged another.

5 1 5 06/14/2017

Great Trip Support Team We love working with Stratos Jets! They are fast to respond, reasonable to work with, and their brokers and trip support team are very detail oriented which leaves little room for error. I would highly recommend them!

5 1 5 09/17/2018

I always enjoy working with Stratos Jets. They have a great operation that is seamless.

5 1 5 02/21/2022

Great pilots, crew, and plane! Helped a lot with Covid stuff.

5 1 5 08/13/2012

Pilot did a terrible job of synchronizing the engines. It was bad enough at one point that the two guest passengers were worried we would need an emergency landing. I have flown on Hawkers for 15 years now and never had that experience. Crew was very nice, but the pilot needs some instruction. It was very disconcerting.
