Yes, having a private jet for a day is quite expensive. Most of us might not even think about looking up the price to fly private. Let me tell you about a little known secret about chartered planes: it is all about the empty legs.
Let me explain, an empty leg is when a flight has no passengers. Sometimes this happens when planes need to return to their home location, or if the plane needs to start a new flight in a nearby city or airport.

So how do you fly a private plane for cheap again? Since the plane needs to get to their next destination without passengers, the flight is not making any money during the empty leg. If anything, they are losing money due to flight expenses.
