Just know this - if they're not asking you about the goals of your trip, you're wasting your time. I work for a Wyvern jet charter broker (Air Charter Advisors) --- we've straight up refused trips when we don't find an aircraft we're comfortable putting on customers on, and have told people they're better off going commercial when there's no value in the cost - no sense in taking $5k from you now only to be never contacted again. We don't have crazy overhead, so our business model is more relationship than sales, anyway. We get C-level guys calling us for 2 -3 years before they finally get around to booking with us. I can't speak for too many companies being reputable outside of maybe StratosJets and Paramount (PBJ), but the key is finding a company where you're not just an account number. This industry is super personalized, and your broker should be the same way, not just some fast-talking private jet aficionado.
