Blade Helicopter - JFK to Manhattan transfer.

I was thinking of going all out since i've booked First Class when i go NY later in the year and getting a private charter helicopter to Manhattan from the airport. Can anybody who's used them before tell me about the luggage allowance? Only reference i can find is this https://blade.flyblade.com/p/luggage which says a 20lb carry on bag, is that it? They are offering airport transfers surely people have suitcases? Not that i will use it all buy my allowance on the plane is 3x 32KG bags.

If you are doing full private charter then you will not have any problems. If you are using one of their shared charters, I would recommend calling them just to confirm the number of people and the number of bags you are going to bring.

I use them regularly on my NY trips, especially after they launched their 'all-day' by-seat service. You won't be able to take your checked-in luggage onboard (unless you charter the full helicopter), however I haven't found them to be strict on the 20lbs limit (my carry-on is often heavier than that). I've never had more than three others onboard, and on one occasion had the helicopter to myself.
