Commercial airlines are aware of this fact, and that is why for many years now nothing much has changed. Today, though, there are more and more options becoming available for travellers that are alternatives to flying commercially.
1. Rent A Vehicle
If you are travelling regionally, or even further, one option is to rent a car to travel to your destination.
While driving will certainly take a little longer than flying, it may not be that much longer.
Consider how long it will take you to get to the airport, how long in advance you need to leave to make sure you have enough time at the airport, and all of the delays that are associated with commercial flying.
Driving also allows you to take your time, see the countryside around you, and not have to worry about keeping to the airlines schedule instead of your own.
2. Take A Bus Trip
If you are travelling to far to drive by yourself, another option is to purchase a bus ticket.
Again, this may take a little more time than flying, but when you are travelling by bus you do not usually have to deal with the delays associated with flying commercially.
Taking a bus trip allows you to enjoy your trip, and still see the countryside around you, while not having the responsibility of driving yourself.
Amtrak offers train service throughout the country, allowing you to see America while travelling in a comfortable, relaxed environment.
If you are taking a long trip you can book a private cabin or eat a sit-down meal. If you are looking to save some money you can just purchase a seat and bring your own snacks.
Travels by train is a great alternative to commercial flights since they are usually less expensive and more relaxing.
4. PRIVATE JET
Hiring a private jet charter, if you still need to get to your destination quickly can be an affordable alternative to taking a commercial flight.
Although a little more expensive than a commercial airline ticket, you will find that you have a group of people traveling together the cost goes way down.
The best thing about flying a private jet is that there are none of the hold-ups and security checkpoint delays that you find in the commercial airports, plus these planes travel at high speeds and can take off and land just about anywhere.
If you are looking for travels to get away for business or on holiday than consider taking a car, bus or train, and if you feel that it is necessary to fly to your chosen destination than be sure to choose a private jet charter and save yourself of the headaches of commercial airline travel.
