Scheduled Vs Chartered Airlines
One of the questions that a lot of people ask is what is the difference between these two types of flights.
The airline companies such as British Airways, British Midland, KLM operate flights that run day in day out and travel all around the world. There is a time table these flights usually conform to and it's generally repeated through out the year. Airlines as well as travel agents generally sell seats on scheduled flights to the public.
Chartered on the other hand is when a specific flight is booked by a travel firm such as Thomson, First Choice e.t.c. for their exclusive use to be used either as part of a package or just for them to sell as they like. Hence the flight is said to be chartered i.e. hired for the purpose of the travel firm.
So there is no real difference from a consumers point of view, except that if you have a problem with your flight, if it's chartered you would contact the travel company, and if it's scheduled you would contact the airline direct. All companies in the UK who charter flights need an ATOL licence which provides a bond for consumer protection.
Where a supplier uses another airline that is not their own, then the individual airlines luggage allowance shall be applied.
