What is a dead leg flight?

Category: General Info

The definition of a dead leg flight is the same as that of an empty leg flight. The dead leg refers to the empty connecting flight between the pickup of an already booked fare, or the return leg home from a one-way booking.

If a private jet flies without passengers, it loses money. So anyone wanting and able to fly within the predetermined dead leg flight can then charter it for a fraction of the normal cost.
