 Booking a Charter   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
The principal difference between chartered and scheduled flights is that with charters you deal directly not with airlines but with entities known as wholesale tour operators.
Charter flights are notoriously late, often by hours and not infrequently by days.
Unless the charter offers truly dramatic advantages in terms of cost and convenience-and from some destinations on some charters this may well be the case-the greater security, comfort, and flexibility offered by a scheduled service is usually worth the extra money.

In keeping with the stated purpose of this Charter, an offending priest or deacon is to be offered therapeutic professional assistance both for the purpose of prevention and also for his own healing and well-being.

 Charter airline - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the context of mass tourism, charter flights have acquired the more specific meaning of a flight whose sole function is to transport holidaymakers to tourist destinations.
Although charter airlines typically carry passengers who have booked individually or as small groups to beach resorts, historic towns, or cities where a cruise ship is awaiting them, sometimes an aircraft will be chartered by a single group such as members of a company, a sports team, or the military.
The economics of charter flights demand that the flights should operate on the basis of near 100% seat occupancy, and the standard of seating and service may be lower than on scheduled airlines (though this is by no means always the case).
