I've used them, it's a great experience. You land at an FBO and then they shuttle you to whatever terminal you need for your continuing flight. One of the coolest parts was landing on a regular runway and then "taxiing" to the terminal while flying 2 feet above the ground.

Regarding excess luggage, I seem to remember that they have some sort of ground option which may or may not make a lot of sense.

Regular TSA. There's no security going onto the chopper.

For JFK (and presumably all NYC airports) it's 25 pounds.
will they not take more or they will charge?
Quote
For flights between JFK and Manhattan, optionally add a ToteTaxi luggage pickup and delivery upgrade to your flight at checkout, or call Flier Relations after purchase. Pricing begins at $85 for two bags, plus $40 for each additional bag

The issue with any ground service is that it completely negates the time savings advantage.
