Apart from size do flash drives have any advantage over SSDs if their price is equivalent?

For running an OS ssds are superior to flash. Flash drives aren't really meant to run an OS. Flash is meant to be portable storage.

I agree with you but my question is whether flash drives have any advantages over SSDs apart from size? If not, then there is no reason to buy 64 or 128 flash drives because their prices are similar to those of identical size SSDs.
