Awesome!

After several JetSmarter trips, I've come to believe that most of the people flying these Jets are not as wealthy as they'd have you believe. The person who flies a "public" private jet needs you to think they are rich. Someone who is actually rich doesn't care what you think, because they are rich.

Maybe but you're seldom if ever going to find Buffet or Gates or Cuban not flying private.

They own their own jets, that's a whole different ballgame.

You know this thread reminds of me a comment I read in Meathead's cookbook how 2 oil execs took a helicopter ride 90 miles to some middle of nowhere smokehouse. Apparently that's not an uncommon thing to do in Texas.

Yup, that was my point. It's the people flying these fake private jets that have this mentality.

I'm not meaning to disparage the experience at all. It's super cool to fly on one of these, and I'm really grateful for the opportunity. But let's call a spade a spade, these aren't private jets. It's just a very small airline with an extremely limited route network, a hectic schedule, and you get to skip the airport experience.
