PRIVATE JETS? ARE THEY WORTH IT?
Mark Cuban once said, the best splurge purchase he ever made was a Private Jet. I recently was lucky enough to pickup a Private Jet membership. This was allowed me to fly as frequent as I want with the luxury of. private jet at a fraction of the cost. From my recent trips I compared the pros and cons between private aviation and commercial airlines
JETSETTER PRO: YOUR TIME IS THE MOST VALUABLE ASSET.
NO EARLY REQUIRED CHECK IN TIME.
I arrive as late as 10-15 minutes before boarding without any issues at all. I try to arrive at least 30 minutes earlier as a courtesy. (If everyone arrives in time we can take off earlier.) The moment I get to the airport I simply drop my bag with the concierge, I am then greeted by the Pilot and the crew staff and get to know them. There is a lounge I can sit down at if I arrive early enough to even have time to do so, typically the airports have Audemar Piguet clocks which is a nice touch.
JETSETTER PRO: ARRIVALS
The moment we land you can either have the cars pickup you directly from the moment you step off the plane. This is super helpful for meetings or just efficiency in time. There is no waiting for any bags since they are already unloaded waiting for you or on the plane with you.
