If you utilize the same category of aircraft for your flights at least 80 percent of the time private ownership can also make economic sense. However if your mission changes regularly traveling long range on some flights short to mid-range on others sometimes with just one or two colleagues other flights with a whole team then looking to purchase a private airplane would not make much sense no matter how sweet the deal because one category of aircraft would not serve the majority of travel needs. Charter could be better for this scenario because you can always select the right aircraft for each flight. Some fractional ownership programs and jet cards allow customers to select among three or four aircraft categories (light mid-size super-midsize and large cabin/long range jets) and use more than one aircraft simultaneously providing another option for fliers who need access to several categories of aircraft.
In the race among most airlines to pack in more paying customers into a fixed and very limited aircraft cabin the idea of what constitutes "foot space" or any "space" at all for that matter is a fungible and never easily understood concept on the part of an airline passenger. Believe me when I say that - as a former airline manager - that the airlines would LOVE to give everybody in every section of the plane their own personal "space" but that`s not going to happen in this lifetime from what I can tell.
At 1015 PM approximately 30 minutes after departure the first drink service started and my travel partner and I enjoyed the flight`s featured cocktail the Iceberg Cosmopolitan (a refreshing mixture of Newfoundland-made Iceberg Vodka mixed with cranberry juice and a splash of Grand Marnier). A small plate of premium nuts was served as well. This was soon after followed by a hot towel service and 45 minutes after departure the Captain had still not welcomed us aboard the flight with a standard flight synopsis announcement. Captain Green made no such announcement on this flight.
