At 1130 PM (almost two hours after take-off) the meal trays were collected and a wine (port) gourmet cheese fruit and cracker service commenced followed by desert and tea. I opted for the Cherimoya Mousse in a Chocolate Cup which was delightful. Very decadent and was enjoyed by all the surrounding passengers! There were extras of the Chocolate Cup available and passengers were offered a second helping. We politely declined. Desert and tea service continued until midnight and cabin lights were dimmed at 1210 AM for several hours of sleeping.
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.
The connotations associated with a private jet absolutely broadcast that one has arrived. The world changes for those who travel by private jet- one does not have to arrive two hours early to be screened by security or if late have to sprint through the airport before the cabin door closes. With a private jet everything is based around the jet traveler the plane does not takeoff until they arrive but does takeoff the moment they get seated on board. One may feel free to take shoes off smoke have pets seated next to them uncaged and walk on board with a drink in hand. The locations one may travel to in the continental US go up by a factor of ten five thousand airports for the private jet traveler as opposed to just five hundred for the commercial air traveler.
