The kind of flying you do the places you go the number of travelers on the aircraft also play a role in the economics of ownership. For example ownership is much more cost effective if you primarily fly round trips avoiding deadheading costs or multi-day hangar and ground handling fees and airline tickets home and back for the flight crew. If you primarily fly one way a fractional ownership share or a jet card could be a better solution than full ownership because fractional and jet card costs are based on one-way flights.

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.
