If you often need to make flights on short notice or have an unpredictable schedule or planned route the total access that ownership provides is its own greatest benefit. With your own private plane there is no minimum call out time no concern that all the charter aircraft are booked when you need to make a critical flight. Even jet card and fractional ownership programs may take hours to sometime days during busy time periods like holidays to make an aircraft available.
Not everyone needs to personalise their private jet to indulge their taste for luxury. Some people are quite content to merely fly first-class provided their every whim is catered to and their every comfort is assured. Airlines such as Etihad have cottoned on to the needs of the super rich and have taken first-class flying to stratospheric levels. Even Etihad`s economy class is designed to make travellers feel more like valued customers and less like cattle bound for slaughter.
After a very comfortable 6 hour sleep (I actually slept for a solid six hours) the cabin lights were dimmed up at 0630 am accompanied by a hot face cloth and orange juice service to gently wake the passengers from their slumber. We were now 90 minutes ahead of our arrival at Toronto. Fifteen minutes later a cold breakfast plate was served consisting of cold meats and a generous mixture of fresh fruits (including grapefruit mango orange and watermelon) complemented by bread preservatives cereals yogurts and other drinks served from the cart. I thought this was the extent of the breakfast but to my pleasant surprise a hot tomato and ham omllette plate with sausage and potatoes followed which was very nice.
