The Business Class cabin was two thirds empty on the two hour Buenos Aires - Santiago sector and we landed an hour of so before sun down in clear and warm conditions with the Captain informing us it was still 29 degrees C. All passengers were deplaned at Santiago during the one hour station stop so that the aircraft could be groomed for the long-haul flight back to Toronto. Interestingly enough Air Canada has traffic rights between Buenos Aires and Santiago so some passengers left us but a larger number along with the new crew were waiting to join the flight at gate 15 in the new Santiago Airport terminal. Large glass windows are a prominent feature of the new airport which is great for aircraft spotters but they somehow forgot to incorporate an adequate air-conditioning system. It was stifling hot as we waited to board the flight although the Servisair-GlobeGround contract agents boarded the plane efficiently there was no advance boarding for Business-Class passengers as normal in Canada.
The are a number of indicators one considers as denoting success. Items like a large home expensive cars jewelry exotic vacations and private jets. Of that short list only one stands alone as being reserved for those who have reached the pinnacle of success. After all in an age of McMansions a big home may be just an over extension of one`s credit expensive vehicles could be a lease jewelry may be a quality fake and the world is now open to everyone for travel. The one indicator out of reach unless one has the honest ability to attain it is private jet travel.
But when considering owning a private jet don`t think only about the flights you`re making now. Think about the ways your organization could use an aircraft - to see clients prospect for new business manage far flung business operations. Don`t be surprised if you come to the conclusion that not having a private jet is costing you plenty in missed opportunities.
