This was the return journey home from our 12-day visit to Argentina which was booked several months in advance redeeming reward points from our Air Canada Aeroplan frequent flyer account. Given the great distance and long journey time from Canada down to Argentina comfort was a priority. So we decided to splurge treating ourselves to Business Class reward tickets. We actually boarded the flight at its origin at Ezeiza Airport in Buenos Aires Argentina for the short two-hour hop across the Andes to Santiago Chile.
The supply of private aircraft on the market currently is high in historical perspectives and the relatively soft current demand has pushed prices of preowned private aircraft to all time lows. At the same time as private aircraft manufacturers want to keep their operation at full capacity they are offering great sales incentives to buyers right now. Those recent trends have caused a modest uptick in private jet sales as buyers are taking advantage of the market oversupply. Aviation consultants and industry professionals have reported seeing a recent rise in the number of first time private plane buyers brought into the market by today`s relatively bargain prices for private jets.
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.
