    Yup, I'll just be going in first class. I've been on planes frequent enough to know the drill and it's not that huge of a deal for me. I would not be able to justify the cost in private jets. Also commercial airliners are safer as well.

      Now im not talking safety..And Im not saying buying a jet Im saying buy time in a jet...you can fly when and where you want, take what you want, bring however many people you want ( as long as the capacity allows it) no security checkpoints, take off on your command etc. etc. etc. Im just sick of the general public, delays, checkpoints, crying bratty kids, people who are drunk and or wont obey the rules on the plane, etc. etc. etc. etc.....

        I Agree! Flying is NOT fun anymore, thanks to government controlled security.

          Yeah, I was talking about renting as well. Buying jet is out of the budget of a lowly jackpot lotto winner definitely. But I still would do commercial for the safety and also you could meet some interesting people on the plane. Even if I'm a huge rich person I want to blend in like everyone else and still make friends and talk and help out people if I can. I guess the rich lifestyle is not for me! :D

              Dang, 3400/hour. Well if you really want to splurge your lady for a nice weekend out then go for it! Definitely something to splurge on if that's your thing. For 3400 that's definitely first class seats anywhere in the USA plus a nice rental sports car for the weekend as well.

               

              For international travel I'd definitely do first class as well. Not sure if/how much you can do a private jet overseas. That'd be crazy expensive.

                    A flight is a flight really, maybe just upgrade to extra leg room but that's about it.
