So, I had a lot of traveling to do this weekend and in order to try to make up for some valuable time, instead of driving 3 hours to my meeting today, I took one of the company's jets.
We got the smallest one.
When I say small - I mean small.
The interior was no larger (if not smaller) than your standard SUV. As my female passenger kept reminding me - it's exactly these small planes that plummet from the sky on a routine basis.
No, there was no security screening. I parked my car next to the hangar and got on the plane. Yes, there was food and drinks. I had a fruit salad with some orange juice on the flight.
On an interesting note, I got to see all the neato cockpit controls. Even the flashing red light that kept saying something about oil pressure. I think this is why they always keep the cockpit door closed on commercial flights.
When we landed at the private airport, there was a Lincoln town car waiting 4 feet away. No need for baggage claim et al.
A person can get used to this.
