Private Jets: Why does Mr. Big want it?

Aug 17, 2007
The sales figures for private jets have gone up by about 40% in the United Kingdom following a bomb scare at a busy international airport. Sales of private jets world has gone up by about 35%. This is an increasingly disturbing trend for commercial airlines since it has also been observed that the number of business class passengers flying regularly with commercial airlines, had halved over the time, from 18% to 9%.

What can explain this trend, The ever increasing number of people turning towards the private charters, fractional ownership of planes and actually buying their exclusive private jets for either business or leisure purposes?

It could be ever steeply climbing apprehensions about their safety, with the number of hijack instances steadily rising, the recent show of terrorism, increased frisking and security at the airport terminals which tend to put harried business people off. It could be due to the fact that loads of time is wasted at the airport check-in kiosks, crowded terminals, delayed or cancelled flights.

A private jet gives the biggy a big kick. It saves him and his business a good deal of time and he is well equipped with the entire necessary infrastructure to be able to stay in touch with his folks at work, even while flying, at the same time, helping him haul himself to distant places where his presence could make or break a deal.

Sometimes, they need to get away from the grind of business, or perhaps host a whacky party at a whacky place what can be crazier than a full blown party high up in the air? It gives them the freedom to go with the people they want to, to the places where they want to go and whenever they feel like going.

Most important, these private jets have access to more airports than the commercial airlines do, moreover, they can land anywhere where this is a tiny stretch of runway. However, the fact that the hair rising cost of these planes is justifiable or not is debatable and a million things could be said for and against it.

The kick, the fancy, the time saved, the productivity gained, the access, the freedom, the power and the fact that he owns the craft he is flying in. Now, isn't all that quite enough for him to go ahead and pamper himself over The Atlantic, with his all new, very blue, high speed luxury cruiser?
