High class Jetiquette

This was inspired by Anne’s post at her blog : Food travel Tour. By the way, Anne’s post is super! Read all about her experience flying private jet. Fascinating and wish we have the opportunity for the same…some day!

No selfies, overly flashy clothing but perhaps white gloves and large sunglasses. Definitely don’t wear slippers or tracksuits and please, pray please DO NOT put on so much perfume that you chloroform fellow passengers or even the pilot. Especially not the pilot. Your life depends on him or her. These are just some of the Dos and Don’ts of flying private jet.

Also, don’t bring too many carry-ons with you. It clutters the plane, and mysterious wealthy people do not carry all their belongings everywhere, least of all to a private jet. Actually we don’t understand the thing about the large sunglass. Does it really make you look that much more mysterious?

Because this is all so intriguing, we got into googling the web to find out the following:

  • It can cost anything between US$2,000 – $15,000 per hour depending on the size and configuration of the jet being chartered. Sure the noisier turboprops are cheaper, but who wants to shout to talk? The Smallest jet such as the gulfstream can only seat 3-4 passengers…This was something we took out of a US-based company’s website.
  • Chaperone services bring you through immigration and customs faster. For sure, why would you pay so much?
  • You can book online and pay with your credit card (especially if you have a Centurion card) for each trip/sector. Acting rich and cool is so easy, pay with your visa wave…

There are charter services operating out of Singapore too (of course!) but they do not provide a tariff table. Just like home renovators here, they probably ask if you lived in a condo or in a government flat before quoting…

Private Jet costs
Example of a tariff table – all US$ and good as of end 2016

A new idea for future corporate team building is seeded!  Wonder if we have to tip the pilot. Does anyone else have private jet experiences to share?

    1. LOL. We’ll leave you to decide!
      As you probably might read from our blog, it is light hearted approach to writing and sharing our memories and opinions. Where we want to be serious, we’ll say it in the post!

  1. No hiring of a private jet only by lucky invitation which was awesome. Otherwise it would be out of our league, no doubt. Best was a trip into the Kruger National Park in South Africa to a private game lodge and landing on a grass strip where the warthogs had to be chased away first.

  2. Haha! Love this post. Don’t tell anyone but I actually laughed out loud! And it’s 3am in SA. I just love the Dos and Don’ts. Perfume – chloroform? Tracksuit?
    And yes, the bigger the sunglasses the better. They don’t make us look like bugs anymore. Blame Jacqui! 😆
    Get friends – will travel by private jet 😉
