“from NYC to JFK”

Talk about a short flight. I hope the guy at least joined the mile-high club.

He spent so much on the flight that there was no money left over for a copy editor. :frowning:

If you have 32 grand to blow on first-beyond-first class, who needs luggage? You can probably afford a Speedo and a toothbrush when you land.


#6

Meh. I like edgier wealth porn. Needs more blood of the oppressed.

The airline employees were probably surprised that he expected the luggage back. That’s why two vehicles show up - one for you, one to take your luggage for re-sale/charity/disposal.


#8

$32K and that’s all the legroom he got? That seat doesn’t look all the deep either or even reclineable. I’d say I’ve had more legroom on a United business class flight.

Grated it looks like you can make the bench into a bed but I want a bleeping fluffy soft comfy recliner for when I am up and about. As shown it looks a lot like a roomette on a US train or a couchette on a European train.

Someone about this guy rubs me the wrong way.


#10

For a lot less money you can get a hotel suite that’s much larger and just as fancy, with the big added bonus of not being in Abu Dhabi when you check out.

I don’t get how the economics of this works out for that airline. Wouldn’t they rather take a half dozen 1st class folks in sleeper chairs for 6K a pop?

Also, why would someone drop 32K on a first class “apartment” cabin, when they could just as easily charter a whole jet to take them and their entourage wherever?


#12

Maybe it turns out the airline doesn’t actually send two vehicles out to fetch you and your luggage separately… :-0


#13

Dunno, but you still wouldn’t have as much staff, galley space or elbow room on a private jet, unless you are talking private airliner rather than corporate jet.

I get a thrill watching the wealthy being starved and tortured into supposed good health and longevity - normally in a clinic in Switzerland - by fully qualified doctors who don’t believe a word of the quack remedies they are proposing . Suckers!
