Flying in a private jet is a distant dream for not-so-rich ordinary people but for celebrities and super-rich tycoons it’s normal and a part of their lifestyle. So, have you ever wondered what exactly happens inside a private jet and what it would be like to travel in one?
Recently some secrets were spilled by a flight attendant, you will be shocked to know how much it costs to own or travel in a private jet and what extra privileges only a rich person can enjoy.
This flight attendant shared with The Express about her encounters with the travelers onboard while keeping her identity anonymous. Most of her luxury clients are “mainly very rich British and American people” who rent the plane to have a good time with friends and family and enjoy their vacations.
Of course, the lady didn’t disclose the names of the clients but revealed that renting private jets cost a fortune, and her clients were mostly aircraft owners and celebrities. She disclosed that she even served a YouTuber who rented the flight. From serving liquor to the passengers who were going to a funeral to a client cheating on his partner, she has witnessed it all.
“Once I did a trip with one of my clients in America and his girlfriend. Then we came to Europe and he had another girlfriend and I had to act super normal! It was my first time flying with him, a super-rich guy. It was such an awkward situation.”
She added: “Nobody told me anything about the girlfriend so thank God my captain informed me as soon as they came on board.”
She mentioned another incident that was quite bizarre. She said:
“I had clients going to a funeral and asked me for champagne on the way there. I obviously didn’t have any with me thinking they would not drink something like that for a funeral.”
A private jet journey from London to Glasgow can cost over 13 lakh INR, she emphasized. So the net worth of the clients traveling must be huge.
However, she said her clients tip her well. The rich clients tip her well and the highest amount she has received till now is 1.2 lakhs INR on a five-day trip.
Did you know that in a private jet the passengers are supposed to be served full-course meals by the flight attendants even on a one-hour flight? This obviously doesn’t count in commercial airlines.
What a life!
