I don’t know much about them, but a new company called Jumpjet has launched, offering the use of a private jet for roughly the cost of coach tickets. Here’s the deal:
They have several different packages, but at the most basic, you pay a $500 signup fee, and then $1,800 a month for 3 months. For that, you get 2 round trips on a private jet per month, and you can take 3 people with you. Doing that math, that’s about $1,000 for 4 round trip tickets on a private jet. Flights have to be less than 1,800 miles or so, though packages are available if you need to go coast-to-coast. If you have a vacation home, or do frequent business elsewhere, this is a helluva deal. Good luck convincing your spouse of that.
