These empty legs have the problem that you're only getting transportation one way, so you have to find your way home in a lot of cases. I suppose this is a fun perk occasionally, but it's certainly not very useful.

Well as they say, nothing is free in life. His investment in JetSuite was 7 million which at $499/trip that equates to over 14,000 legs.

$4,000 per hour to fly in that Brazilian tin can is cheap? Does that include the girls?

I'm sure they could include some girls with the money they save by not using brakes to land or taxi!!!

$4,000 a hr for that aircraft is extreme. Im sure they bumped the cost per hour up to make the article and deal sound even better then it is. Not to say its a bad deal for the workers...

I don't think it's $4000 an hour to charter, it seems like a share, so that hourly cost includes whatever else you'll incur as an owner.
