Only 16k an hour? So affordable
Zane Carmichael (10 days ago)
But it doesn’t buy us time. You have to book a week in advance and charged heavily for last minute booking because of the small fleet. The value proposition is flying in a 60m dollar plane without paying that money. You’d lose the same few million in three years on depreciation so that is what gives the value

Im fairly certain they went out of business. I guess their model was not 'affordable'.

I think the 1 percent and the 0.00001 percent can afford to buy a plane.

$16,000 an hour for a Global 5000? RIPOFF... Last April I was on a 2013 Gulfstream G550(in NEW CONDITION) which my investment banking client chartered thru a less known charter company for $8,500 per hour heading from Miami to Vancouver Canada. (One way). Then we took the same model and yr jet from Vancouver to Wash Dc for the same price per hr. For 16k an hour Vista jet better supply me with a full platoon of hot women all in line waiting to suck my c#ck for the duration of the whole flight ...

00:47 "... smartest people in the world." No. No. No. No. No. Five times because someone saying such BS for sure won't understand NO said less times. A huge part of that group can really be very good at something that brought them fortune. But don't be condescending: you are saying such lying just to please potential buyers and know that many of your customers can be simply monarchs that explore people and built their great life at the cost of the life of others. Like drug traffickers... Or oil kingpins... And the sickest part is that doing businesses with such people would have no moral issue to the type of seller we see at this video...

He's a front for some dodgy foreign money laundering scam, a paid ruse to embody a genuine start-up that so closely resembles another service that's well known to even the passing ear. Probably some Azeri middle man under instruction from a government minister to off-set millions in a tax haven free from levies, if not...I'll be welcome to ideas as to why he bothered to splurge billions in his name on a money scheme that wont recoup anything like the expenditure in a month of Sunday's. Get rich by siphoning said monies into your own account elsewhere.

I've never understood this false idea that wealth is related to intelligence. I'm sorry but the two are not synonymous with one another. Look at Trumps dumbest MF on the planet, falls ass backwards into money and has absolutely no idea how it got into his own pocket. Wealthy people are only smart enough to hire others to keep the money coming in. Again look at the orange Umpaloompa n' chief, the man takes credit for paying no taxes ever, when it's his accountants, the crooked SOBs they are whom are the actual brains.

Considering that 1 % of the Earth's population is seventy million people, more people than the population of most countries, yes I can imagine why they could not all fit in that jet. And considering that to qualify for the 1 % you only need about 2644 USD a month to qualify for the top 1 %, I can imagine why most could not afford it either.

@0:45 just because of have tons of money doesn’t make you smart, you elitist piece of shit! Look at the orange moron in the White House as a perfect example of that! If you were truly as rich as he is speaking about then you would own not rent. Ridiculous hyperbole!

Simisani Moyo (4 months ago)
the luxury jet business exists more as a status symbol than it does actual convenience. With hundreds of fights a day on the myriads of airlines you can pretty much travel just about at any time if you fly business class. So a luxury jet is a snobbish way of saying i cant fly with these commoners I need my own plane. The Uberjets model is better , pay for the cost of the flight and Uberjet anywhere rather than pay for flight minutes you might not actually use. Lets admit it though everyone wants a private jet of their own to say they have made it in life, they have reached the skies.
