    First Class overseas is the creme de la creme, with of course a major carrier. Luf, NW, U, AA, UE, etc. Granted, it's no G550.... but it's also not 15K an hour.

    People can't compare it to domestic first class, which, IMO, is a step above a grayhound bus with a slightly larger seat. You can't think "domestic first class" when talking about overseas service. Or intercontinental, outside of the US.

    Nothing but positive for Netjets. (EDIT: Using the Marquis Jet Card) Been on chartered G4s with them within the country and the service is top notch. For going out of the country, my friend has a G550 in his family they bought it for relatives to use whenever so we use that.

    I work at a local airport, and sometimes if they aren't carrying anybody, I ask if I can tag along and fly right seat. King Airs, beechjets, and a cessna citation cj3 to name a few. Almost got a ride on Pepsi's Global Express 5000

    Wow--I'm surprised anybody would let you do that. Most private jet owners are fairly particular with who they allow on their planes (I know I am!).

    If they let you--more power to ya! Pepsi's Global looks sick.

    Well, I know a lot of the owners. I work at a turbine aircraft maintenance shop, so many of big birds and the owners frequently stop by, but I do get shot down a bit.

    Oh and you wont believe who was on that Global...

    Chairman of Pepsi herself, and her daughter. Its their private jet...one of a few I assume. They flew in JUST to do a college visit to the campus nearby.

    King Airs are nice. Our friend has a Super200.

    I got kicked out of the casino in Las Vegas; I didn't cheat, I just misunderstood what the crap table was for
