“"I've got a list of corporations that have gotten out of their airplanes [because of criticism from politicians]. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. When you look at the time and cost savings; it does not make sense not to fly [privately]. You can't let public perception interfere with your business decision to fly. It either is a good business decision or it isn't."”
Catering Firm Bringing Chefs Aboard Jets
Chef in the Sky, a new service from London-based caterer Alison Price On Air, provides personal chefs aboard business jet flights. Customers can choose from a preselected menu with paired wines or design their own multicourse feasts. Alison Price offers the service on all private heavy jet flights departing from London. Charges depend on the time involved, the complexity of the menu and whether a chef is required for a return flight.
