““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
FBOs Join New Partnership
Seven FBOs have left the Million Air franchise system and switched to a new brand name, Odyssey Aviation, having joined in a marketing partnership with the Odyssey Aviation Bahamas FBO at Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau. Odyssey Bahamas also used to be a Million Air franchisee. The seven former Million Air FBOs are owned by Ken Allison, who joined the Million Air franchise system in 1992 with his first FBO at Louisiana's New Orleans Lakefront Airport. Allison's other newly branded Odyssey FBOs are in Asheville, N.C.; Charleston, S.C.; Chicago; Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio; and Lafayette, La.
