“When you get into the larger aircraft it becomes like a hotel, with dozens of staff supporting the plane based in a galley area down below. You have very comprehensive cooking facilities, and on larger aircraft we have looked at theatres, with spiral staircases and a Steinway grand piano. The limitations for what you can put inside a plane are pretty much the limits of physics, and even money cannot always overcome that. Even so, people are still always trying to push [the limits]. ”
Lufthansa Inks NetJets Deal
Lufthansa Private Jets has relaunched its partnership with NetJets Europe, following the closure of Swiss Private Aviation, another subsidiary of the German airline. Lufthansa also has announced plans to expand its executive charter service into Middle Eastern and U.S. markets later this year. Under the new deal, Lufthansa passengers will be able to book NetJets flights with as little as 10 hours' notice. The available fleet of more than 150 aircraft in Europe includes Hawker 400XPs, as well as Cessna Citation XLSs and Gulfstream G550s. Lufthansa previously partnered with NetJets from 2005 to late 2007.
