““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.’” ”
FltPlan.com Links with Corporate Angel Network
Online flight-planning company FltPlan.com has partnered with Corporate Angel Network (CAN) to make it easier for corporate flight departments to notify CAN of the availability of empty seats in the aircraft they fly. CAN arranges free transportation for cancer patients to treatment centers throughout the U.S., using donated space on corporate aircraft. FltPlan.com has modified its software to allow its customers who participate in the charity’s program to automatically add their flight schedules into its secure database.
