Ah, the trying times we live in! While most of us have a tough time filling up our compact car with gas, the Hollywood elite (and Al Gore, by the by), travel not First Class on American but on their own private jets. As a matter of fact, sometimes they need two private jets!
Recently while P. Diddy was in France on vacation he wanted to travel to Rome. but the crew of the jet charter company told him the aircraft couldn't carry both he and his staff plus all of the luggage with his clothes. What to do, what to do? Charter a second jet, of course, to carry the luggage! Ah, what a way to live.
P. Diddy apparently owns a Gulfstream GIV SP, which for those of you who don't know, is the creme de la creme' of the corporate jet set. With luxurious seating for at least 14 and transcontinental range, it is the only way to go in style.
But, shucks, now Jet A fuel prices have caught up with rapper P. Diddy. With a sigh and his hand on his wallet holding some $ 200M, he has decided he can't afford $ 200,000-$ 250,000 round trip on his jet from New York to LA to pursue his acting career. American Airlines get ready, here comes P. Diddy with entourage and luggage in tow.
Well, American Airlines can sure use the money. Kind of brings a tear to your eyes, doesn't it?
Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
