News and notes from around the interweb:
- Tough question. I’d say at $100 million, flying private domestically is a no brainer. But long haul international gets pretty pricey, and the efficiencies aren’t as large relative to total trip time. What’s the level of wealth where you’d always fly private? Consider it as an option domestically at $50 million? And for the right one-off on a short trip maybe at $20 million?
I sure miss the massively money-losing venture-funded private jet memberships.
At what level of net worth is it reasonable to justify flying private? Curious what others think.

- False dichotomy, travel doesn’t have to recharge you for the rest of the year or be life altering, it can be relaxing or enhancing, and suggesting travel is some sort of capitalist false consciousness implies a life where you just stay home and accept your meager fate? Not exactly a vision of socialist utopia.
Random thought. Are vacations actually worth it?
Do you really recharge and be more productive rest of the year? Do you make life changing experiences?
Or is it just a well advertised industry that’s great at taking your money? An exquisite carrot capitalism has invented.
