If you've ever been cramped in coach amid people behaving like savages in steerage conditions — just praying that upgrade would come through — you've probably fantasized about what life would be like if you had a private jet to whisk you around the world effortlessly, comfortably, and in style.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Erika Girardi, of course, doesn't have to dream. Flying private is her every-day reality! Lucky girl.
So, among all of the perks and luxuries, what is the absolute best part of flying private? Well, simply that, "It's private!" Erika told us. Specifically, that means no hassling with TSA, no worries about liquid limits, absolutely no taking off spendy shoes or jewelry just to make it through the security line. "Honestly, you drive your car up to your plane, they grab your luggage, they put it on the plane, and you leave," she says. "There’s no one else around!"
She compares the experience to something mere mortals can understand. "It's kind of the equivalent of having your own car versus taking public transportation. It’s just the convenience level of it... you cut out all that time!"
Sounds divine — and efficient — indeed.
