People use different modes of transport to get to their destination. The poorest usually walk to their desired places, people with a little more money are using public transport, rich ones travel in luxury cars … And what do the richest people in the world do? Many of them have private jets. This, of course, has advantages compared to ordinary people’s way of flying – you do not have to wait several hours to get on board of the aircraft, as well as to take obnoxious control of security. On the other hand, the opponents of this snobbery often say that personal jet is a waste of money that could be spent on something more useful.
