Depends on the flight and class, though post-security restaurants have real cutlery too. It's security theatre.

Explains the constant molestation and checks at the boarding area then.

SHHHHHHHH we don't have that hassle here yet in Canada! I fly into some small market airports here and let me tell you... it sure is nice and a throwback to the good old days. Kind of like private jet flying but on a commercial jet.

There is nothing like flying on a corporate jet. Showing up to the FBO and taking off when YOU want to, is a very nice perk.

Funny thing is.... it's not that much more expensive when going into a small market with 9 people! I compared prices with Air Canada and I can do it for around the same $$ if not slightly more.

It's the stigma though. People THINK it's way more but in reality its not (case by case basis of course)

That stigma is what keeps me flying first class and booking plane loads of associates because chartering jets is forbidden (and actually cheaper) by most clients. They deem video conferencing too insecure, and corporate jets too flashy/expensive.

How do you know that the service for a 6 year member is not the same as one who is 20 year?
