I could get used to this

El JetWhat do you do to pass the time when you find yourself alone on a private jet charter for an hour? If you’re a social media junkie like me, you take a ton of pictures of course! Earlier this week, I got to fly on a fabulous El Jet to LA to meet and greet two from the online coupon site Swagbucks who won a dream trip to Las Vegas. I was so excited to meet these fabulous ladies that I couldn’t concentrate or sit still the entire way! That and the fact that I appreciated every moment of a ride for which an expensive jet and two pilots were sent to Las Vegas to pick up little ‘ol me. The Vegas first-timers I was about to meet had won a vacation of a lifetime, but I was on a trip of a lifetime, on my very first private jet.

  1. Can’t wait to see more pics!

  2. I’d like the opportunity to get used to that, too. Where do I sign up? 😉

  3. Hopefully it was equipped with a potty. The company I worked for had port-a-potty (like on a boat or camping) at the back with a curtain. No one obviously would use it and we had several hour flights sometimes. By-passing security and TSA was excellent though!

  4. That is hilarious! Honestly, I don’t know. It was only a 40-minute flight!

  5. Again, I think this is SO cool. I don’t think I’ll ever get this opportunity so I’ll just live vicariously through you 🙂

    I spend that entire time taking photos too! It sounds like fun and wow, those Swag bucks winners must have been thrilled!!

  7. Looooove the shot, your shoes are so glam!

  8. They were! It was so fun. I hope to hear soon how their stay was. I hope they had a blast.

  9. Only an hour? How many trips to the beverage cart did you manage to make in such a short period of time?

  10. Yeah, I think I could probably get used to it too, quite easily 😉

  11. Such a travel fantasy – you are one lucky girl!

    Abby, I was SO thrilled not only with the ElJet flight and all the fun of the trip provided by Swagbucks, but the chance to meet and chat with you on the flight to Las Vegas. You were so gracious to help plan our trip, and we enjoyed every bit of it !!! Thank you so much.

  13. Yayay!! I was hoping I’d get to hear from you and that you enjoyed everything on your trip!

  14. I used to hate flying myself, until I started flying first class on internation flights. It is so nice, amazing food, and great entertainment. I actually dread the 1 hour flight to ORD, JFK, or DFW, but love the long-haul from there to my destination.

    Having great accomadations in flight really makes a different in travel!
