    Deal a day sites have been incredibly popular the last few years. The main sites, Groupon and Living Social are facing competition from big companies like Amazon (Amazon Local) and Google (Google Offers) among others.
    On these sites you can buy just about anything- restaurant offers, travel deals, online gift cards, unique experiences, the list goes on and on.
    How about a deal to buy flight time on a private jet!

    I guess you'd get around 20,000 miles from using your credit card! LOL
    I wonder if they sold any of these deals!

    Having worked on a private jet desk, most people have no idea how much it costs.

    A jet to go from KOA-OGG for half a day for a golf game quoted out at $5k. Booked it, too.

    And I was worried that the price would be outlandish for the 168 mile round trip! ;)

    Did you ever get to fly on one of the private jets?

    When they had the Virgin deal a while back it sold out right away.

    I think Randy even checked with them but it was gone.

    That deal was a bit different. I am pretty sure they were also going to paint the plane with a logo of your choice or something to that extent. I also think the Virgin flight allowed for many more passengers.

    This deal seems to include two tickets to the final round of the masters. Isn't it almost impossible to get those tickets at any price? I'm not lining up for it, but it seems like for a golf fanatic with money to burn it might be worthwhile.

    ETA: Never mind --- looks like Sunday tickets to the masters can be had via broker starting at about $750 each.

    I agree too, people usually have no idea how much it is to fly on a private jet... and in some cases, if you're travelling with a group is well worth it. Time-saving, stress-free :cool:

    If you fly on Lufthansa Private Jet you get miles.

    Until September 1st all your passengers who fly with you get miles also.

    A roundtrip within Europe can cost ~15 000 EUR for a short distance return same day.
