So as you can see, most of these things are more like homes or rooms in the sky than the airplanes we are all used to flying on. And while these plans are amazing, we likely knew most of these celebrities don’t fly public. The private jet is one of the biggest marks of a “higher level” of celebrity and wealth. We have all dreamed of having a private jet and skipping all the pains of the airport but to have a jet (and especially ones that you have seen in this article), you need to have a boatload of cash.
