Revenues at FlightSafety International increased last year, but declined at NetJets, according to Berkshire Hathaway, which owns both companies but does
not release earnings figures for these divisions. In the fourth quarter last year, NetJets "experienced a significant reduction in revenue as general economic conditions worsened," Berkshire Hathaway reported. "This resulted in lower customer usage and demand, which negatively affected operating margins."

“When you get into the larger aircraft it becomes like a hotel, with dozens of staff supporting the plane based in a galley area down below. You have very comprehensive cooking facilities, and on larger aircraft we have looked at theatres, with spiral staircases and a Steinway grand piano. The limitations for what you can put inside a plane are pretty much the limits of physics, and even money cannot always overcome that. Even so, people are still always trying to push [the limits]. ”
