The seventh European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition, which took place in Geneva in May, broke all records, with attendance up 15 percent from the 2006 event to more than 11,000 and 354 exhibitors, an 18-percent increase. Orders inked at the show-firm and optional-had a total value of nearly $1.7 billion. The 2008 convention is scheduled for May 20 to 22, again at Geneva International Airport's Palexpo venue.

““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
