““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.’” ”
Netjets and Wynn Las Vegas Unveil Partnership
NetJets and the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas have announced an agreement to provide benefits to customers of the fractional-jet-share provider. Current NetJets share owners and Marquis Jet Card holders who stay at Wynn Las Vegas or Encore, its sister hotel, will receive special access to resort amenities, concierge services, VIP admission to events, preferred rates and room upgrades. Likewise, guests at the hotels will receive special benefits when they purchase their first NetJets fractional share or 25-hour Marquis Jet Card.
