Nobody travels quite as lavishly as an A-list celebrity, and what better way to spend your fortune than travelling the world?
It’s a hard life for a VIP, but we’re here to help you put yourself in their Jimmy Choos. Just sit back in your chair, imagine money’s no object, and find out which celebrity jetsetter is your kindred spirit.
‘It’s great to have a private jet. Anyone that tells you that having your own private jet isn’t great is lying to you’
You like to mix business with pleasure, and tend to prefer the buzz of the city. You go everywhere in your private jet, because it gives you a chance to get some much needed shuteye. There’s no time for sleep when your social life is almost as busy as your work life.
The talk show host owns a Bombardier Global Express XRS, which according to Bespoke Air Charter would have set her back around 42 million dollars at the time. We’ll take one in each colour please.
You work so hard throughout the year that when you travel you naturally want to feel pampered. You don’t need your own private jet, but first class is the limit. It’s the little things that really spell luxury and if there’s not a bar or a shower, you’re not going. If work call, email them tomorrow and tell them you were on a break.
The Friends actress is currently starring in a high profile advertising campaign, in which she is horrified at the idea of a flight without on-board facilities such as a shower or a bar. According to Fortune the campaign was worth 20 million dollars. You won’t catch Jennifer in economy anytime soon.
If you want something done right you have to do it yourself. You like to take control and you are confident you will do the best job in the pilot’s seat. You don’t want a mumbling pilot talking turbulence over the intercom. You are the one making the announcements, and your only announcement is, “Buckle up, we’re doing this my way!”
Proving once again that she is one of the most multi-talented ladies around, Angelina earned her pilot’s license in 2004 and she has been flying high ever since. She said she learned to fly to impress her son. As if playing Lara Croft wasn’t impressive enough. (Oh yeah, and there’s the charity work.)
You like to bring your valuables with you when you fly. Jewellery, chocolates, your chihuahua, whatever it is you want to know your bags will be waiting for you safe and sound at the other end of the flight. So if someone tells you they have lost your luggage they better have a damn good reason. And they better take you away from your mobile phone.
In 2008, Naomi Campbell pleaded guilty to a charge of assaulting airport police. Allegedly, when British Airways staff told the model they had lost one of her bags, Naomi was not happy. She proceeded to swear at the cabin crew and, after the police were called, she struck one PC with her “formidable platform boots with stiletto-style heels,” as the officer recalled.
Naomi apologised to the police officers, but according to her lawyer she was “not quite so sorry” about her behaviour towards British Airways.
