I Wanna Be a Rock Star!
You and 12 of your closest friends want to head to The Golden State in style, but first-class is so passé. What would Britney do? Book a private jet online with Virgin Charter. Pick out a plane large enough to accommodate you and your entourage, enter your destination, and fly your own friendly skies (don’t forget your list of in-flight requests — green jelly beans take time to sort out). Cash-strapped celebs can bid on an “empty leg” flight which, in private-jet-speak, is the empty return flight of a booked leg. An empty leg flight from Hawaii to California, estimated at $27,250, could go for a fraction of that price depending on the auction winner. Virgin claims that buying “empty legs” is a greener, cheaper way to go since the airplane would fly back empty anyway. We just like the idea of stepping off the plane while waving to screaming fans. www.virgincharter.com
