Flying off in a private jet is dream come true for many cos not everyone can afford its travel cost. It can suck up the monthly salary (sometimes more than that) of an average middle-class desi in a second. The cost of chartering a private jet can vary vividly according to the type of plane you choose, the destination that you want to travel, the time you book, and if it is a peak season or not. However, it is a luxurious experience that you can never get in commercial flights. LEISURE is the word.
So, we have curated 8 facilities that a private jet can offer:
1. You can take a nap on the bed
