The Times Explains Why Taking Private Jets to Summer Camp Makes Sense


Actually, not really. The justification that private jet trips to drop off kids at summer camp in Maine add up financially because “families could rent a seven-person turboprop plane starting at $3,800 for a round trip in one day, making the price competitive with some commercial flights” assumes an awfully large brood. Nor does the paper do an exceptional job of proving the widespread existence of said trend (“One private jet broker, Todd Rome of Blue Star Jets, said his summer-camp business had jumped 30 percent over the last year,” etc.), but it does make for an entertaining read.
