Private jet. Just saying those words make you feel like you're in a rap video. Or any movie starring Michael Douglas. And after seeing the price of round trip tickets to Vegas for your upcoming epic bachelor party weekend, you probably thought, “You know what? I wonder how many guys it would take to make it worth getting a private jet!”
Then we compared those quotes to the cheapest fares for 15 coach and first-class tickets on multiple US airlines for the same weekend. And guess what? Even factoring in Spirit’s fee for pressurized oxygen, it’s still waaaaay cheaper to fly commercial. As in thousands of dollars. That said, however, if your bachelor party budget is more than your wedding’s -- or just wanna know how much a private jet actually costs -- here are a few handy charts.
