You’re probably thinking about the odds of riding with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on a private jet is a million to one but you’re wrong. Just ask Mazen Dayen.
Dayen travelled from New York City to Los Angeles last Tuesday. Before his private flight left the Big Apple, Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian hopped aboard to share a ride, TMZ reported. The couple attended the recent Met Gala.
Dayen disclosed what it was like to be on board the private jet with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. His revelation hinted at activities that are typical of rich people based on his conversation with West. He mentioned Kim K slept for the entire flight.
“’Ye talked to him about watches, cars and the soaring price of real estate in NYC and L.A.,” TMZ said, recounting what the lucky passenger had told them.
Anyone can have the same experience as Dayen provided they have US$10,000 (AU$13,714) for the annual membership fee. The company, JetSmarter, is the airline version of an UberPool ride but at 30,000 feet, the publication noted.
Celebrities like actress Emily Ratajkowski, actor Jamie Foxx, and entrepreneur Daymon John have used the private jet service at one time or another, CNBC reported. Perhaps it’s another way to escape paparazzi at the airports. The publication cited the experience of Ed Mermelstein, a real estate attorney, who shared a jet with Foxx from White Plains to Atlanta.
“He was great, and very personable, talking with passengers throughout the flight. You never know who you will meet, and I now look forward to flying,” Mermelstein told CNBC.
JetSmarter’s founder and CEO Sergey Petrossov revealed that flying private is more than just about convenience or exclusivity. “Passengers and celebs will get a lot of networking value. Friendships and business relationships are created daily between our passengers,” Petrossov told CNBC.
Other high profile celebrities that fly aboard JetSmarter include baseball player David Ortiz, model River Viiperi, Chef Robert Irvine and stars of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, Josh Altman and Josh Flagg, New You revealed.
Ashley Benson, Chanel Iman, Scott Disick, Jill Zarin, and Frankie Grande are some of the other celebrities seen aboard the private jet, PRNewswire added.
