For Those Who Have Had a REALLY Good Year

June 26, 2012

Most of the manufacturers I've met are fairly modest in their tastes, but just in case Google bought your firm recently and you've got a pile of cash to dispose of, have I got a deal for you.

In The Know Experiences, a travel company, and PlaneClear, a private aviation firm, have teamed up to offer an Olympics travel package that is truly...Olympian.

The package gets you to London by private jet. You'll stay at the new Belgraves hotel, in the heart of Belgravia, where you'll enjoy a property that "blends traditional British hospitality with an American bohemian attitude." No, I don't know what that means either.

Then on to the Olympics. You can have seats to three events with the best seats possible or five events with "second level seating." The latter may mean sitting behind women with large hats, but again, I'm not sure.

You'll also get a day at a "prestigious Olympic Hospitality Tent" and leisure activities such as an "exclusive invitation to a private celebrity event at the world famous Box Nightclub or Yacht Party." I imagine the beer is warm but the champagne is nicely chilled. Say hi to Kim and Khloe for me.

The five-night package starts at $97,500. Challenger, Falcon, Gulfstream and Hawker aircraft are available. On the ground, you'll have to settle for a Mercedes S Class. I hate it when Bruce has the Batmobile tied up.
