Celebrities and Private Jet Travel -in Pictures, NetJets Prevails in IRS Lawsuit, FAA Notam for Super Bowl

This is what we found interesting for today’s post: The first article is a selection of pictures of celebrities and private jets from the UK telegraph. There are pictures ranging in dates from the 1970’s to present day. Then as now, the rich and famous have travelled in style. Next is a story that we have been covering since 2011. It involves fractional powerhouse NetJets and the IRS. You know you are big when you are willing and able to take on the IRS. It looks like NetJets has partially prevailed over the IRS regarding abatement of federal excise taxes that we have to collect in the charter industry. Since our readers travel quite a bit, we have an article about the Radisson Hotels winning TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards for 2015. Last is the FAA notice for air traffic for the Super Bowl which is being played on Sunday.

If you like what you read or have any comments, feel free to leave them at the bottom of the post, and if you have any ideas for content you would like to see, please send it to us.
