New Private Jet For The Queen


According to the Daily Mail, Her Majesty might recieve her own private jet for 3 million British pounds. There are two planes used by the royal family, but these are quite old and unreliable. She will have to wait for the final decision until March 2010, but in the meantime she will fly by chartered planes.

The reason to buy her own private jet seems ridiculous: cost cutting. Reportedly last year the royal family flew 137,000 miles on 18 scheduled and 21 chartered flight. The total cost of these travels was 6,5 million pounds. (£ 167,000 per flight) Well, in comparison with that cost, £ 3 million is really cost cutting.

In the meantime to make waiting less boring, she will receive a new helicopter, because the leasing of the old one has expired. The heli will cost £ 500,000 per year.

Maybe it is just me who thinks she should try Ryanair or Easyjet instead. I am interested in your opinion.
