The most outrageous celebrity requests on private jets
Taking full advantage of their status and wealth, celebrities are known for appreciating the finer things and living the high life – and when they fly by private jet charter, things are no different. Join us as we delve into the most outrageous celebrity requests on private jets.
A flight to... nowhere
For one famous couple, life on the ground was getting too hectic. So to escape the non-stop celebrity life of exclusive parties and frantic crowds, they chartered a private jet to, well, nowhere. According to a private jet charter booking app, for six hours one A-list couple indulged in expensive wine and relaxed with onboard spa treatments, all before satisfying their taste buds with a gourmet meal prepared by a private chef accompanied by the live vocals of an onboard opera singer - truly the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle of Hollywood life. And, after six hours touring the clouds, the pair landed at the same airport they departed from, making this one of the most lavish celebrity dates ever.
Flowers, flowers, and more flowers
Nothing compares to the sweet scent of a fresh bouquet of flowers. Perhaps it was for this reason that a mystery celebrity requested a cabin filled with white Casablanca lilies for the duration of their private jet charter. We could spends hours speculating which diva requested this, but with songstresses Mariah Carey and Katy Perry, and musician Paul McCartney just a few of the A-list’s known floraphiles, we may never find the celebrity culprit.
Food for thought
Food has a huge impact on our mood, which may explain why some of the most outrageous celebrity private jet charter requests are food orientated. A private jet company shared how a celebrity customer insisted on tucking into a McDonald's Filet-O-Fish burger during their flight. They also demanded the burger was delivered fresh, meaning it had to be procured as the plane was ready to take off.
Other outrageous food-related celebrity requests include one star who would only board the private jet once it was stocked with Cool Ranch Doritos and Sparkling Ice Kiwi Strawberry. Another brought along a team of food tasters to ensure the chef-prepared private jet meal was perfect for their palette. And the most outrageous celebrity culinary request of all goes to the mystery star who wanted to light birthday cake candles during the flight. For safety reasons, open flames aren’t usually permitted on private jet charters, so this guest had to bring a firefighter on board her 50th birthday private jet charter to Florence to ensure she could enjoy a proper birthday celebration thousands of feet in the air.
First class fashion
Most celebrities take great pride in their appearance, as anyone who has read a fashion magazine or watched an awards ceremony knows. So it should come as no surprise that after a successful shopping spree, one celebrity faced a huge dilema: how were they going to get their haul of new outfits and latest fashion back to their home city? With a separate private jet charter, of course. Stocked with Birkin Bags, a private jet charter transporting fashion cargo makes our list as one of the most outrageous celebrity requests in history.
Relentlessly stalked by the paparazzi, celebrities must always look camera ready. This means that, in addition to luxury shopping sprees and even more exclusive delivery services, stars must plan their picture-perfect looks. And that is exactly what this secret celebrity does on their weekly cross-country flights. Along with their team of stylists, they utilize the flight time by trying on outfits, having fittings and alterations, and planning their everyday looks for the upcoming week. If this isn’t first class fashion, then we don’t know what is.
