A mite too rich for my blood

In response to 141778: Jet Q&A, posted by Dan F on Wednesday, 14 February 2018, at 5:53 p.m.

Wow I considered this when I brought my kennel over (6 dogs 3 cats) but all the cost estimates were horrendous. The estimated fixed costs to fly a super mid-sized is about 1600/hour then you add variable costs of pilots etc. I found that it would cost about $25K - $40K from LAX. Just a bit out of my budget for an 8 passenger plane ride. Any smaller jet will only get you about 1/2 way here ;-.]

My guess is it would be about 4k/passenger assuming you can find all 8 to go at once.

As it was I figure it cost 10k to get everyone here and it was no fun because at the time United had just stopped using a big enough jet to bring all the pets here non-stop.
