Rising fuel prices are a major pain for most of us, but you just know things are going sour when even the super-rich have to give up their private jet and travel on a commercial airline.
Puff Daddy/Diddy/P.Daddy/P.Diddy/Puffy has decided that the cost of a private jet trip from L.A. to New York is just too high, even for him ($200,000 r/t), and he will be joining us on scheduled commercial flights for the time being. So, next time you are sitting up front on American Airlines, keep your eyes open, perhaps you’ll catch some of the bling!
Instead of whining, he’s even trying to fix the situation, and has made a video clip for his “brothers and sisters in Saudi Arabia” asking for some free oil for his jet. He’s also asking us to tell the next president to lower gas prices. I’m sure that will go a long way to getting rid of these horrible fuel surcharges.
