Just wondering if any airlines out there have corporate aircraft for their execs. If there are any...what do they fly. Thanks!

If I had to venture a guess, I'd guess Mr. Al Baker, at QR, probably flies on their 319CJ, since its also to be available for charter.

Maybe QatarAirways could comment further.

Yeah QR have an A319CJ that flies for the government and available for charter. This month the aircraft carried the AC Milan football team. But it isn't really used to carry QR's execs around they fly Business or First Class on QR, it is not unusual to spot Al-Baker on your flight. The aircraft was going to be used for scheduled flights to ZRH and SIN but the plans never materialised because it used extensively by the government.

CX and several others have corporate jets but they are mainly for training. It doesn't make economical sense for an airline to have corporate jets for the executives to use when they can fly almost anywhere on their airline or by using their travel benefits on other airlines.

Well, what if they are flying somewhere to scout it out as a new destination? You don't want to fly your competition, or at least I wouldn't think you would

On Sunday, I had a family friend over for dinner and he was the former directer of Iraqi Airways until the quick crumpling of the airline in 1990 due to the Gulf war (was that a run on sentence?)

While a few of us engaged in long discussion last night, he mentioned how at one time, he ordered 10 Lockheed Jetstars II's for his airline. I found that quite remarkable considereing the size of the Iraqi commercial fleet.

Once he placed the order at the plant in Georgia, he was quickly flown back to JFK on the jetstar.

Actually I used to know the Director - Route Planning and Regulatory Affairs at US... he was based in Washington, and despite US serving CDG, he always flew on UA nonstop IAD-CDG on his frequent visits.

He always got complementary C class travel.

Nice guy, anyway, don't know if he's still there.

Cathay uses their Lears for pilot training...whether or not they are also used for corporate travel, i do not know. Also, I would fly the competition if i were on a "scouting run" for my airline. I would want to see how they do things and how my airline can outperform them.
