He used to have his own business jet (the "indefensible"), but now supposedly uses NetJets everywhere. I heard a rumour he has a share of a BBJ, but I don't know if that's been confirmed.

Actually for a while, Warren Buffet wouldn't fly. He would drive everywhere. And from the pictures above, Southwest would probably be his choice over the Concorde. He is pretty tight on his wallet. His home in Omaha is not even that outstanding. Nothing big, just a place to live. But anyways, his company a lot of the time uses a BBJ and the Gulfstream. He loves the Gulfstream company and tries to lure them to his investors.

With Warren being from Omaha, we see NetJets in and out of Eppley Airfield all the time. I believe their registrations all end in QS. Seen the G-IV SP, a Hawker, and a couple Citations.
