There’s a new start up in Las Vegas called Love Cloud, with the slogan “What Happens Over Vegas Stays Over Vegas!”
Here’s how their website describes the experience:
When you arrive at the Airport you will be greeted by your very own pilot who will walk you to the aircraft and answer any questions you have. Prior to boarding the aircraft your pilot will explain the simple but essential safety instructions and will give you a full safety briefing. Once on aboard, your pilot will let you know when he is ready to start the aircraft and that it is safe to begin the flight. Seat belts must be worn during taxi, takeoff, and landing. Your pilot will notify you when you and your partner may remove your seat belts.
It will only take the pilot 10 to 15 minutes to reach the cruising altitude of 5,280 feet or exactly one mile high above Las Vegas. At that time, your pilot will notify you that it is safe to remove your safety belts. You and your loved one will remain totally undisturbed for that time and the only thing that you will hear is the hum of the engines.
You have the option of bringing your own playlist of music to play from our wireless sound system or you can pick, choose, and/or create your own playlist of songs from our own Love Cloud music collection. We have provided a comfortable custom cabin with pillows, cushions and blankets to relax on.
After the flight you will be presented with His and Her Mile High Club VIP Certificate Cards and will then have a photo next to the aircraft so that you have both a picture and card to remember your romantic adventure by.
The prices are $799 for a 40 minute flight, $999 for a 60 minute flight, and $1,299 for a 90 minute flight.
I have two thoughts:
- Those poor, poor, poor pilots. They better be paying them good money!
- There are classy ways to join the mile high club (Emirates and Singapore A380s, for example) and not so classy ways to join the mile high club. I think this qualifies as the latter…
