The Bombardier Global 5000 private jet I flew on had meeting areas, a dining room, and sleeping space.
The food and drinks we were served were delicious.
Chartering is worth every penny because of the perks and convenience.
VistaJet is the largest private charter company in the world, with a fleet of Bombardier Global and Challenger aircraft.
At a ceremony in Montreal, Canada, the 10th Bombardier Global 7500 private plane was delivered. The 100th Global 7500 was delivered to a customer.
At the official delivery, Insider was able to tour the giant plane, which features several living areas and a private bedroom.
Bombardier just delivered its 100th Global 7500 business jet built for the ultra-wealthy that has a private bedroom.
After the ceremony, media boarded a Bombardier Global 5000 aircraft and flew to New Jersey.
The Global 5000 can connect cities like New York and London and Seattle and Tokyo.

One-way rates are thought to be between $12,000 and $20,000 per hour, according to Forbes.
Although I will never be able to afford a large business plane, it was a treat to see how wealthy people travel.
My journey began at the airport where we were driven to the airplane.
We were not required to go through security before boarding the jet because our driver entered the ramp via a gate. The transfer was quick and easy.
After showing my passport to the captain, I was eager to explore the jet and meet the cabin hostesses, which is what VistaJet calls flight attendants. Both of them went through specialized training to work on private flights.
There is one living space in the front of the plane.
There is a dining room in the middle.
A second conference or meeting space in the back can be closed off with a curtain. The jet can carry 13 passengers and sleep seven.
The leather chairs in the front living space were more comfortable than the domestic business class chairs on the flights. The seats have a leg rest and a deep recline.
The dining section has four chairs, while the living space has two chairs.
If you travel with kids, you can use the wood tables between the seats to work, eat, or play games.
The seats and couch can be turned into beds.
The back of the plane has a cargo area and a spacious lavatory.
The cabin hostesses prepare food and drinks in the galley in the front.
There is a printer and plenty of work space on the counter.
A handheld iPod can control things like lighting and sound.
There areadjustable window shades.
There are cupholders.
I was impressed with the size of the cabin. I was able to move between the seats without feeling cramped.
There was no sound overlap when I was sitting at the dining table because the front living space and dining area are connected. I could hear the person across from me.
The engines on the back of the plane were loud. It was difficult to ignore the sound when seated in the bathroom.
The flight from Montreal to Teterboro took about an hour and a half, and we were able to eat onboard.
The cabin hostess put up a table with a table cloth, plates, napkins, and utensils. She put butter on the table.
We were given a menu with several options before we left. I wanted to try the food and drinks.
Due to time, we were unable to try the entree, but we did try almost everything else on the list.
There is fruit.
There are sweets.
I ate as much cheese and meat as I could. I found the flavors to be bold and delicious despite the fact that passengers lose a third of their ability to taste in the air.
The other options were also good, especially the bruschetta, which was presented nicely on the plate.
bottomless wine and champagne was served with our meal. There are also regular drinks like soda, water, and coffee.
The white wine is made to enhance taste when cruising at high altitudes.
The cabin hostesses began to prepare the plane for landing. They put our belongings in a safe.
We arrived at Atlantic Aviation around 8 p.m. after we were on the ground.
Customs was quick and painless because we were flying internationally. We simply went to the Customs and Border Protection office and showed our passports.
I knew that the Global 5000 private jet experience would exceed expectations. The cabin hostesses went above and beyond for their passengers and the food was delicious.
Flying private is a luxury that I will not be able to do on the regular, but I can see how it is worth it to those who can afford it.
