CJI Five Minute Week – Friday August 5, 2017


Wheels Up King Air line up

… Or, the one where Alud surprises nobody and picks a Chinese-registered aircraft as his aircraft of the week.

In this week’s Five Minute Week, we take a look at Wheels Up, which is celebrating its fourth birthday this month.

Al spent some time talking to Wheels Up founder Kenny Dichter during the week, and talks us through the company’s current fleet and membership numbers.

He also spoke with XOJet boss Bradley Stewart, who gives us his perspective on the three categories of business aviation users that he currently sees.

Elsewhere, Crystal Cruises took delivery of its Boeing 777, so Matt gives us a rundown on what the aircraft and the company offers.

Finally, the aircraft of the week comes as no surprise.
