Will Smith refused to board an Aer Lingus flight from Dublin to Manchester the other day because there were no first- or business-class seats. Instead, he chartered a plane for 10,000 pounds, or about $17,000 — for a flight that takes less than an hour. Will! How precious of you.
The Mirror quotes an Aer Lingus source: “It raised a few eyebrows when we heard because it seemed to be a bit of a snub. It surprised everyone because it’s a short flight and economy is still very comfortable.”
