Chapter 698 – Chartering a flight
Buy me a coffee or tip me on or .
To show how wealthy he was, Feng Yu had to take care of manydetails. For instance, a super tycoon would never take the plane together withothers.
Many tycoons in the US have their own private jets. But thiswas not possible in China. The Fu Family and Li family also have their privatejets. But their planes were not suitable to fly long distances.
So, Feng Yu decided to charter a flight!
“What the hell are you thinking? Even if you are going tothe US, is there a need to charter a flight? You have too much money until youdon’t know how to spend it?” Hou Haitao grumbled.
“Just tell me if you can help me or not. This is veryimportant. I am going to meet an important client. In the US, public image is vital.This is also to show them our financial strength.” Feng Yu replied.
“Then just go and charter a flight. Why are you looking forme? Are you trying to ask me to help you get a discount?” Hou Haitao looked atFeng Yu speechless. How many people are you bringing to the US? Are you really goingto charter a flight?
“How do you know? I want a plane with the biggestfirst-class section. Also, I need to meet with all the crew first. I need topass some instructions to them.”
Hou Haitao looked at Feng Yu warily. “Are you thinking of doingbad things? What instructions are you going to give them? You also do not knowhow to fly a plane!”
“It is business-related. I cannot tell you everything. Thoseforeigners are all very arrogant. They might find fault over the smallestdetail and demand harsh conditions. Or maybe our conversations on the plane area leak by the crew?” Feng Yu starts to talk nonsenses. He only wants to ask thecrew to help him put on a show.
“You always have all sort of reasons. I will help you askaround.”
“Don’t just ask. You must make sure this matter is settled.This is very important to me! It is about my ‘face.’ ”
Hou Haitao stared at Feng Yu angrily. “I knew it. What youjust said is all rubbish! You only want to look good in front of others!”
“Just hurry up. I am waiting. It would be best if the flightis scheduled tomorrow morning.”
Hou Haitao contacted a leader of Beijing Capital Airlinesand told him about Feng Yu’s request. Feng Yu wants to charter a plane with alot of first-class seats, from Beijing to New York. Preferably departingtomorrow morning.
Huh? Charter a flight?
The leader of Beijing Capital Airlines was stunned. China’stop officials did have personal planes when they were on official duties. Sometravel agencies do book out all the economy seats for their clients. But he hasnever heard of anyone chartering the whole flight for a business trip! And hestill requests for a plane with the most first-class seats!
“Old Hou, if the whole flight is chartered, we have toinclude the ticket prices for every seat on the plane. This will be an insane amount.”
Hou Haitao glanced at Feng Yu and then said: “Stopbullshitting me. Is your tickets from Beijing to New York selling well? Give mea discount. I will tell him to use your airlines when his company’s staff goeson business trips.”
The airline companies were now operating as privatecompanies. The tickets were already discounted as the planes were always notfull. Although Hou Haitao kept saying Feng Yu was wasting his money, he stilltries to help him get a discount.
“Ok, then. I will give you a 15% discount. Which company isthis? How come he needs to charter a flight?”
“Feng Yu’s company.”
“Feng Yu? Which Feng Yu?”
“Who did you buy your Soviet Union planes from?” Hou Haitaoreminded him.
“That Feng Yu from Tai Hua Trading?”
“What do you think? Other than this, Feng Yu, who else canmake me call you? Ok. I will leave everything to you. Let’s meet up in theafternoon. I have something else to discuss with you.”
“Mr. Feng, what did you say? You have chartered a flight toNew York?” Victor was shocked. How rich was Feng Yu? Was there a need tocharter a flight when going overseas?
“Our aviation security is quite strict here. I had wanted tobuy a private plane as I do not like to travel with strangers. This is why Icharter a flight every time I travel. Anyway, it does not cost much.” Feng Yu casuallyreplied.
Chartering a plane does not cost much? Even if the livingexpenses in China was much lower than the US, but the air tickets were muchmore expensive compared to the US. The was an extravagant behavior, and it wasstill a long-distance flight!
“Mr. Feng, please use the special entrance over here.” Astewardess leads them over to a special entrance at the airport.
The row of bodyguards walked over and went up the plane tomake a security check, before letting Feng Yu and Victor enter the plane.Another group of people boarded the plane and were seated at the back.
“Mr. Victor, there is coffee, cigar, wine, cigarettes onboard. If you need anything, just let the stewardess know.”
“Oh, ok. I will.” Victor nodded.
“Mr. Feng, everyone is on board, and we can leave anytime.”A man in pilot uniform walked over and reported.
“Let’s go.” Feng Yu nodded. He pretended to be familiar withall these operations.
The plane took off, and the stewardess walked over: “Mr.Feng, is it as usual?”
Feng Yu nodded. The stewardess poured a cup of tea for FengYu and then turn to Victor. “Sir, what would you like?”
This was an eye-opener for Victor. This was a real tycoon.Feng Yu must have been chartering flights when he travels. Even the stewardessdoes not need to ask and knows what he wants. Also, Feng Yu was able to get thepassports for so many people within a short time. This shows how influentialFeng Yu was.
For many years, Victor felt proud in China because he wasAmerican. His country was powerful, and he was rich. But after today, he darenot to be arrogant and proud in China. China was a mysterious country. Who knewthat there was someone so rich and influential in China.
“Mr. Victor. It is boring. Shall we play poker?” Feng Yuasked.
“Poker? Our rules should be different from China.” Victorhesitated. But the flight was more than 10 hours, and he got nothing to do.
“How about BlackJack? The rules should be the same.” Feng Yulaughed and waved his hand. A man wearing a dealer uniform walked over. Thefeature of a dealer’s uniform was no pockets.
Victor frowned. Who brings a dealer along when traveling?This Feng Yu likes to gamble?
“Mr. Victor, it would be boring if we are playing Blackjackwithout any bets.” Feng Yu smiled and looked at Victor.
Victor had been to Las Vegas a few times and likes togamble. But he knew his bet was nothing compared to Feng Yu.
“Mr. Feng, I do not have much money with me.”
“It’s fine. We are just playing for fun. How about 400 USDper bet? I will be the banker. If your men are interested, they can also joinin.” Feng Yu said. He suggested 400 USD per bet was because Blackjack’s payouthas 1.25 times, 1.5 times and double. It will be easier to calculate if it was400 USD.
400 USD? This was not consider a large amount and Victorcould afford it. He nodded, but he did not ask his assistant to join. He feltFeng Yu was only being courteous and did not really mean it when he said to askhis assistant to join.
“Ok. Let’s play a few games for fun.”
