In the little picture there are 11 windows on one side. I don't know the layout of this plane but usually that should allow more than 12-18 passengers.

The number of windows has nothing to do with how many seats there will be. These jets are made for a luxury/comfortable flight and typically there are more than just traditional airplane seats in the passenger area. It is a great way to fly if you have a large group to split the cost.

Why can't they buy American made planes. Glad I don't have the money to fly in their plans. I'm also glad I'm not a stock holder

Warren Buffet is one of the Obama economic geniuses that are getting America back on track...NOT

After finding out how much Buffet is licking the boots of Obama I cancelled by Geico insurance policy as Berkshire Hathaway controls Geico.

Also, FYI Progressive Insurance Founder Peter Lewis has given millions to liberal/socialist groups like ACORN, ACLU and moveon.org . I guess the company name explains his view.

I vote also with my wallet. I do not support unamerican or socialist agenda organizations.

I have to agree with Steve , I'm glad they are expanding in Columbus , but I wonder how much higher the cost would have been to buy comparable planes in America . If you can .

Probably the same reason why the state and city of columbus gave NetJet$ million$ in tax break$ to expand their facility at CMH (last time I checked Warren Buffet was a multi gazillionaire). Can you say "corporate welfare"?

And the democrats say it is only the R's that give in to corporate welfare.

The fact is Obama received more from Wall Street than any other POTUS before. Between the unions and the banks and wall street, Obama had record campaign money.

Momma always said you should let Americans build your planes. But Lt. Dan said, who gives a shrimp's arse about millionares and their mode of travel. I have to abide by both.

So instead of investing in their employees with real raises and bonuses, the company instead invests billions in the purchase of foreign aircraft for fractional sales when the private aviation market is trending daily towards charter and commercial.

I must be missing something and happy not to work for this company.

I am sure Boeing is glad most people in the world don't think like many of you. May the best plane for their business win.

NetJets made almost $1 Billion in profits last year. Probably 90% of their fleet is made in America - Textron, Gulfstream and Hawkers. Supposedly Bombardier is being more aggressive than Gulfstream who is the only other major player in this long range, large body private aviation market. Also, the range should exceed G550s. They were ready to move out of state before Strickland and Fisher stepped in with the help of Wexner, Gee and a host of others to convince Santulli to stay here. They have about 1700-1800 high paying jobs and add a ton of corporate and individual tax revenues. They just handed out bonuses last week.
