Free paint jobs for private jets

While flight providers say they are happy with more manageable demand levels, the struggles with rising costs and supply chain issues are real, as we have reported.

One victim may have been South Florida-based Executive Airlink.

Its three Hawker 800XPs and King Air 90B were popular with on-demand brokers and several jet card programs.

It closed this week on short notice after a more than 30-year run.

Top legal minds tell us what could happen as Jet It remains grounded and shut May 23.

At the same time, it turns out that if you want to save money, you could be eligible for a free paint job at select German airports.
