I don’t think I’ve ever been this jealous of a cat before…
Cat flies the Comlux SkyLady across the Atlantic
Comlux, which is a Zurich-based company specializing in private aviation, posted a video on its social media of “special 4-legged guests living their best life up in the sky during a transatlantic flight.” In the cute 30 second video, the adorable cat can be seen stretching near the windows, and even looking outside.
There’s not much context here, probably by design. Due to Comlux’s private nature, public flight tracking isn’t available for this jet, so we don’t even know what transatlantic route the flight operated.
Presumably the jet wasn’t chartered for the cat, but rather the cat’s family simply took their pet along on this swanky flight. Hopefully the cat was able to enjoy Meow Mix’s finest caviar selection on this flight.
The ability to take the family pet on a flight is one huge benefit of private aviation, since I tend to think that putting pets in the cargo hold is rather cruel, and there are significant size limitations on in-cabin pets when traveling on airlines.
What kind of a private jet was the cat flying?
This video was filmed on Comlux’s SkyLady, which is a Boeing 767-200ER wide body private jet. The plane was first manufactured in 2001, and was initially operated by the government of Kazakhstan for about a decade. Then in 2011 it was taken over by Comlux, and finally in 2020 it was fully refurbished, bringing it up to its current standard.
The plane has a range of 6,700nm, and can seat up to 55 people, though I imagine most people chartering the plane are flying with significantly fewer people than that. The plane features a living room, dining room, bedroom, and much more.
Comlux posted a cute video of a cat enjoying a transatlantic flight on a private jet. We don’t know a whole lot else, but goodness it’s adorable (and I’m usually more of a dog person).
