Forget the shuttle, take a Hermes chopper to the airport?

The white chopper with ribbons in the classic Hermes orange painted along the sides can carry four passengers and will operate up to 22 flights a day starting September 16.
The helicopter -- dubbed the "l'Helicoptere par Hermes" -- is the first Hermes chopper in Japan and is part of a fleet of Eurocopters to be used for the service.
The chopper service is between Akasaka and Sakura heliport near Narita with a limo to ferry people from there to the airport.
Of course, the ride doesn't come cheap: passengers will have to fork out 75,000 yen ($790) for a one-way ride-30 minutes.
"This service is for business executives who want to buy time," said spokeswoman Kyoko Morisawa. "But I'm afraid no food or drink services will be offered on board."($1 = 95.40 Yen).
Will this service having the Hermes brand really attract the clients and justify the price?

What is the likelyhood of this happening again within our lifetime?

Never in the history of the world has
there ever been a credit bubble of the
recent magnitude.
All made possible by a worldwide fiat
monetary system, which has been
mismanaged by the exorbitant use of
the printing press.

Urgent! Message to the Heads of all Governments:

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom.
What one person receives without working for, another
person must work for without receiving.
The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to
work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend,
is about the end of any nation.
You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
~~~~~ Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931 - 2005 ~~~~~
