The ads came before the game started, SMART, not as many people watching, but after kick-off, its $5 mil a pop.

I'll bet there's just Random McRandomson cruising the NetJets website pricing out their next vacation using their MarquisJet card... then realizing they don't even make that much money in a year.

net jets must be hard up

Net Jets must be hard up to have to spend the money to advertise their product on the super bowl and spent that kind of money. Must be very desperate for new customers.

Your flamebait. It was lame. Instructordude and Browntothebone are much better at it than you. :)

Boy, don't I know it... nothing screams "dying company" like advertising on the Super Bowl.

You may also want to warn Pepsi, Coke, Sony, and some of the other companies that are struggling to keep their heads above water. I'd be particularly wary of Anheuser-Busch -- they bought nine 30-second ads, so beer sales must be really down this year.

If you're going to troll here, you're going to have to do better. The bar is pretty high.

:rolleyes:

What do you think is going through the minds of the pilots that are going to be furloughed at Netjets? Maybe save the stupid advertising and let me keep my job... What an egotistical move by Netjets to advertise. Or are they really hurting that bad?

That rejection letter letter didn't wear off yet?


Funny post, but don't bother, you missed the point of this thread.

The point is that AT LEAST some kind of aviation company is advertising during the super bowl. Our industry sucks right now and there are a lotta guys/gals outta work. How about you help stick with us on here?

In this economy im glad they spent the money to do that. You should be glad that aviation was represented in the ad's.

Not exactly a stellar track record for internet companies.

How do people think that advertising before the most watch even of the year is a bad idea? Where did you guys go to business school, Kinder-tots Childcare?

What do you think the Netjet pilots that are about to get furloughed think about the the ads? Maybe the money spent on the ads could have saved their jobs?

I don't know if the company has any immediate plans on furloughing.... they keep saying no. For the sake of argument, let's say that the company believes furloughs are imminent, but they think that through advertising they can get enough new customers to prevent furloughs. Then, shouldn't all the pilots be excited that management took such a bold move to win new customers and save jobs?

I do not think that putting an ad on tv is a sign of weakness. Certainly there is a PR value, either in enticement or maintaining and image of exclusivity, regardless, it's in furtherance of the business. If advertising works, then the business improves (or in tough times, the business doesn't erode as quickly). Regardless, if the benefit to the business is positive, then regardless of potential furloughs, the ads were in the best interest of the company, furloughed and non-furloughed pilots.

Just my $0.02.
