Eureka! We figured out why Hillary won’t let the press see her off:
THE LAST THING WE NEED IS ANOTHER BIG SPENDER IN THE WHITE HOUSE! CAN YOU BELIEVE $2 MILLION?
The campaign of Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has poured more than $2 million into the use of private jets this election cycle, according to a review of its expenditures.
Federal Election Commission documents reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon found that Hillary for America made a total of 48 payments from June 1, 2015, to Jan. 29, 2016, to Executive Fliteways, a New York-based private jet company, running up a tab of $2,128,293 for the campaign.
Executive Fliteways is considered “one of the largest independently owned and operated charter companies in the country” and boasts a fleet of private planes ranging from “mid-size,” which can seat seven or eight passengers, to “heavy,” which can carry 12 to 16 people.
While it is not clear which jet Clinton prefers on the campaign trail, or if they routinely switch between the jets they use, Clinton has been pinned on Executive Fliteways’ Falcon 900B “heavy jet” in the past, according to a media reports. Hillary boarded the plane, which burns 347 gallons of fuel per hour, shortly after laying out her campaign’s plan to combat global warming.

The Falcon 900B heavy jet carries a price tag of $5,850 per hour and comfortably seats 12 passengers. The luxury accommodations includes a full service galley, executive workstation, onboard WiFi, a full-size private lavatory, and a flight attendant for the “ultimate inflight experience,” according to the company’s website.
