There Was a Private Jet Traffic Jam at Mayweather-Pacquiao
I can’t speak directly on all the reasons that go into one’s using a private jet rather than any other mode of transportation, but I imagine one of the big selling points is that you don’t have to deal with traffic jams. Every rule has an exception, though, and yesterday the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao fight resulted in a private jet traffic jam on the McCarran Airport tarmac in Las Vegas.
Photos taken yesterday before the fight show a whole fleet of private jets placed wing-to-wing – so much so that the airport had to close its landing space to all private jets for a certain period. Here’s my favorite of the photos, which shows the private jet traffic jam looking eerily like a game of Tetris:

Below you can see a few more photos of yesterday’s private jet traffic jam resulting from the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, as well as a video from none other than Reggie Miller – the lesson being, if there are enough private jets in a given place to cause a traffic jam, people will definitely notice.
