Millennials may consider themselves an unlucky generation financially, but according to private jet booking platform Stratajet they still have sky-high ambitions. Literally.

The platform consulted its database of 10,000 members and found the fastest-growing customer group was the 18-24 year-olds, while the number of women searching for private jets has doubled since 2016 and is rising faster than men.

Private jets have often been dubbed the domain of male business executives, but Stratajet says the market has opened up to an increasingly tech-savvy and younger private flier.

The most active segment is the 25-34 age group which carried out nearly a third of all searches on the site, while over two-thirds of the searches were performed by customers aged 44 or younger. Stratajet said this bucked the industry average of passengers being over the age of 40 and it wasn't just searches; these translated into bookings too.

Stratajet offers a search engine to compile costs of a range of aircrafts for users, which can then be booked instantly, providing quick access to private jets.

Jonny Nicol, founder and chief executive of Stratajet, said: "As consumers become increasingly time-poor, they require instant access to a range of services and private jet travel should be no different. So it is encouraging that this data demonstrates a much-needed shift in the mentality of the private aviation industry."

We always have a sneaking suspicion that there are things the flight attendants aren't telling us when we hop on a plane. This isn't rooted in paranoia as much as in wanting to know all the secrets and inner workings of the tin cans we fly in.Our curiosity was recently satiated by a Reddit thread called, "Flight Attendants of Reddit: What Do the Passengers Not Know?" Town & Country originally reported on the thread.As you might expect, there's plenty of info about which we're kept in the dark (and some of us actually like it that way...).
