Hi guys,

I'm curious about Kraft Heinz. I searched on here and found that Kraft once had a flight department prior to 2015, and I'd like to know if it still exists?

Kraft-Heinz are controlled by Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffett)/3G Capital who are both known to have very sharp cost cutting scissors so thinking it was dissolved.

Cheers - Tom

I'm sure they give a break on NetJets (another BH company) memberships...

Their 550 (as of about 4yrs ago) broke loose of a chock and ran into a C90 in BNA. Haven't seen it since.

The Heinz department was dissolved. The Kraft 550 went under management of EJM. I don't believe there is any in house flight department at this point.

I lived in Louisville for a few years. I never thought Humana and Yum would go to management companies ever. :eek:

You can thank Pelosi and the other 500ish thieves on capitol hill for demonizing corporate aviation during the auto bailout.

...And as soon as they walk away from the mic they go hop on a private plane at IAD and head out for Martha's Vineyard along with the donar...(I've seen it happen multiple times)...
