I fly in private jets like Citations & Gulfstreams (for work) & there can be a lot of pressure in your ears depending on where you are going, I don't think it's a good idea to fly a baby in Gwen's condition, even in a PJ.
Driving is probably the safest route, sorry...
I'm also concerned with how bumpy the ride is. I have gotten sick on several flights on cessnas/private planes and I've never gotten sick on a commercial plane. Granted I'm flying with fighter pilots in the cessnas and they like to make them dip and do all sorts of crazy stuff, but I still puke. (FI LOVES being with a girl with a weak stomach.) But it just seems way too bumpy for a gentle little newborn. (Although, they would fly as smoothly as possible with a newborn on board.)
But I also can't imagine driving that entire way, so it seems like you could endure the bumpiness for a few hours? As long as the pressure wasn't a problem...
Ann, If you do drive, to someone else's point, the route needs to be planned carefully to make sure you don't get stuck out in Podunk somewhere. Maybe we could plan the trip along BDWers homes and you could stay with them along the way?
I still think your company should be paying for this!!!! Have you asked your HR person? They have an obligation to get you home!!
