Why did Travis Barker take a private jet, not a commercial plane?

Barker reportedly doesn't like to fly in private jets, preferring commercial planes.

According to a TMZ report, the wife of Barker's business partner Chris Baker was about to give birth. That information has since been disputed.

A rep for DJ AM released the following statement Saturday evening: "Chris Baker did not ask for a jet to meet his wife in delivery because she's not even pregnant. A private jet had always been chartered as DJ AM had a private engagement today in Los Angeles."

The private plane crashed shortly after midnight, critically injuring DJ AM and Barker and killing four others on board, including Baker.
