Corporate Jets for Spouses
I have posted a number of times on the scandal of corporate jets.
Here is another one. The first paragraph gives you the flavor of the entire story. Enjoy!
Lublin, Joann S. 2007. “For CEO Spouses, Corporate Jets Are the Perfect Perk.” Wall Street Journal (30 June): p. A 1.
“When Nicki Mulally wants to travel, she can usually hop on one of Ford Motor Co.’s Falcon twin-turbo jets. The reason: She’s married to Alan Mulally, Ford’s chief executive. To woo Mr. Mulally from Boeing Co. last fall, Ford promised that his wife, five children and guests could fly on corporate aircraft without him, as long as he authorizes the travel. Personal flights by Mr. Mulally and family members cost Ford $172,974 during his four months with the auto maker last year. A Ford spokesman declines to disclose the family-member and guest component of that sum.”
