    Sell corporate Jet(s)?

    90% of big companies need corporate transportation.
    The planes are simply a tool if used right and not abused. What company should have their CEO/CFO etc. in an lobby 12 hr. for a two hour meeting. These guys have 5 stops a day in those aircraft. just because most of you pack a lunch doesn't mean you shouldn't understand the demands of modern business.

    Now the F and GM thing was a P/R disaster.

    • They aren't a big company anymore at least not in the league with those that merit two jets . I started there it was a Fortune 50 CO now what 400? Out of the S&P 500!! They should enter into a lease coop share arrangement for jet time . I understand the convenience these provide having been allowed to use one on a couple of occassions but really it is an ego thing . Part of moving HQ to Covington was to be close to a large airport to reduce the need for corp aviation.

      Buy time share of a jet or something like that eliminate the cost of running an aviation dept.

        I agree in this case.
        When a company is profitable however, having your own flight dept. can be not only productive but comforting as well. Knowing the quality of the flight crew being one VERY important aspect as well as security concerns. Especially in large companies such as GM, Ford.
