Boeing spent $500,000 more than it previously disclosed on personal private jet trips for top executives

·1 min

Embattled airplane maker Boeing revealed that it had spent an additional $546,000 on personal air travel for four top executives, including the CEO, bringing the total cost to $1.9 million since 2021. This disclosure comes amid increased scrutiny on the company for safety incidents and an executive shakeup. Personal air travel is one of the perks granted to executives, which also includes ground transportation and lodging. The reported costs only include incremental expenses, such as fuel and crew travel, and not the cost of corporate jets or flight crew salaries. Boeing has been facing financial challenges since the grounding of its 737 Max and the impact of the pandemic.
