BT was enjoying a much deserved vacation riding around in a Flops Beechjet with his wife as Flops furloughed another 50 some pilots I hear. Whats that Union doing for you guys?

You hear form where?

How about a source. If it is true this sucks, and it just doesn't get any better.

If not. Stop the freakin rumors. These times are difficult enough without the hearsay.

Best of luck to all.

Most likely is true. Also, if true, he paid for it and it wasn't free, as per IRS laws.

I don't see the conflict.

I would never name my source. But its a good one. Also If you dont believe it why dont you investigate yourself? I dont have to answer to you or anyone else If you are still empnoyed at flops I would suggest jumping ship by sept..

I am not a tax lawyer but I doubt he paid for it. The cost of utilizing a private plane is above his pay grade. Probably the 50 laid off paid for it..But keep drinking the kool aide..I figure thats all thats left there anyway is the senior kool aide drinkers. I know all my friends are gone

Since you're not a "tax lawyer", what are you basing your opinion on? Bitterness? Envy? As easy as that sometimes is, it does not reveal the truth. IRS rules stipulate that the cost/value of the personal use of business aircraft by employees must be added to said employee's income. It is normally added as some sort of imputed income and then taxed. So if the flew a 400 for 3 hours at the company's cost of $2k per hour, then BT owes taxes on $6k of imputed income.

The income would have been computed at the SIFL rate, so his income was less than $1K.

Actually, it would have been around $3500, depending on legs and miles and pax variables...

This is the formula...

Passengers x ((300% x .2312 x miles) + 42.26)
4 x ((3 x .2312 x 400) + 42.26)
1 hr flight in a beechjet with wife and 2 kids = $1280

Bob's use of corporate aircraft is part of his contract.

Now, wouldn't be nice if everyone had one.

It looks like they are playing musical chairs at CGF.

Who is going to be left standing without a chair?

Yeah, that's real professional. Your job is to fly, it shouldn't matter who. If you're assigned to fly Mickey Mouse, Tommy Lee or just repo legs your whole tour, than do it.

my bowles are fine. In fact, i was just taking a dump and started thinking about you....lol

what that means is, you have a long way to go before we will waste effort in flaming something you post.

Maybe it's best if you just read instead of posting here.

I've asked this before and it was ignored, but I would love to hear somebody try and make up an intellegent answer :

Did he go anyplace in that jet you couldn't have gone for free by using the milage programs you've earned flying commercially that the company paid for?

How about the points you get from the hotel reward programs you have. Did he stay in any hotels that you couldn't have stayed in for free with the amount of points you've earned that the company paid for?

Is the value of what you earned for perks the same or greater than the perks he used by being on a company jet? In other words, except for the fact that he flew on company equipment (he doesn't earn the points the way pilots do) should he be denied the right to free transportation as a perk? You get it. Why shouldn't he?

How many airline miles and hotel points do you have to get to cash in for a trip on a private jet? I can't find that info anywhere.

Pilots:

Okay pay. See the world, free travel, get out of traffic tickets while in uniform and chicks dig us.

Management:

GREAT pay. See an office, some free travel, pay every traffic ticket and chicks dig their money.
