Hi There,
Do you get " Per diem or Expense reimbursed" at your company?
What is your hour/daily rate?
Thanks
 
expensed:
Norm is $75 in conus , more Intl
Can go as high as $90 in some expensive US cities, just not every day.

It needs to be adjusted up as I don't like fast food or any junk food for that matter. Just not the right time yet to do it.
 
Just got word today, officially $10 breakfast, $15 lunch, $35 dinner and no alcohol reimbursed. Apparantly the 4 of us pilots covering 2 $8 million dollar airplanes need less of an allowance than our other 50,000 employees. :rolleyes:
 
Company AMEX for all expenses with VP HR handling the CC invoices. We've never gotten formal guidance on expenses but try to keep it around $60/day average in the small & medium-sized cities we normally fly to, with an understanding that larger markets cost more. A drink or two with dinner isn't looked down upon, and neither is our smoothie & coffee habit. Hotels are normally HGI/Courtyard quality, with the occasional Doubletree/Embassy/Hilton if there's a good FBO rate.
 
Thanks for the info...
So is it safe to say that in the corporate world, you get expenses reimbursed instead of perdiem?
 
Never heard of per-diem in corporate.

Everything on company amex if possible.

Meal guidelines seem to run 75 domestic / 150 Intl but eat what you want just have receipts.

A drink or two with dinner fine, no bar tabs. While it would be nice, I really dont expect the boss to pay for the partying.

Hotels are whatever is the good place to stay. Marriott/Hilton types US, JW/Hyatt/Intercont types overseas.

Mostly common sense.

We are a 3 pilot - 1 FA operation.

Same guidelines here, well except for the overseas, 3rd pilot (which we need) and the FA. :laugh:
 
Company CC, just turn the receipts in at the end of the trip/week.
 
We can do expense or per diem at our discretion. It depends on the trip, where we stay, who's comp'ing who, etc.
