"Jan. 31 — Enron executives and lawyers appear to be going bankrupt in style, traveling to bankruptcy court hearings in New York in the company's two remaining private jets......
An Enron spokesperson has confirmed a total of eight corporate jet trips to New York and Washington since the bankruptcy, saying the flights were more efficient than commercial travel.
A round-trip commercial flight, Houston to New York, could be as little as $365 in coach. According to aviation executives, the same trip on an Enron jet would cost tens of thousands of dollars.
The Enron executives seen leaving the airport Wednesday used the corporate jet to attend the funeral of J. Clifford Baxter, a former Enron executive who committed suicide on Jan. 25. Enron says that is the only nonbusiness trip since the bankruptcy....."

Funny how what goes around comes around. When Clinton was in office all White House docs relating to Monica were crucial to saving the "Presidency". Back then only one person was getting screwed (Monica). Now with these scum-sucking Enron execs are screwing hundreds of thousands of people simultaneously and suddenly relevant docs are irrelevant? Someone explain that to me. As much as I love this country you must admit it has the most sophisticated corruption scheme on Earth (soft money). And to think we put other countries down for gov't corruption. What a joke.
I don't care what anyone says about corporate jet travel, it's a luxury nothing more and nothing less. Just when all these Enron execs walked away with millions leaving their workers eating shite off the sidewalk they have the balls to fly G-Vs to DC. Someone please put these assholes in jail soon.
