Executives of large companies often use private planes for the business traveller. Many of these companies block their flight records so it's hard to find out details about executive jet use, and there is a lot of speculation as to whether some of these executives use company planes for personal use as well.
Reporters have been working to uncover more details about this issue, and some have fought lengthy battles to get their hands on public records of private jet travel. When looking at the records for companies like Nike and Columbia Sportswear, for example, it's hard to find proof of misuse. The flight records instead show that executives at these companies log exhausting travel schedules to keep up with the demands of global business. The executives at Nike, for example, logged over 4,600 hours on private jets in the last three years.
