    Haha

    Capitalism is full a bunch of self-centered Elitists like this. What else were you guys expecting?

    Actually, Citi is hiring here in North Carolina.

    Citi has the Government Travel Card program since November 08.

    I heard that at the same time they were also selling 2 older jets for 25M each so it all balances out in the end. Where's the beef?

    I'll bet that new jet has a smaller carbon footprint with improved efficiency.

    Compared to two older jets? I bet you are right.

    Citi can fly commercial just like the rest of us as far as I'm concerned.

    Yes, and the president can take a taxi but it wouldn't be very rational now would it?

    What's the difference between CITI and the US Gov't? Nothing! They are both broke! Ba-da-ch!

    I have since read that they ordered this NEW Jet a while ago, also that at that time they considered themselves to be flush with cash.
    Unable to understand why they would order a Jet built in France, by a French Company.
    Guess Boeing do not build Jets such as these?

    Apparently, they have decided NOT to buy the new jet.

    Citi has already answered that this purchase was set way in advance and that canceling would result in huge penalties. This plane is suppose to help reduce their air fleet, and they intend to charter it out.

    See? A way around every scandal.
