    And has Sir Roger's sense of entitlement already been forgotten?

    What that sort of behaviour annoys the hell out of me, that's above board and legal spending as part of crazy life-long renummeration package.

    Which is pretty different from what we have here, which is against rules and/or illegal.

    Certainly was -- and the irritant there was the hypocrisy not any question that he'd acted illegally or even improperly in claiming a perk that, if my memory serves, was done away with back in the mid-90's.

  • giovanni tiso,

    He would argue (in fact, I think he did) that he traded that perk in exchange for a lower salary. But the man was voted into Parliament how many times? I don't begrudge him a lifelong discount on our flagship airline.

    Or rather, I wouldn't. I actually do in his case, since his shtick is privatisation and he couldn't expect that perk from a wholly privatised Air NZ.

    It's not a perk from Air NZ. The Government picks up the full tab. They don't even have to use Air NZ.
