Google Party Plane
From the Wall Street Journal online comes this story about Google Inc. founders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, and the lawsuits surrounding the conversion of a used Boeing 767 widebody into an unusually large private party jet.
The 767-200 typically carries 180 passengers and is three times as heavy as a conventional executive plane, but hey, I guess billionaires have lots of friends to cart around, right?
From the article it looks to me like these billionaires are reluctant to pay the contractor for the design renovations to their extravagant toy.
I didn't expect billionaires to be such cheapskates.
