The definition of optimism

9 December 2008
Paul SnellA press release dropped into my inbox last week that struck me as the definition of optimism (Well, apart from the Italian eatery round the corner from our office that insists on putting out its tables for dining al fresco even now). Travel booking firm GetThere has signed an agreement with Virgin Charter to offer the use of private jets for business travel hire. I can see the benefit of booking this through your existing business travel provider, but private jet hire must be a tough sell at the moment. But maybe there are customers out there. Rick Wagoner, CEO of General Motors, will have to hire in future, after the company agreed to return the corporate jets it leases, having faced tough criticism from Washington.
