“GE Board in Dark on CEO’s Use of Extra Jet,” The Wall Street Journal, October 30, 2017 B1. As if it weren’t bad enough that the CEO flies on the company plane, it appears that he brought a second plane along, just in case.

Might there be gaps in the compliance program? If this slipped through, what else is out there?
