Jester - Don't all CEO's salaries have to be set by an independant body from the board of directors? Our board are not paid by the company and make a call on ALL salary levels specifically setting the executive. It has to stand up to regulation and be jusitified.
We have No bonuses and we travel within the UK only (at the cheapest rate!).
So I don't think all CEO's are spending but its like everything - the few ruining it for the masses...
