    Network Rail bosses prefer plane travel.

    Network Rail bosses spent more than 11,000 a week on flights

    NETWORK Rail bosses spent more than 11,000 a week on flights last year as they let staff use planes instead of trains for thousands of journeys.

    The firm, which is responsible for the upkeep of lines and stations, used planes more than 100 times every week for journeys within the UK.

    In contrast, rail passengers had to endure industrial action and delays, despite some of the highest fares in Europe.

    Staff working for Network Rail made 5,876 domestic journeys by air last year, compared with 3,846 in 2014.

    That says a lot about how the Network Rail managers value rail-travel.

    It looks a bit like the old saying of "those, and such as those" if you ask me.

    The quicker these franchises are taken away from these wasters the better.

    Any opinions ?

    While that is terrible, I am not surprised that the rail bosses prefer to travel by air.

    It is great that they are not forced to go by train.

    When you say "great", I hope that is sarcasm as they SHOULD be made to travel by the railways that they govern.

    I think it is outrageous that these rail-bosses should be able to fly up and down the country using our hard-earned fare income when they don't give a damn about our comfort or convenience.

    Yes, and it is our money that allows these fat-cats to travel by plane when we are forced to travel by train.

    The quicker the rail services are nationalised once again and these fat-cats are sacked the better.
