United fired its CEO and two other vice presidents on Tuesday amid a corruption probe involving favors to the chairman of Port Authority NY and NJ which runs the NY area airports and the ports. Apparently United ran a money losing flight from Newark to Columbia, SC twice a week on Thursday evening and return on Monday morning for the sole purpose of getting the chairman of PANYNJ to his weekend home and back.

In India these kinds of money losing flights were common and AI was forced to run these. I am not sure if AI has any more of the sure money loser flights within the country.

I don't think AI ran any service solely to transport someone to his/her home and back twice a week.

Of course, this is not counting the 'official trips' that our 'leaders' make on AI aircraft.
