Description

CBS News 11 reviewed thousands of pages of documents pertaining to travel expenses by executives and board members who oversee DFW International Airport. They discovered dozens of trips around the country and around the world where executives enjoyed first-class travel, accommodations and meals at the expense of airport users and taxpayers, at a time when the airport faced a multi-million dollar budget shortfall and had publicly announced plans to control expenses. They also found that the airport CEO was the highest paid airport executive in the United states and that he and dozens of other employees had car allowances for travel to and from work. They also reviewed executive compensation packages and discovered 100 airport employees who made at least $100,000 more than any other airport in the country.
