Steve Jobs’ private jet mostly grounded over the last six months

“Steve Jobs’s private jet has almost been grounded over the last six months,” Ben Charny reports for The Wall Street Journal.

“Apple says in a regulatory filing that it didn’t reimburse the CEO for use of his Gulfstream during the first three months of the year, and only $4,000 for the previous six months,” Charny reports.

Charny reports, “If he isn’t traveling, then he isn’t in China to negotiate personally for Apple’s first iPhone distribution deal in the world’s biggest cellphone market.”

“He remains active in the company more than three months into his leave, as The Wall Street Journal reported. It just doesn’t involve overnights to Beijing anymore,” Charny reports. “Mr. Jobs has been on a medical leave of absence, announced in January. To date, Apple execs have said only that they are looking forward to Jobs’ return to work in June.”
