INDUSTRY ALERT

Posted on March 6, 2009 by LCT Magazine

KEEP YOUR EYE OUT: For any TV reports in the New York area, possibly NBC Channel 4, about executives supposedly abusing limousine or Town Car service. We shouldn't put it past politicians and the media to start targeting clients in the back of Town Cars with class warfare labels.  . .

Chauffeured transportation companies runk the risk of being badmouthed, along with charter jets, resport/spas, hotels, and any business that provides top quality service. Economic setbacks and crashes generate irrational streaks that can consume the very companies, people, and forces that know how to turn things around. OPERATORS, BEWARE. You cannot allow chauffeured vehicles to become another recessionary bogyeman. LCT will be sure to put out some talking points if/when the situation arises.

Just a thought, but I can't help but wonder how many tax dollars have been spent on the travel, including rental cars and hotel stays, of government employees versus the business travel expenses of the corporate sector which are entirely paid for by the companies themselves. -- M.R.
