When PR people’s expenses become the story

Further to the earlier story on PR people becoming the story, there’s an interesting piece in the San Francisco Chronicle on how the PR costs on the new expansion project at SF International airport have spiraled out of control.  The piece states that the senior consultant has racked up fees of $500,000 (@ $275 per hour) since the Summer of 2000 and how expenses have included first class plan tickets (@ $3,948) and hotel stays (@ $550).  While this all sounds outrageous,  a spokesperson for the project has rubbished the claims saying that the PR people traditionally stay a Days Inn (@$75) and fly economy.

The truth will out no doubt.
