Air Miles Andy Strikes Again
Prince Andrew chartered a Dassault Falcon 9000 to fly with a bodyguard and two officials to promote British business in the ex-Soviet nation. Some say that he should have used a scheduled flight even though he went as an ambassador for British interests. The visit as well as the flight raised concerns according to an article in the Daily Mail. Prince Andrew's close relationship with President Aliyev and many visits to the country have led some to speculate that Andrew has personal business interests in Azerbaijan. The Queen opted earlier this year not to get a private jet because of the poor economy.
