Cost of sending BBC broadcasters to cover events abroad

We're waiting for JOHN ARMSTRONG to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I would like to know how much it costs to send regular BBC broadcasters abroad to cover events when we already have BBC correspondents in most countries. Surely the anchor can broadcast from London instead of being in the actual country. Typical examples are Ben Brown in Zimbabwe, Emily Maitlis, and Laura Kuensberg. After giving their very brief opening gambit they immediately hand over to their local BBC correspondents. I would like to know whkat class of flights they take and the class of Hotel they use. Also the cost of both.

Yours faithfully,

John Armstrong
