Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

On the 21/10/2017 the Director of Editorial Policy and Standards, David Jordan attended a conference and according to data his flight cost the licence payer the equivalent of 19 tv licences = £2631.57 this was the cost of a first class flight why given licence payers are told BBC only purchase the cheapest flights possible then obviously that criteria wasnt used here . We also have evidence Jordan attended no meeting s on his first day why this mode of travel .

Yours faithfully,
John Gittos

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'First class travel'.

[ GIVE DETAILS ABOUT YOUR COMPLAINT HERE ] I have read your reply and it is stated that this was not a first class ticket , but given the amount of money involved £2631.57 it certainly was not an economy seat because I have gone through various airline websites and to no stretch of the imagination was this in ecomomy .So I will now ask the same question by stating was this a business class seat and if it was my question is still why . I did notice in the reply I got I was told it was not a first class ticket , but strangely not what category it was perhaps the writer thought I would obviously think then it was economy ticket and accept their reply .I feel quite angry that the BBC who on one hand talks endlessly about transparency tries every way possible not to live up to the rhetoric , certainly here the writer thought they were being clever by pointing out it wasnt first class but not informing me what it actually was and by doing that there is an element of deceit .I also find it strange why its taken so long to reply to my FOI when actually its told me nothing .

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/f...

Yours faithfully,

john gittos
