The boss of an American telecoms company has secured a special deal allowing his step-daughter to commute more than 800 miles to school on a corporate jet.
Qwest Communications, a firm founded by the Millennium Dome tycoon Philip Anschutz, has added a clause to the employment contract of its chief executive, Edward Mueller, permitting his wife and stepdaughter to use its aircraft to hop across the Rocky Mountains between Colorado and California.
Mr Mueller, who was appointed last month, is moving from his west coast home to Qwest´s base in Denver. The clause allows his stepdaughter to avoid changing schools. It is on top of a basic salary of $ 1.2m (GBP 593,000), a possible $ 2.4m bonus and stock awards of up to $ 15m.
