- Two Private Flights Taken by Former CMO Leslie Berland
- Private Jet Services Group
A private jet provider filed a lawsuit against Elon Musk‘s Twitter for not compensating two flights taken by former CMO Leslie Berland, as Elon Musk was about to close an impressive $44 billion acquisition of the popular social media platform.
Private Jet Services Group has asserted that they are owed $197,725 for the October 26 flight from Teterboro, New Jersey to San Francisco and back on the same day by Berland, coincidentally the day Elon Musk finalized his purchase of Twitter. Shortly after in early November, nearly half of the personnel were discharged at this corporation with Berland among them.
Despite Twitter’s lawyers arguing that the company was not responsible for any payments, PJSG has continued to seek out their rightful compensation. Sources have reported that Elon Musk himself is not directly tied to this lawsuit, as it appears it is strictly between PJSG and Twitter.
The lawsuit is still ongoing, however, the future of this situation remains to be seen. The time will tell if Twitter will indeed have to pay for the private jet charters or if it can prove that they are not responsible for it.
