Analyzing the SEC-10 "Q" document well, it not only turns out that 260 employees were recently laid off by Apple, but that its CEO received $ 84,000 in the form of reimbursements during the quarter.

The sum was due, explains Apple, for the use of the private jet that Apple itself provided him two years ago as an emolument for carrying out the duties of CEO.

Cupertino, according to the report, used the Gulfstream V 586 usually parked near Steve Jobs' residence, at Stockton airport, to transport managers and employees to various events in the USA and around the world.

Prior to this quarter, Apple reported charges of $ 1.16 million from the use of the executive aircraft destined for its boss from May 2001 to that time.

Cupertino justifies the use of Jobs' plane instead of traditional scheduled flights, claiming that this system saves travel costs.
