Someone can explain me what's the problem with Google Cofunders & their plane? Because it's too complex for me. Sorry

I think it's about Larry and Sergey is having a problem with the plane design.
>for Google employees only?<
Google co-founders only.

but they did say its for 50 people..
there are 50 co-founders?

(and i know it can contain up to 50 poeople.. and it doesnt mean theyll have to use this amount..but, this is a big plane..theyll probably use it for the co-founders, but just just for them..)

The John Batchelor show, ABC radio just discussed this story tonight. I think they are trying to make a story where there really isn't one, just because they're celebrities!

Of course it looks they're trying to one-up Air Force One (if we ignore the proposed hammocks)!

Could you imagine Google Airlines?

<<Could you imagine Google Airlines?>>
Google Airlines.. wow!! i like the sound of that..! it will be sooo cool to fly with Google.
your laptop will probably always be online with a Wi-Fi connection. and youll buy food (on the plane of course) using Google Checkout..

it can be very cool!!

<<The two co-founders of internet search engine Google are embroiled in a legal dispute over the design of the interior for an ongoing luxury conversion of a Boeing 767.>>

so Google does have problems with the plane?

I don't think there are problems with the plane itself. I think it was disagreement of the interior layout and design, and apparently controversy over whose plans were used in the end.

For that matter, Google does not own the plane. A separate company set up by founders does.

" the plane appears to be in violation of the FAA act..at least thats what I understand"

I haven't seen anything along those lines. Did I miss something?
