Tesco buy private jet, which adds to their woes
They've just taken delivery of a brand new Gulfstream G550 plane, which timing-wise has not gone down terribly well with investor.
New chief executive Dave Lewis had already ordered that the chain's fleet of private jets be destroyed by fire* (*sold off), in a bid to sort out the supermarket's current debacle of overstating its profits by £250 million.
However its claimed that the plane was paid for 20 months ago, and turned up coincidentally during the worst week imaginable for Tesco.
Tesco, whose market share price has plummeted by nearly 50% this year, already had a fleet of four private jets.
