Let me get this straight...

BC assumed this would be a great idea and go senior?

Therefore, possible thought process of 'let's hook up the senior guys who want/can afford a one month trip in Paris. Give them a hotel, per diem, and fly that special someone over on the company's dime'.

If it turns out to actually be a horrible deal then the senior guys would be protected by invol junior manning.

Got it. Thanks.

And no, there are no black helos over the house...just questioning motivation.
