Don't recall ever hearing about GE execs coming out to check the Uni operations, or vice versa. i am sure it happens, but not a regular enough occurrence to justify a commercial flight. Honestly, the studio heads are not generally flying commercial. The commercial contracts seem to me to be aimed more at capturing the significant amount of production business. Producers, talent and directors are generally guaranteed first or business in their contracts. High level production people below them are generally guaranteed biz. Despite productions fleeing to Canada, Seattle and other locations, the bug US cities are still the most popular. Plus, premiers, meetings, etc...
