"But the prince was criticized for reserving the entire 62-seat first class section of a jumbo jet for his 20-person entourage on that trip to the U.S. — thereby wasting fuel and causing needless carbon dioxide emissions.

Of course. It's okay to be a hypocrite as long as you're on a Mission For The Greater Good. Al Gore drove around his entire 8 years as Vice-President in large limousines.

Nancy Pelosi apparently requires a much larger aircraft for her entourage, so why not the Prince of Wales?
