He must have paid a lot of dosh for a lot of 'dash" to clear these both ways. Also it must have taken a lot of time!

I beg to differ...

I'm sure the weight of the lambo meant extra fuel was burnt on that flight...

But more importantly, if people keep doing this and other wasteful trips, there will be more scheduled flights.

Does that mean we can find even more extravagant ways to fill those extra flights?

Default What happens to the car on return!

Poor Sheikh! He might have his Lamborgini riding like a bullock cart upon its return.

For the quality of service he is looking for, unfortunately his car is lashed in the wrong manner. The wheels are lashed incorrect. Low profile rim-tyre combinations are to be lashed around the tyre and not through the rim.

For the long travel of 6500 miles X2, I guess...The effect will be visible on the rims.
