CEO 'forgets' to tell his wife he is working for free

When CEOs forget to tell their wives stuff, it's usually something important, such as a mistress. British Airways Plc (BAIRY) CEO Willie Walsh, though, has gone beyond the norm for the rarefied world of CEOs.

According to Reuters, Walsh did not tell his wife that he agreed to work in July for free, as a show of solidarity with his cash-strapped airline. "'She read about it in the papers,' a grinning Walsh told Reuters at a lunch for airline executives gathering in the Malaysian capital," the news service reported.
