Thorsten, are there any tax-limitations we need to consider, is this possible at all (independent from whether we want this or not)?
The limitations are that we're not supposed to pay 'benefits' to members. Reasonable travel costs incurred by members on a trip on behalf of TDF are of course reimbursable upon board approval. The policy though states that "TDF will reimburse or pay the cost... ...of the lowest coach class fare" - which I read that TDF does not insist on you actually booking coach. Norbert's remark is of course valid - so it's best to agree on a sum beforehand, instead of haggling over that after the fact.
