Prince Charles cutting travel costs

LONDON -- Britain's Prince Charles, criticized for huge travel bills in recent years, plans to fly British Airways to the Caribbean next month business class.

Furthermore, the prince and wife, Camilla, will sail to official engagements on five islands to cut the tour's travel costs, The Sun reported Thursday.

In 2005, Charles was criticized for running up a tab of more than $475,000 (380,000 pounds) touring Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. Regularly scheduled airline flights would have cut the cost to British taxpayers in half, the London newspaper said.
