Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe ICANN staff and
Directors are funded for business class travel on international trips
while NomCom reps are funded for coach travel.  If so, the last two
sentences of the first paragraph do not work.

Note that I am not advocating for or against sending this letter, only
making sure that we are accurate in our facts.

> council members receive the same consideration for their 
> travel expenses as Nomcom Appointees  to the council receive. 
>  This support should be at the same level as is received by 
> Members of the ICANN Board.
> The urgency of the situation, though the request has been a 
> standing request for a while now,  is because  several

> attend the meeting in New Delhi without such support.
> Please get back to me as soon as possible regarding this request.
> Thank you,
> Avri Doria
> Chair, GNSO Council
