TechCrunch's Michael Arrington tried and failed to score a ride from Davos back to California on the Google plane. No surprise, since the plane — owned by Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Eric Schmidt, not the company they run — only seats 25 people.

I've heard that Tim O'Reilly, Mitch Kapor, Reid Hoffman and Mark Zuckerberg will be on that flight. Basically, every Davos attendee from the Bay Area except me managed to hitch a ride back with Google.

Mike, they did you a favor: Could you ever claim to cover Google as an independent journalist if its founders put you on that flight? Have some dignity. Instead of whining about having to ride Swiss back, as you did, Jason Calacanis would have chartered his own jet. (Photo by Brian Solis)
