I have no idea but i don't think it is. It'a a CNN link.
I dont want to sound sarcastic but I think MM has only flying issues when it suits her.

If she was working a lot in Norway, I wouldnt mind. But MM basically jets out either to these high profile events (or when she is "finding herself" or going on holiday) that have become more and more celebrity-ish (its a good cause AND with to-be-seen guarantee), walking around with her expensive bag and shoes, doing her speech (yes, this is what all of them do), but I dont see her putting in any hard work elsewhere.

If there is one CP who I find really disappointing its MM.
