My understanding is that its legal as long as the flying is
incidental to the work. That is, if you have to go somewhere and you
just happen to go by air, as opposed to being paid to fly somewhere.
I dont think you need a commercial ticket.
Cameron> Next question, would it be legal if I had a fellow work

Cameron> the business trip) and they were to reimburse me for that
My understanding is that if it is a trip that _you_ are taking, its
OK to take other people along. On the other hand, if its a trip
that someone else is taking, you cant offer to give that person a
ride and accept reimbursement.
I should point out that my understanding might be wrong. If youre
serious about wanting to know for sure, you should probably call up your
local FAA office and ask. If youre nervous about calling them, then
youve just answered your own question.
