I am sure this is a mistake (either from the reporting, or from the airline investigation):

One employee visited 12,857 internet sites in just over 60 hours, while another visited 8303 sites in nearly 44 hours.


Er, hello? almost 13,000 "internet sites" in 60 hours?

Assuming these guys were all using the same computer (the one Air NZ didn't give them any training to use) that would mean 21,160 sites in 104 hours, thats 1 site every 17.6 seconds. Some of us can spend all day on one site, geekzone anyone? Perhaps they meant web pages and the guys were just looking at the pictures. ;-)

Of course the defense could come back with a "My clients deny looking at websites. In fact, at such rate, it could be impossible for a human being to look through that many websites. It is possible that Air New Zealand's desktop security standards are not high enough, and a trojan or virus infected those PCs, causing unwanted bandwidth waste."

Air New Zealand wouldn't have much say on this... One's words against the company's.

And giving your logon detals to 23 apprentices? Air NZ act like this is a bad thing.
