Celebrity status? For his safety, Apple's board also implemented a policy requiring Cook to "use private aircraft for all business and personal travel".

Over the path of 2017, expenses on personal air travel of Cook amounted to nearly $93,109 and Apple spent an extra $24,216 in the personal security costs that was provided for Cook.

Cook's pay raise this year came mostly from cash bonuses; $9.3 million were added to Cook's $3 million annual salary. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Disney CEO Bob Iger both rely on private planes for all their personal travel, according to the most recent company filings for each. In 2017, Cook received a previously disclosed $89 million stock payout as part of a welcome package dating back to 2011.

In its most recent quarterly earnings, Apple said iPhone sales rose 2 percent, its China business grew 12 percent, and its services sector - including Apple Pay, Music, App Store and iCloud - soared 34 percent higher than the same period a year earlier.
