I was reading an article on the CNN website dated 15 September 2008, about the 3 biggest mistakes business travelers make. It was so nice to see that finally people are realizing something, which I’ve been noticing for some time now.
This article is talking about the ‘corporate travel managers’: which most big well known companies work with. Business travelers should not believe them. I used to be a corporate travel manager for Shell in The Hague and I can totally agree with him. There are rules to be followed in the travel world, for companies to stay profitable.
This article also informs us about business travelers who like to complain, the so-called frequent criers and that you shouldn’t believe in the frequent fly programs most airlines have.Of course it is up to you whether to believe them or not!
The biggest mistake airports DON’T DO is hot-desking for these frequent criers. We are already familiar with the lounges, the break out areas and the wireless – Internet access along with an endless list of little perks that aren’t really used by the majority of the travelers anyway.
But what about an idea that isn’t only green but also a great benefit for the actual individual? An ergonomically, environmental friendly fitted out business centre for these very tired and busy businessman and women??
Dubai is so modern and everything is so well thought out that I believe the new Dubai airport should provide this facility and become the first in the world to introduce this fantastic concept.Dubai has been the leader in many great ideas so I hope that this one will also follow in the near future!!
