Business Traveler (USA) - - SPECIAL REPORT -

As the com­pe­ti­tion for pre­mium trav­el­ers grows more in­tense, air­lines and air­ports are con­cen­trat­ing more re­sources at the be­gin­ning of the trip. The re­sult is a host of new lounge ex­pe­ri­ences crop­ping up in air­ports around the world. With the re­lent­less growth of air­line traf­fic, fre­quent fliers are seek­ing more than just seren­ity and a snack in those mo­ments prior to board­ing. In ad­di­tion to peace and quiet, what these trav­el­ers ex­pect is a top-end din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, tech­nol­ogy that works and a lit­tle some­thing spe­cial in the way of cus­tomer ser­vice.

Here’s a look at some of the lat­est lounge launches and prod­uct in­no­va­tions around the world. THE AMER­I­CAS as well as Star Al­liance pre­mium pas­sen­gers de­part­ing on in­ter­na­tional flights. How­ever, United Club mem­bers and Star Al­liance Gold mem­bers do not have ac­cess un­less they are tick­eted in busi­ness class.
