Airlines lay on the luxury to entice execs15 September 2006
Business travellers remain king with the airlines.Throughout the industry, carriers continue to invest millions of dollars in cabin services and airport lounges that offer everything from high-end food and beverages, wireless workstations, luxury spa facilities, phone-free zones, fitness/gym rooms and valet services.
Recently, both American Airlines and Chile’s LAN Airlines announced enhancements to their long-haul business-class service. WestJet Airlines has made a move to appeal to business travellers by offering for-fee guest lounges in airports across Canada. The competition is fierce among airlines trying to woo those high-end passengers.
