Takeoff 
  • Avoid the potholes of networking on the road
    Striking up a conversation with a seatmate can prove productive -- unless you miss the obvious warning signs of information overload and talk the ear off your captive audience. Learn what to look for and you'll know when that friendly smile masks the underlying anxiety oozing from your next-seat neighbor. "While networking on the road can be a useful tool, it does involve some unique pitfalls," writes Camilla Cornell.

  • Control your travel costs by maximizing tax deductions
    Business travel can be taxing on your body and your company's bottom line. But if you know the ins and outs of allowable deductions, you can greatly curb the cost. "Business expenses are usually tax-deductible in the hands of a company as long as they are incurred to earn income for the business and are reasonable in the circumstances," Dan MacDonald writes.

  • Airports go high-tech with hub parking
    Airlines are looking to improve customer service and operational efficiency and generate revenue with innovative parking solutions. The myLJLA Mobile Passenger App at Liverpool John Lennon Airport in the U.K. lets travelers pay for parking via the application, while kiosks at Incheon International Airport in South Korea enable drivers to find vacant spaces to park and locate their cars on the way out.

  • Sleepy travelers at Chicago's O'Hare can stretch out in Minute Suites
    Minute Suites at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport will offer "extended-stay suites" with daybeds that can be used for naps between flights. The suites can be rented for $30 an hour or $120 per night. "When you have a five-hour layover between flights, the first thing you think of is sleep, getting some food or souvenirs and getting some work done," said Ronnie Gross, location supervisor for the suites in Philadelphia.
