ExpertFlyer Taps Into Seasoned Road Warriors, Business Travel Pub to Uncover Tips and Best Practices for Flying Better

Comfort Class on Delta gets you free movies and drinks and plenty of legroom so aside from meals, it’s a really economical way to enjoy most of the benefits of First Class

When it comes to the frequent business traveler clique, two things are for certain: Road warriors love to compete for bragging rights as the best at securing premium amenities for the least cost; and lauding their unshakable “method” for securing those great perks and maximizing their time on the road. While ExpertFlyer elected to forego the bragging rights debate, they sat down with a few seasoned road warriors and a leading business travel magazine to uncover some of their best tips for staying happy, even at 40,000 feet. While many may think the tips and advice can only be accessed and used by ultra-elite-status business travelers, the fact is that most travelers will find these tips and insights beneficial, and personally useful.

Ross Atkinson, Chief Marketing and Product Officer at Business Traveler magazine, is a big fan of the stopover. “There are about a dozen airlines that now do it covering Asia, parts of Europe, and the Middle East,” he said during a recent One-on-One video interview with ExpertFlyer.com. “So, if you’re traveling the globe, what a great way to actually add a couple of days on your trip and see a part of the world you might not have seen before.”

Gregg Ellman is co-owner of Ellman Photography and travels about 35-40 times a year on behalf of some of his clients including NASCAR and Canon USA. As a Platinum Pro member of American’s Advantage program with over two million miles on the books, Ellman has developed his share of tips, which most travelers can take advantage of. Ellman says his American Airlines Citi Executive card is worth every penny. “Along with the monthly miles, you get 10,000 yearly qualifying miles and your yearly membership to the Admirals Club is included with the card’s annual fee. Another strategy Ellman employs to make life easier in the sky is to book the earliest flight possible, which avoids young kids and makes boarding much quicker. “Since I travel with a lot of camera gear, hassle-free boarding is a big deal.”
