Lobby Bar – June 28: Viennese puns, Tongue-twisting Nissans, and a Presidential Welcome
The Lobby Bar – A Weekly Summary of Frequent Business Traveler News and Views
Room for two? Jonathan Spira test-sleeps Delta Air Lines’ Westin Heavenly In Flight bedding. Passengers from coach eyed the comfortable setup longingly, but were turned away by a flight attendant before requesting to share.
Two Presidents? Suite. Jesse Sokolow stays at the Saint Paul Hotel in St. Paul, Minnesota. The first two people to sign the guest list were William Howard Taft and Theodore Roosevelt, old friends of our time traveling reporter.
Airborne living rooms. Ramsey Qubein flies Business Class on Turkish Airlines’ Flight 33 from Istanbul, to Houston. With wide screen HDTVs, endless channels of video content, outlets for personal devices, and complimentary Wi-Fi, it was like enjoying an evening in his own living room… with dozens of strangers.
Taking notes. To San Diego we went to test drive the 2014 Nissan Versa Note SV. Mental note: the Note was notably noteworthy.
Kingly museums. Delta Air Lines announced that it will shut the doors of its Delta Heritage Museum in Atlanta, and reopen it as the Delta Flight Museum in a year. The Delta Museum has closed. Long live the Delta Museum.
