Before you jet off for the weekend, be sure to catch up on this week’s news.  Here are five important features from the past week that you don’t want to miss.

1.) Jonathan Spira visits the Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski in Munich, a grand hotel that brings back fond memories from his childhood.  Have you ever encountered a tea sommelier before?  Take afternoon tea in the Jahreszeiten Lobby, followed by a spa treatment and Wiener Schnitzel for dinner in the Restaurant Vue Maximilian.

2.) Jesse Sokolow reviews the Dyson AM06 Desk Fan, a welcome addition to any room this summer.  The ultra-quiet high-tech fan is bladeless, easy to set up, and environmentally friendly.

3.) If you’re ever in China, be sure to drop by the city of Chengdu, an oasis of tradition and modernism in the Sichuan province.  Karin Sun (hello!) reports on the city’s most memorable features, from its giant panda sanctuaries to its charming historical teahouses, in our guide to what’s doing in Chengdu.

4.) Not to be outdone by its competitors, Delta is aggressively expanding its international service from Seattle.  The airline has recently launched new non-stop routes from Seattle to Hong Kong and Seoul, and has also invested $15 million in new facilities and amenities at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

5.) Our readers are invited to attend the 2014 Frequent Business Traveler GlobeRunner Awards, which will take place at 3:00 p.m. on July 22 in Midtown Manhattan. Since invitations to the event are limited, be sure to enter our Attend the 2014 GlobeRunner Awards contest and tell us why you’re a Master Frequent Business Traveler.
