Believe it or not, Halloween has come and gone. Once again, it’s time to catch up on important Frequent Business Traveler news and features from this past week, without any tricks or treats. Here are five stories that could be of interest to you.

1.) Robert Waldner (ciao!) reminds us that Daylight Saving Time ends this Sunday. Don’t forget to turn your clocks back one hour, North Americans.

2.) Paul Riegler reviews Delta’s first-class service flying from New York to Salt Lake City. Riegler speeds through Pre-Check, finds the seat a bit tight, and arrives 15 minutes early after a pleasant flight.

3.) Karin Sun travels to Krakow, Poland to get a glimpse of its beautiful medieval architecture and rich modern history. Take a stroll through the Old Town neighborhood and sample local cuisine that is sure to please your appetite.

4.) Gas Prices have fallen to a four-year low across the nation. In the past week, the average price of gas is down $0.18 and is 40 cents lower than it was eight weeks ago.

5.) The New Jersey Turnpike has opened additional lanes, which span 35 miles between exits 6a and 9 and cost $2.5 billion. At one point, the project was the largest roadway project in the Western Hemisphere.

If you didn’t find time to catch up on all of the new this past week, there is no need to fret. You might be interested to find out that InterContinental Hotels opened the world’s tallest Holiday Inn hotel, Japan Airlines acquired a 51.2% stake in Hokkaido air system, and American Airlines announced its AAdvantage frequent flyer program changes.
