The weekend is here, which means that it’s a great time to catch up on key Frequent Business Traveler news and features from this past week. Here are five stories that should command your attention.

1.) Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren lets us know when it’s the best time to purchase airfare tickets. Many factors come into play here, including how far in advance you purchase your ticket.

2.) Jesse Sokolow reviews the Rittenhouse hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The hotel overlooks one of Philadelphia’s most beautiful public parks and offers spacious rooms, spa treatments, and a wonderful restaurant.

3.) Robert Waldner (Guten Tag!) offers packing tips and strategies for traveling during the upcoming holiday period. Don’t forget to choose the right bag, use a checklist, and check the weather before traveling to your destination.

4.) Paul Riegler breaks down a Frequent Business Traveler poll that surveyed frequent flyers to find out whether the Ebola outbreak had caused them to change their travel plans or routines. Two thirds of those polled indicated that they viewed Ebola as a “threat” of some kind. Thirty-two percent of those surveyed said that their employer had taken one or more steps in reaction to the Ebola outbreak.

5.) Jesse Sokolow reports that fuel prices in the United States are the lowest they have been in four years. The nationwide average price for a gallon of gasoline was $2.894.

If you didn’t catch everything that has been going on this week, here are a few more stories to take a closer look at. You might be interested to find out that New York City is getting free public Wi-Fi, lake-effect snow resulted in thousands of flight delays and cancelations, and that the TSA chief wants his successor to find ways of easing restrictions on bringing liquids onto flights.
