November is here and another week comes to an end. Once again, it’s time to catch up on Frequent Business Traveler news and features that you may have missed this week. Here are five stories that we think you’ll want to read.

1.) A new FBT poll is surveying frequent flyers about Ebola concerns and if they are affecting travel plans. The poll seeks to address what travelers know about Ebola and any precaution they are taking to avoid contamination.

2.) Jonathan Spira becomes the very first guest to check into the new Four Seasons Moscow. Situated next to Red Square, the property is a modern day replica of the legendary Hotel Moskva.

3.) Paul Riegler reviews Wi-Fi Calling on T-Mobile for the Apple iPhone. The Wi-Fi Calling feature allows users to place and receive calls when no cellular service is present and eliminates roaming charges for users of the service when calling U.S. numbers from abroad.

4.) Jesse Sokolow covers great moments in travel history. Find out more about records that have been broken, when the first flight took place, and when the first airport opened.

5.) Jonathan Spira visits the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival and Concours d’Elegance. Check out some of the automotive works of art that were on display throughout the festival.

It was a busy week for travel-related news, so here are a few more stories to read. You might be interested to learn that American Express opened a Centurion Lounge in San Francisco, American Airlines expanded operations at LAX, and the airline industry is predicting a modest increase in flying during the Thanksgiving holiday period.
