The Lobby Bar – A Weekly Summary of Frequent Business Traveler News and Views

Sweet Dreams. Does the Dreamliner live up to its name? Jonathan Spira explores every nook and cranny on ANA’s first 787 to Tokyo and tells us if his dreams really are better as a result.

But what are you supposed to do with the peach pits? It is a felony to throw objects off your balcony in Atlanta. Dan Collins didn’t test this, but enjoyed the views of Peachtree at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.

Where are the wings? The latest Lexus LS has lots of gadgets, rear seats that recline and massage you, and is almost IFR-approved.

The suit heard around the world. The Samsung Galaxy S III is lining the pockets of legal teams around the world, and Cody Burke tells you if it should line yours as well.

Hope this is better than the ticketing system. American Airlines does away with the age-old in-flight choice of feather or leather, and Jesse Sokolow finds out that reservations are mandatory as well.

Seeing red.  Austiran Airlines unveiled a new business-class cabin that wasn’t as red as the flight attendant uniforms.
