Since we introduced our Globility Board, a group of 20 frequent travelers selected to represent a cross section of our readership, last April we’ve called on them to offer advice and insights for articles ranging from travel insurance to maximizing the benefits of affinity credit cards.
IHG® Business Edge: Working Together with SMEs for a smarter way to manage travel
On the Ground: I arrived at Abu Dhabi International Airport from Dubai in no time; I used the same driver for most of my trip, and we had become fast friends. At the airport, I was immediately met by a friendly ground agent and was whisked to the first-class check-in, as the business-class counter was busy. From here, I went through security and was soon shopping at the duty-free shops. Once I made all my purchases, I went into the business-class lounge and found a single seat where I could leave my roller bag next to me. The lounge was busy, as flights depart in every direction of the world at this hour. Etihad could use a significantly larger lounge based on the traffic I encountered. The lounge cuisine was tasty, and I made sure I had a little bite pre-flight.
