For people who don’t do a lot of travelling for work, the idea of business travel is totally different to the reality of it. Waking up at the crack of dawn to catch the red eye so that you can make it to a breakfast meeting on the other side of the country or long flights to far-flung destinations that, unlike the imagined world of business travel, involve travelling between your hotel and important meetings, not sightseeing and taking in the local culture.
Travelling for business is a business in itself. Whether you are on a long flight or are just flying between Johannesburg and Cape Town, for many seasoned business flyers the idea of air travel is more daunting than the huge presentation or shareholders meeting that lies ahead at the other end. And not because of a fear of flying. No, for many well travelled business men and women it is the OTHER passengers that cause sweaty palms, dry mouth and anxiety levels to shoot through the roof.
