  • Survey: Most business travel capped by corporate policies
    The latest Travel Policy Trends survey from the Global Business Travel Association Foundation and Egencia states that 79% of business travelers have corporate policies that keep them from flying in business-class seats. In North America, 81% of policies limited business-class air travel, up from 69% a year ago. Only 45% of companies had a similar policy on hotels, but that figure was also up from 2011.
