travel pains

image from here

since the holidays are drawing may be travel time for a bunch of you..i ran across this interesting article in Travel + Leisure Magazine that polled their readers for some travel related questions..and all the questions are BUSINESS class related..
here is how they answered for a few interesting topics:

top domestic routes: based on overall score, and cabin comfort
virgin airlines--best in regular class cabin as well, in my opinion
midwest airlines

virgin america
qatar airways

singapore (in the 90% across all categories)
cathay pacific
air new zealand

top domestic airports: ratings based on easy of connections, baggage, food ect
portland oregon
washington Dc reagan
san diego

international top airports:
hong kong

96% of readers say the #1 important factor for choosing an airline is comfort and legroom
96% also said having a direct flight was most important

80% of the readers said they would rather walk thru a full body scan then be patted down in security..couldn't agree more

what do you rely on to help you relax or sleep on long flights:
30% said alcohol
29% said sleep aids (i.e drugs)
7% said alcohol and sleep aids

i think i am going to invest in some of these noise canceller headphones..i was more than annoyed listening to a mother and daughter discuss painful topics my last trip..cannot deal is a review of many on the market here

ohh one more tip..for all you "can't sleep without a sound machine" that would be me..there is an App for that! its called you can listen to white noice, or streams or waves crashing as your phone charges through the night..sleep tight!

if you have any tips or recommendations..please we can all be happier travelers..
(i need a new suitcase that can fit in overhead and has those cool wheels?)
