Premier Traveler Magazine Continues Its Comprehensive Look Into Premium-Class Amenities Offered by Airlines the World Over - This Time, With an Intense Focus on Business Class

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 12, 2013) -  On the heels of winning two first-place awards from the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) this spring - conferred upon Premier Traveler magazine (PT) and Features Editor Janet Forman - the latest edition of PT offers up the second half of its ambitious investigation into the premium amenities offered by airlines around the world. The previous edition presented a comprehensive look at first class; this time around, it's business class in the spotlight.

While PT's detailed examination of the business-class cabin amenities serves as the star of one half of the magazine, the other half highlights a star in her own right: An in-depth interview with globe-trotting actress Elisabeth Röhm, who graces the cover, proves that business travelers, too, can be glamorous. All of the regular features that readers have come to appreciate are present, as well - from News Flash to the Hotel and Airline Updates and from Cheers and Travel Bites to Tech Talk and Joel's Corner. Readers can discover new and fascinating facets of Lisbon, Patagonia and Zürich and then learn about the advantages of holding their upcoming meetings Dubai-style. And an up-close look at the way Travelpro manufactures its ever-popular luggage reveals the innovative reasons behind the company's enduring place at the top of its industry.

Reader responses to PT's intense scrutiny of first-class airline amenities were decisively on the plus side. Pleased with the reactions to the concept, survey spearhead Editor-in-Chief Ally Miola said, "We were thrilled to receive all the positive feedback from our readers about our research on first class, with many respondents expressing how much they were looking forward to our next issue, featuring the Business-Class Survey. Knowing that we're giving the readers what they want - and that we're often surpassing their expectations - makes it all worthwhile."

Presented in highly detailed tables divided by global geographic areas, the Business-Class Survey spells out the services and amenities that passengers can expect from every airline - such as seat specifications and the availability of flat-bed seats; electronic conveniences, such as USB ports, monitor size, type of headphones and available Wi-Fi; and the entertainment options on offer, such as satellite TV, movies, games and on-demand choices.

"We couldn't be happier about the response," said PT Director Adam Rodriguez. "Our readership is made up of savvy travelers who know what they want and need and are delighted to find handy reference tools like our detailed study of premium-class amenities within the pages of our publication."

"The airlines are always changing things," responded one pleased reader. "It's almost impossible to keep up. I love it that I can receive this up-to-date information with my subscription. So much detail, and all in one place, for comparison. It saves me a lot of time - and time is money!"

In addition to the survey, PT also takes a look at the many ways in which a number of airline executives are addressing the needs of premium-class travelers: Geert Boven of Etihad Airways, David Cush of Virgin America, Bernard Gustin of Brussels Airlines, Juergen Siebenrock of Lufthansa, Tom O'Toole of United Airlines and Young-Doo Yoon of Asiana Airlines each give a personal account of his airline's focus on the premium-class passenger. And Insider Reviews provide intimate reports of travelers and their experiences in flying business class on Air Canada, ANA, Brussels Airlines, Etihad Airways and Turkish Airlines.

"By listening and responding to our readers, we keep our fingers on the pulse of the needs of business travelers," said Rodriguez. "So far, they tell us we're giving them what they want. And that's exactly what we set out to do."
