Business travel might seem fun and glamorous on the surface, but road warriors know that the behind-the-scenes logistics involved in booking a business trip are just the opposite. Scheduling flights and hotels, collecting receipts, and trying to work on a flight when your neighbor is hogging the armrest are just a few of the hassles that get in the way of enjoying a business trip, not to mention the hundreds of emails that pile up while you’re out of the office.
