Sammie goes Stateside with United Airlines
When Sammie (Senior Business Travel Consultant for Good Travel Management) had the opportunity to join onto the UNIGLOBE / United Airlines educational FAM trip to Washington she immediately said yes! .Sammie regularly books flights for her travellers for this route, so the trip would provide an increased amount of knowledge of the journey from start to finish.
The journey started with access to the United Lounge in Terminal 2 -London Heathrow, a luxurious Free WiFi zone with space for relaxation for on the go corporate travellers, featuring a stylish array of leather seating areas, spa/shower facilities,delicious food and drink offerings as well as an impressive wine display (pictured)
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time within the United Airlines lounge. Its definitely the perfect add on to any business travellers flight as it not only combines class and style, but relaxation too. I would definitely recommend to my travellers to visit the lounge when they can!”
Sammie then took her seat in Business Class on the flight and the hospitality from United didn’t stop there…
“The on board crew were very attentive throughout the flight, I was given a menu featuring a wide range of delicious meals teamed with a selection of complimentary cocktails to enjoy on board. I relaxed on a fully flat bed with blankets and pillows and could enjoy the flight thoroughly and comfortably. Anything else i needed to make my flight comfortable was available and the crew couldn’t have done enough for me”
Once arrived, Sammie experienced visits to multiple landmarks and hot-spots within Washington, including a trip to the Arlington Cemetery in which President JFK is buried. A changing of the guard display followed, with a visit to the Washington Monument and of course a visit to The White House.
So what did Sammie think of her recent trip to Washington DC?
“I am extremely lucky to be given the opportunity to be involved on this trip with fellow consultants from a different range of agencies. I had a fantastic time and can definitely use my knowledge of the journey to the Terminal down in Heathrow, lounge experience, the flight with United Airlines and also my experience of the landmarks visited within Washington, to give travellers wishing to take the same route hands on experience.”
