Your Company's Policies - Business vs. Economy Class Travel

Postby Makan24-7 » Thu, 13 Sep 2007 9:34 pm

This might not belong in the career thread but it is somewhat related to work, so here goes:

This one is for all the people on the forum; I was wondering what your company's policies are on business class vs. economy class travel for non-relocation related business travel. If you can share those policies that would be great, also what industry your company operates in would be helpful.

Mine's like this - all business travel with single leg flights exceeding 8 hours are ELIGIBLE for business class seats upon approval of your organization's vice-president. The only exception is for travel between North America and Europe where only economy class travel is permitted.

I work for a Fortune 100 firm that's in aerospace, defense, industrial automation, building and environmental controls, transportation systems and specialty materials/chemicals.

Ubder 4 hours, economy. Over 4 hours, business. For company travel. For clients, their travel policy is in effect. Got to like one client. Uses their US travel policy guidelines in Asia. All domestic travel must be economy. All international travel can be business. Good rule to apply to Singapore.
