This article presents information on new services from airlines and hotels in the U.S. New services from airlines and hotels give new meaning to learning on the fly. Somehow, tuning in to the ROI Report on American Airlines' radio channel nine does not quite cut it as in-flight entertainment. Both the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, Massachusetts and the Wyndham Anatole in Dallas, Texas have recently begun tours of their resident art collections. For instance, the InterContinental Buckhead in Atlanta offers cognac seminars for guests. And for yoga fans tired of the mat-and-video loaner trend that's been sweeping the chains, Hotel Vitale, in San Francisco, California's financial district, offers free daily yoga classes in its penthouse-level studio.
