ABSTRACT
The article presents the opinion expressed by Jamie Hindhaugh, head of sourcing at British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC), on the business travel industry. He states that the travel management companies (TMCs) should be more transparent with their clients. He says that the global financial crisis has forced most companies to change their travel policy, ask their employees to stop flying in first class carriers, and avoid staying in luxury hotels.
