    Depending on your generational bias, you probably expected the future of business travel to look like The Jetsons or Futurama, animated television shows that specialized in zippy modes of transportation. If you're more high-minded than TV treacle, you hoped that we'd be passing through ethereal travel spaces designed by visionaries like Eero Saarinen.

    Yeah, well, get over it. Business travel was never going to be like that. You realize it every time you draw a middle seat in coach on a sold-out flight or suffer through the security kabuki at an airport checkpoint. Life on the road is no ride in George Jetson's aerocar and, in case you hadn't noticed, Saarinen's masterful TWA Flight Center is closed and TWA itself is long gone. We even fly more slowly since Concorde was retired a decade ago.

    Yet even if the reference is from a 64-year-old musical, I resolutely remain a cockeyed optimist when it comes to business travel. I do think things will get better on the road. That's partially because the cynic in me thinks things couldn't really get worse. Mostly, though, it's because I think we can already see the improvement in many key areas of our daily business-travel lives.

    Here are four specific scenarios where the future of business travel will be better, faster, happier and less burdensome.
