Phillip Reynolds, CEO, Caribbean Home Entertainment Ltd and CariHome Supermarket
How many trips do you take a year?
Five or six; usually some to the US and around the Caribbean, and two or three long-haul too.
What is your packing routine?
Last-minute, but very methodical, so I am always well prepared.
What are your must-have carry-ons?
My laptop, though I try to avoid having to work during a flight, and noise-cancelling headphones.
What was your most eventful business trip?
I try to make all my trips eventful, but I do remember once, many years ago, the plane being followed down the runway by a fire engine as we landed.
Do you have an exercise routine?
Who was your most memorable seatmate?
Lord Anthony Gifford, a very entertaining man with a great sense of humour.
Do you listen to airline radios?
What is your ideal business destination?
London - for family and friends, or Cape Town (South Africa) for good food and weather.
What is your favourite airport?
Heathrow - Terminal 5
What's the worst thing about all this travel?
The time wasted in airports.
And the best thing?
A few hours away from my cellphone!
Do you practise any jet-lag-busting activities?
I have been known to be sound asleep before the plane leaves the runway, and not surface until it lands, so I am generally ready to go, whatever the time difference.
