Don,

I think the 30 days advance notice are mostly OK for US travel, but I would
like us to have longer lead time for foreign trips, both because the
approval process is typically longer, and also because you may need too buy
tickets earlier to the cheapest prices. My trip went up considerably in
price between early January and this week, when the company actually bought
the ticket. This was mostly due to internal company process slowness, but
the trip would probably cost even more if I hadn't had the information until
late February...
