Hong Kong Airlines Business Class Lounge Review

Hong Kong Airlines Business Class Lounge Review

Hong Kong Airlines runs two lounges one smallish at Gate 23 (Club Bauhinia) and a rather big lounge at the satellite terminal at Hong Kong Airport.

My review of Hong Kong Airlines Business Class A350 San Francisco/ Los Angeles to Hong Kong and A330 to Taipei

My review of Hong Kong Airlines Business Class A350 San Francisco/ Los Angeles to Hong Kong and A330 to Taipei

Hong Kong Airlines has been a thorn in Cathay Pacific’s lucrative ‘near monopoly’ of Hong Kong to Asia and Hong Kong to US flights. The corporate owner HNA (which also owns Hainan Airlines and HK Express among many others) has been investing heavily to modernize Hong Kong Airlines from an airline targeting vacationers to non-leisure […]

Iberia NEW Business Class Review A350 New York (JFK) to Madrid (MAD) – The proud and the lazy… plus BA First Lounge New York Terminal 7 and Alaska Lounge Terminal 7

Iberia has been upgrading their New York flights to a twice daily A350 with direct service to Madrid. When booking with Iberia Avios these flights used to price out under 35,000 Avios and $130 in taxes and fees. A wonderful deal when traveling from the US East Coast to Europe.

Air India Domestic Economy Review A319 New Delhi (DEL) to Agra (AGR) and American Express Centurion Lounge New Delhi

Air India gets a lot of flak for its sub-par long-haul economy and business class products. I wanted to try their domestic service for my trip to Agra. Air India runs an ‘Express’ from New Delhi to Varanasi, Agra, Khajuraho and back to New Delhi every other day. The new Terminal 3 in New Delhi […]

Jet Airways Economy Review New Delhi (DEL) to Kathmandu (KTM) (and return) B737, ITC Lounge Review DEL, Executive Lounge Review KTM

The day before my outbound travel to Kathmandu, Jet Airways had just announced the possible shutdown of the airline if employees did not start taking concessions.
