I felt it was time to give them a chance again and booked a Business Class one-way flight from Ulaanbaatar to San Francisco.

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

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 […]

Turkish Airlines Business Class Review Amsterdam to Cape Town via Istanbul on a A330 – a double Turkish delight

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

Indigo Partners serious about WOW Air, South African reaching for Emirates, Aerolineas Argentinas status match, Singapore Airlines discounted awards, Air Italy adding even more North American flights

Icelandair saves WOW Air before it crashes, Qatar finally bringing QSuites to the West Coast, Etihad Guest double miles, Japan Airlines finally adds Seattle and JetBlue introduces household accounts

– Icelandair is taking over WOW Air – so far no big surprise as both serve a rather small market but the shocking news – the WOW Air shareholders will just get 5.4% of Icelandair based on a $17 million valuation for an airline with as many long-haul destinations – that’s terrible! This is a […]
