KLM Business Class Review (new cabin) Kuala Lumpur (KUL) – Jakarta (CGK) 777-300ER and Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounge KLIA Review

KLM Business Class Review (new cabin) Kuala Lumpur (KUL) – Jakarta (CGK) 777-300ER and Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounge KLIA Review

KLM has been running the so-called ‘shuttle’ between Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta for many years. The Netherlands still has strong ties to its former colonies and the KLM brand is strong despite their airline’s hub being so far away. KLM is using the newly remodeled Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounge at the KLIA Satellite Terminal. To […]

Asiana Business Class Review Los Angeles (LAX) to Seoul (ICN) A380 and Star Alliance Lounge LAX Review

Asiana Business Class Review Los Angeles (LAX) to Seoul (ICN) A380 and Star Alliance Lounge LAX Review

Asiana has always been an airline I’ve gone back to, despite its issues. It’s just so well-integrated into Star Alliance and award availability isn’t an issue either. I arrived early with my connecting flight into LAX and made my way from the United terminal to the Tom Bradley International Terminal. You can walk there without […]

Is it time to stop flying AirAsia?

Is it time to stop flying AirAsia?

I have been flying Air Asia for half a decade and saw it grow from a small operation in a tiny cargo terminal to what is now Asia’s biggest airline. Out of about two dozen flights, almost all were positive and I liked the airline’s commitment to simplicity, low cost, and punctuality. I also liked […]

United Basic Economy Review San Francisco (SFO) to Salt Lake City (SLC)

United Basic Economy Review San Francisco (SFO) to Salt Lake City (SLC)

For my first United Basic Economy flight, I chose the San Francisco to Salt Lake City route. United operates the route with Embraer and Bombardier aircraft to connect their Denver and San Francisco hubs (with stops in Aspen). Booking United Basic Economy I booked my tickets via Orbitz, which simply mentioned the cabin item restriction […]

LEVEL Economy Review Barcelona (BCN) to Oakland (OAK) A330-200 and Sala VIP Miro Lounge BCN Review

LEVEL Economy Review Barcelona (BCN) to Oakland (OAK)  A330-200 and Sala VIP Miro Lounge BCN Review

LEVEL launched with big plans in early 2017 and I was curious to see how this low-cost long-haul airline would shape up for this review. LEVEL has been drawing most of its resources from BA and Iberia and is just emancipating itself. I had booked my ticket for just $149 on the day tickets became available; […]

Canaryfly Review Las Palmas (LPA) to Tenerife North (TFN) and Sala Galdos Lounge Las Palmas Review

Canaryfly Review Las Palmas (LPA) to Tenerife North (TFN) and Sala Galdos Lounge Las Palmas Review

Canaryfly does not get much press but is one of the regional airlines competing with Binter Canarias and Air Europa for flights between the Canary Islands. Canaryfly and Binter Canarias sell tickets between the islands at a dual-price system – the subsidized price for island residents and the regular price. Regular fares are about twice […]

Saudia Economy Review Riyadh (RUH) to Addis Ababa (ADD) and Wellcome Lounge Riyadh Review

Saudia Economy Review Riyadh (RUH) to Addis Ababa (ADD) and Wellcome Lounge Riyadh Review

After deplaning from my prior Saudia flight from Kochi, I followed the rather flimsy signs towards transit. An overly sleepy single attendant manned the security checkpoint and mentioned that he expected just four (!) other transit passengers within the hour. Not a busy day then! Riyadh Airport has two terminals that are interconnected behind security with […]

Saudia Economy Review Kochi (COK) to Riyadh (RUH) A330 and Earth Lounge Kochi Review

Saudia Economy Review Kochi (COK) to Riyadh (RUH) A330 and Earth Lounge Kochi Review

For reasons I don’t fully understand, Saudia files very low fares from several South Indian cities to Addis Abeba (despite minimal competition). Saudia fares usually work one-way for half price and so I booked Kochi (COK) to Addis Abeba (ADD) for under $100 in economy for the 3,000-mile journey connecting via Riyadh (RUH). When booking […]

VietJet Review Saigon (SGN) to Bangkok (BKK) A320 and Orchid Lounge (SGN) Review

VietJet Review Saigon (SGN) to Bangkok (BKK) A320 and Orchid Lounge (SGN) Review

VietJet is Vietnam’s incarnation of a low-cost airline. VietJet is a publicly listed company and has been enjoying a competition-free environment in its sector as AirAsia hasn’t decisively moved in yet. The VietJet website was a bit clunky to work with and it took some back and forth to get the ticket I wanted. The […]
