Cathay Pacific Business Class Review Johannesburg (JNB) to Hong Kong (HKG) and Shongololo Lounge Review

Cathay Pacific Business Class Review Johannesburg (JNB) to Hong Kong (HKG) and Shongololo Lounge Review

Cathay Pacific has had a long-standing service to and from South African’s largest city and I was curious to try out the long flight over the Indian Ocean to Hong Kong. The flight does not feature a first class anymore, but is run in a three-cabin configuration (economy, premium economy and business). It now features the new […]

Mango Economy Review Cape Town (CPT) to Johannesburg (JNB) and Bidvest Premier Lounge Review

Mango Economy Review Cape Town (CPT) to Johannesburg (JNB) and Bidvest Premier Lounge Review

Mango is the low-cost South African Airways subsidiary that serves mostly Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. The Cape Town to Johannesburg route is highly competitive and there are several airlines with a regular daily service right now. I paid $70 per ticket for the one-way flight with Mango. As at Johannesburg Airport, I used the […]

Kulula Economy Review Johannesburg (JNB) to Cape Town (CPT) and Bidvest Sky Lounge Review

Kulula is a Comair subsidiary and is one of many airlines plowing the Johannesburg to Cape Town route – one of the world’s busiest. Comair itself is a small airline that is owned and run by British Airways. The Johannesburg to Cape Town (and also Durban) market is very competitive. Kulula is not part of Oneworld […]

Turkish Airlines Star Alliance Lounge, Nairobi Airport (NBO) Review

Turkish Airlines Star Alliance Lounge, Nairobi Airport (NBO) Review

The lounge situation at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport isn’t great, since part of the terminal burnt down a few years ago. Two years ago, South African Regional Business Class gave me a voucher for a rather terrible coffee shop instead of any lounge access. Now Turkish Airlines has invested in a proper lounge at […]

Qatar Business Class Review Berlin (TXL) to Doha (DOH) A330 and BA Terraces Lounge at TXL Review

Qatar Business Class Review Berlin (TXL) to Doha (DOH) A330 and BA Terraces Lounge at TXL Review

British Airways Terraces Lounge at Berlin Airport Review Unfortunately, I had a rather disappointing lounge experience at Berlin Tegel, as well as a disappointing overall airport experience. Check-in at the airport was cramped, as were the immigration and security areas. There was also a long bus transfer in the cold. The British Airways Terraces Lounge is a […]

Qatar Business Class Review Doha (DOH) to Windhoek, Namibia (WDH) 787 and another visit to the Qatar Al Mourjan Business Lounge

Qatar Airways Al Mourjan Business Lounge Review At Doha Airport, I had a great lounge experience at Al Mourjan, with lots of sleep in one of the dedicated quiet rooms. I’ve reviewed this lounge before and found it to be almost perfect. It’s huge and luxurious, with plenty of features like a fully-equipped business center, games room and […]

Etihad First Class Lounge & Spa Abu Dhabi Airport (AUH) Review

Etihad First Class Lounge & Spa Abu Dhabi Airport (AUH) Review

After my somewhat disappointing visit to the Qatar Al Safwa First Class Lounge, I was ready to take on the Etihad First Class Lounge that same evening. Etihad is run by a huge number of British expatriates and there is a lot of British understatement here. For starters, the lounge entrance is hidden along all […]

Etihad Business Class Review San Francisco (SFO) to Abu Dhabi (AUH) EY182 777L (incl. Etihad Wi-Fly Review), Cathay Pacific Lounge SFO and Etihad Arrivals Lounge

I had been on the westbound flight (my Etihad Business Class Review) just 5 weeks earlier – this time I took the day time flight from the US to the UAE. Etihad uses Empire CLS in San Francisco for their complimentary chauffeur service (also on award tickets such as mine). The driver picked me up […]

Oryx Lounge Doha Review

Oryx Lounge Doha Review

The Oryx Lounge is the best Business Class alternative at Doha International airport if you don’t have access to the excellent Qatar Business Class Lounge Al Mourjan (Review) . I got access to the lounge because of Etihad Business Class flight that same day. When we arrived at the lounge we just had come off […]

Lagos ASL Premium Lounge Review

Lagos ASL Premium Lounge Review

Despite being rather small, Lagos Airport has a stunning six Priority Pass lounges. There are a number of premium pax departing from Lagos and most lounge operators have decided to cash in on Priority Pass without being exclusive to a particular airline. All the check-in documentation highlighted the need to be at the airport early. […]

Oneworld Lounge Bogota Review

Oneworld Lounge Bogota Review

Bogota Airport’s international terminal is a rather modern affair. Right after security you can find the Oneworld Lounge here, which LATAM runs; it has indeed invested in stylish interior design, which I found to be its biggest selling point. The lounge internet was slow and was just about good enough for web browsing, however. The […]

The new American Express Centurion Lounge in Mexico City Review

The new American Express Centurion Lounge in Mexico City Review

American Express has moved their Centurion Lounge at Mexico City Airport to a position inside security – near gate 18. The American Express Centurion Lounge in Mexico City (Review) was located outside security before and wasn’t anything to write home about. I was a bit excited – I admit – to see the new lounge […]

Nairobi Airport suffered substantial damage in a major fire in 2013 and since then many premium facilities have been missing. Kenya Airways has actually started fixing that now with the newly-opened Pride Lounge. The Pride Lounge is the primary business class lounge for any SkyTeam Premium passengers and for SkyTeam elite members. I got access during my […]

Ethiopian Airlines Business Class Lounge, Bole International Airport Addis Ababa Review

Ethiopian Airlines runs two business class lounges at Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa – one for business class passengers booked on Ethiopian flights and one for Star Alliance Gold members. In order to review these lounges, it’s useful to keep in perspective where you are coming from. If it’s your first lounge visit in the […]

Pearl Lounge – Kigali Airport Executive Lounge Review

Pearl Lounge – Kigali Airport Executive Lounge Review

Kigali (and Rwanda) takes building ‘islands of excellence’ seriously. Infrastructure is a top priority and the Kigali airport, while small, could serve passengers anywhere in the world. In fact many US airports are far worse at serving passengers than this snazzy little airport. The service also includes a lounge – the Pearl Lounge is Kigali […]

Cathay Pacific The Pier First Class Lounge Review Hong Kong

For my Cathay Pacific First Class flight two weeks ago from Singapore to Hong Kong and on to San Francisco I had a 4 hour layover in Hong Kong. Since I had been to The Wing First Class lounge near Gate 4 several times I wanted to try something new. Since May 2015 Cathay Pacific […]

Etihad Business Class Lounge London (LHR) Review

Etihad Business Class Lounge London (LHR) Review

The Etihad Business Class Lounge London (LHR) is located directly under the Skyteam London Heathrow Lounge which I have fond memories of. The Etihad Business Class Lounge London gets very little daylight especially on this cloudy London afternoon. I arrived early and asked nicely (!) to be put on an earlier flight and the agent […]
