South African Review Business Class A320 and A340 Nairobi (NBO) to Mauritius (MRU) via Johannesburg (JNB)

South African Review Business Class  A320 and A340 Nairobi (NBO) to Mauritius (MRU) via Johannesburg (JNB)

I had been on the exact same flight from Nairobi to Johannesburg a few years ago before my doomed flight to Dakar. I got to the airport early (Nairobi traffic is very unpredictable) but check-in was deserted with a very efficient agent completing my check-in in seconds. Immigration was deserted too and moments later, I […]

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

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. However, operations seemingly weren’t affected (as far as I could tell). Jet Airways operates from New Delhi’s Terminal 3, which is a new world of Indian aviation and looks more […]

Cathay Pacific Economy Review Cebu (CEB) to Hong Kong (HKG) A330, Plaza Premium Lounge Cebu Review and Cathay Pacific Economy Review Hong Kong (HKG) to San Francisco (SFO) A359

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
