Swiss Economy Class Review San Francisco (SFO) to Zurich (ZRH) B777 – the ‘Poor Man’s Business Class’ strikes again

Swiss Economy Class Review San Francisco (SFO) to Zurich (ZRH) B777 – the ‘Poor Man’s Business Class’ strikes again

Just a few months ago I was able to review Swiss Business Class from Zurich to San Francisco and thought it was a decent product (with a good number of flaws). However, I consider the Swiss airline ‘Premium’ brand in Economy and was looking forward to my flight. San Francisco International Terminal is connected to […]

Qatar Airways Economy Review Malta (MLA) to Addis Abeba (ADD) A320 and 777ER

Qatar Airways Economy Review Malta (MLA) to Addis Abeba (ADD) A320 and 777ER

For this Qatar Economy flight from Malta to Addis Abeba, I had reviewed a few options. I wasn’t sure what kind of aircraft Qatar Airways would use for the Doha to Addis Abeba leg (the equipment varies from an A320 to a 777W/L and B787). I also assumed the A320 from Doha would just come […]

Cathay Pacific Business Class Review Johannesburg to Hong Kong and Hong Kong to San Francisco

Cathay Pacific Business Class Review Johannesburg to Hong Kong and Hong Kong to San Francisco

I have had my share of Economy Business and First Class experiences on Cathay Pacific. Most of them have been very positive. I was curious what would have changed for this trip from Johannesburg to San Francisco. Cathay Pacific uses one of (the many) Priority Pass lounges at Johannesburg airport. These lounges all have the […]

Cathay Business Class Review San Francisco (SFO) to Hong Kong (HKG) and New Delhi (DEL) B773 and A330, Centurion Lounge SFO/Cathay Pacific Lounge SFO/Centurion Lounge Hong Kong Reviews

I had just flown over the Pacific a few days before this trip and was looking forward to enjoying one of my favorite business class products (especially for sleeping) again. Unfortunately, the inbound flight from Hong Kong had to make an emergency medical stop in Taipei on the way to San Francisco and that would […]

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

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

Cathay Pacific has been my go-to airline to get to Asia for a long time. I love the Cathay Pacific Business Class mini-suites (more so than Cathay Pacific First Class) and the airline goes to almost anywhere I want. Cathay Pacific Economy Class Cebu (CEB) to Hong Kong (HKG) on the A330, including the Plaza […]

Air New Zealand Business Class / Economy Class Review Auckland (AKL) to Brisbane (BNE) 777-200

Air New Zealand Business Class / Economy Class Review Auckland (AKL) to Brisbane (BNE) 777-200

After my great experience with Air New Zealand Business Class from San Francisco to Auckland, I was excited to be onboard the same product (but different airplane) again for my flight to Brisbane. Immigration and Security at the International Terminal in Auckland looked intimidating with long lines but they moved quickly and it took less […]

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 […]

Garuda Business Class Review Jakarta (CGK) to Bali (DPS) using A330 and Garuda Business Class Lounge Jakarta Airport (Terminal 3)

Garuda Indonesia uses the international configuration for a number of flights between the busiest airports in Indonesia Jakarta and Denpasar. Terminal 3 at Jakarta airport was just inaugurated a few weeks ago and everything is still shiny. It looks more than Singapore Changi Airport than what you are used to from Jakarta airport. Garuda is […]

Singapore Airlines Business Class Review Moscow (DME) to Singapore (SIN) SQ361 A350

Singapore Airlines Business Class Review Moscow (DME) to Singapore (SIN) SQ361 A350

I had originally booked an award ticket from Moscow to Houston on Singapore Airlines First Class. Singapore Airlines canceled their flight just shortly after and I requested to be routed via Singapore (the agents kept suggesting Lufthansa First Class, which had no availability). I was eventually reissued a ticket from Moscow to Singapore and then […]

Lufthansa Business Class Review A380 San Francisco (SFO) to Frankfurt (FRA)

Lufthansa Business Class Review A380 San Francisco (SFO) to Frankfurt (FRA)

Originally I was booked in Turkish Airlines’ direct flight from San Francisco to Istanbul but the airline decided to cancel my flight two weeks before departure and re-book me into a flight a day later which would have made my onward connection impossible. So I called United and they re-booked me after some back and […]

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 […]

Ethiopian Airlines Economy Review 787 Dreamliner Accra – Addis Ababa & Addis Ababa – Douala

Ethiopian Airlines Economy Review 787 Dreamliner Accra – Addis Ababa & Addis Ababa – Douala

Ethiopian Airlines is buying aircraft like other airlines buy pretzels. The airline has leased fourteen 787’s and has more on order. It also has bought thirteen A350’s to modernize its fleet and retire older planes that would have needed maintenance. I flew the 787 Dreamliner with Ethiopian Airlines in economy class as part of a […]
