Singapore Airlines Economy Review 787 and A330 Bali to Male, Maldives via Singapore

Singapore Airlines Economy Review 787 and A330 Bali to Male, Maldives via Singapore

  Singapore Airlines has been a long-standing contender for the Worlds’ Best Airline awards and seems to have a reputation for great service and an excellent product. However, I always feel the airline overpromises and underdelivers. Singapore Airlines Economy Review Check-in Singapore Airlines does invest in a good number of check-in agents at Denpasar airport. […]

Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach Review

Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach Review

The Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach is nestled between several hotel developments right at Double Six Beach, Seminyak. While the surf at this beach can be dangerous with highly varying water levels the area is my favorite in Bali. There are great eateries and restaurants as well as good coffee in the immediate neighborhood. We […]

Hampton by Hilton Nanning Review

Hampton by Hilton Nanning Review

The Hampton by Hilton Nanning is outside the Nanning city center (which is roughly near the Mixc Mall) and a new development that huddles a tangential artery towards the city. Google Maps DOES not have the right location but most Chinese apps have. The front desk did not speak a word of English and skipped […]

Hong Kong Airlines Business Class Lounge Review

Hong Kong Airlines Business Class Lounge Review

Hong Kong Airlines runs two lounges one smallish at Gate 23 (Club Bauhinia) and a rather big lounge at the satellite terminal at Hong Kong Airport. The 200+ numbered gates are a train ride away from the rest of the airport (and the Hong Kong Airport train). I found it a surprisingly long set of […]

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

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 […]

China Eastern Economy Review Bali (DPS) to Los Angeles (LAX) and T/G Lounge Review – or my adventures with the poor man’s Business Class continue

China Eastern Economy Review Bali (DPS) to Los Angeles (LAX) and T/G Lounge Review – or my adventures with the poor man’s Business Class continue

This was the return part of a trip that started last December, as I flew with China Eastern from Los Angeles to Bangkok. I did like my ‘outbound’ trip, especially considering the low price (really just $170 per direction, so $340 for the round-trip). I arrived at Bali‘s Denpasar Ngurah Rai International Airport 2.5 hours before the […]

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

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 […]

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 […]
