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 […]

Malawian Airlines Economy Review Blantyre to Lilongwe, Malawi and on to Lusaka, Zambia

Malawian Airlines is the product of the bankrupt Air Malawi and the investment of Ethiopian Airlines into a national airline. Malawi is not exactly a huge country, so the fleet size of the airline is just two planes so far. Ethiopian loaned the airline a Bombardier Q400 and a somewhat aging 737-700. Malawian Airlines serves […]

Etihad First Class Review Abu Dhabi (AUH) to San Francisco (SFO) EY183 777-200

Cathay Pacific Business Class Review Hong Kong (HKG) to Bahrain (BAH) via Dubai (DXB) A330 CX 745

After my 10-day ‘layover’ in Hong Kong (and after exploring Phnom Penh and Hanoi), I was curious to see how much I’d like the A330 configuration for Cathay Pacific Business Class.

The 15 Things I Learned about Cambodia this week

Your Mighty Travels Guide to the ‘Stans – Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan

The Central Asia countries are often grouped together as ‘Stans. While this does not entirely do them justice, many have a similar history and a somewhat comparable culture. I just spent three weeks in Central Asia and have traveled there before. I have excluded Afghanistan and Pakistan from this guide; they both have a security […]
