Swiss Business Class Review Zurich (ZRH) to San Francisco (SFO) 777 – August 2019 including Swiss Business Class Lounge Zurich (ZRH) Review

This was just my second time on Swiss long-haul Business Class and I was excited about my flight. I had had two connections that day in the Austrian Business Class before my flight – so I was tired before I even got to Zurich. I was hoping the excitement would keep me awake. Terminal D […]

(Updated in 2018) My Favorite 26 Things to do Colombo, Sri Lanka

AMEX Centurion Lounge Miami Review

The American Express Centurion Lounge in Miami is located near Gate D12. Miami Airport is very spread out and it is easy to underestimate distances.

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 […]
