Air New Zealand Business Class Review Auckland (AKL) to Los Angeles (LAX) 777W

Air New Zealand Business Class Review Auckland (AKL) to Los Angeles (LAX) 777W

After trying out the Air New Zealand long-haul business class product from San Francisco to Auckland and being suitably impressed, I was looking forward to flying back to the US but this time it would be to Los Angeles International Airport instead. It ended up being a similarly excellent experience overall. By the time I had […]

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

Aeromexico Business Class Review Los Angeles (LAX) to Mexico (MEX) and Mexico (MEX) to Los Angeles (LAX) 737

Aeromexico Business Class Review Los Angeles (LAX) to Mexico (MEX) and Mexico (MEX) to Los Angeles (LAX) 737

Aeromexico used their new 787 to and from Los Angeles for a while but this was a fleeting phenomenon (only before I booked unfortunately). Instead, the airline uses two separate 737s right now. At LAX, Delta just changed to the same terminal as Aeromexico, so the Air Canada lounge will likely become a Delta Sky Club. […]

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 […]
