The Best and Worst Priority Pass lounges worldwide

The Best and Worst Priority Pass lounges worldwide

Priority Pass has changed my airport life – generally for the better. There have been many instances when a long airport wait has been turned in to a productive, joy filled time instead. I have been to hundreds of lounges all around the world. Many are unremarkable but some stand out. Here are some 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

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 […]

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 […]

United Polaris Lounge San Francisco Review

United Polaris Lounge San Francisco Review

United has been busy behind the scenes for almost two years in renovating its huge United Club that’s just after security at the San Francisco International Terminal. Polaris branding came along in the meantime and the re-opening had been delayed for quite some time. It finally happened about a week ago and Oscar Munoz officially […]

Boutique Air Review Oakland (OAK) to Merced (MCE) – and then they left me stranded in Merced, CA

Boutique Air Review Oakland (OAK) to Merced (MCE) – and then they left me stranded in Merced, CA

Boutique Air was started in 2007 here in San Francisco by Shawn Simpson, an ex-Google employee. After initially serving charter contracts, the airline has been finding a way to grow, serving cities under the Essential Air Service program. The EAS is worth $263 million and is paid for by the federal government. Most cities would not […]

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

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

For my first United Basic Economy flight, I chose the San Francisco to Salt Lake City route. 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 […]

Canaryfly Review Las Palmas (LPA) to Tenerife North (TFN) and Sala Galdos Lounge Las Palmas Review

Canaryfly Review Las Palmas (LPA) to Tenerife North (TFN) and Sala Galdos Lounge Las Palmas Review

Canaryfly does not get much press but is one of the regional airlines competing with Binter Canarias and Air Europa for flights between the Canary Islands. Canaryfly and Binter Canarias sell tickets between the islands at a dual-price system – the subsidized price for island residents and the regular price. Regular fares are about twice […]

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 […]

Thai AirAsia Review Bangkok (DMK) to Saigon (SGN) and The Coral Executive Lounge, DMK, Review

AirAsia has been busy building its second biggest base after Kuala Lumpur with its Thai affiliate at Don Mueang, the old Bangkok Airport. From a small number of flights – originally just domestic Thai flights and connecting to the other AirAsia bases – business has been growing quickly. The number of destinations from Bangkok now competes […]

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

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 […]

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. […]
