Swiss Economy Class Review San Francisco (SFO) to Zurich (ZRH) B777 – the ‘Poor Man’s Business Class’ strikes again

Swiss Economy Class Review San Francisco (SFO) to Zurich (ZRH) B777 – the ‘Poor Man’s Business Class’ strikes again

Just a few months ago I was able to review Swiss Business Class from Zurich to San Francisco and thought it was a decent product (with a good number of flaws). However, I consider the Swiss airline ‘Premium’ brand in Economy and was looking forward to my flight. San Francisco International Terminal is connected to […]

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 […]

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. […]

Singapore Airlines Business Class Review Moscow (DME) to Singapore (SIN) SQ361 A350

Singapore Airlines Business Class Review Moscow (DME) to Singapore (SIN) SQ361 A350

I had originally booked an award ticket from Moscow to Houston on Singapore Airlines First Class. Singapore Airlines canceled their flight just shortly after and I requested to be routed via Singapore (the agents kept suggesting Lufthansa First Class, which had no availability). I was eventually reissued a ticket from Moscow to Singapore and then […]

Cathay Pacific Business Class Review Johannesburg (JNB) to Hong Kong (HKG) and Shongololo Lounge Review

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 […]

Mango Economy Review Cape Town (CPT) to Johannesburg (JNB) and Bidvest Premier Lounge Review

Mango Economy Review Cape Town (CPT) to Johannesburg (JNB) and Bidvest Premier Lounge Review

Mango is the low-cost South African Airways subsidiary that serves mostly Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. The Cape Town to Johannesburg route is highly competitive and there are several airlines with a regular daily service right now. I paid $70 per ticket for the one-way flight with Mango. As at Johannesburg Airport, I used the […]
