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 […]

Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse San Francisco (SFO) Review

Virgin Atlantic has long been present with its own lounge at San Francisco International Airport (SFO). It was time for me to try out the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse, to see how the food, lounge location and the staff are shaping up. The Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse is before security at SFO – just above the security […]

Review: Plaza Premium Lounge Vancouver

Review: Plaza Premium Lounge Vancouver

Virgin Atlantic just started flights from Vancouver last year. It's a bit of an odd route since there isn't much of a network provided by Virgin Atlantic affiliates.
