When United Can’t Refund Correctly…

I need to rant. I’ve just about had it with United and their refunds department (oh, and perhaps their horrible computer system which can never process anything correctly). Let me explain. As you all know, I have an award booking service, and one of my clients needed to change his award ticket for travel out of a different city. Ok, no problem. I changed the… Read More

The Next Report Format: Video Review?

I’ve written tons and tons of flight reviews throughout the years, and it takes me on average 4-6 hours from start to finish to write the average First/Business Class review of a long-haul flight. It isn’t that I don’t like it or anything, but it just really is time consuming. In the end, however, I always enjoy reading back the reports and reliving my experiences. That’s… Read More


Booked: Austrian B767 Business Class

How To Book LifeMiles Awards Not Available Online

Avianca’s frequent flyer programme, LifeMiles, can be both amazing and horrible at the same time. The programme is so limited, yet sometimes so powerful (at the same time), that it’s just crazy. Here’s my experience booking LifeMiles awards that aren’t available online (such as your desired flight combination). Before I begin, I should note that LifeMiles is currently offering a bonus on purchased miles (as they… Read More

Miles and More: One Thing I Hate

Lufthansa’s Miles and More is a great frequent flyer programme for those who fly mostly First/Business Class and higher Economy Class fares. Miles and More award miles generously for First and Business Class, and also for expensive Economy fares. Senator Status (Star Alliance Gold) requires 100k Status Miles within one year, and the status is valid for at least two years (meaning you don’t need… Read More


Review: Cathay Pacific First and Business Class Lounge Frankfurt

The Trip of AA Lifetime (Asia, Australia, Middle East) – Introduction oneworld operate flights from Frankfurt Airport’s Terminal 2… which I’ve flown out of once in my life, a few years ago. The rest of my travel through Frankfurt has been either through Terminal 1 or the Lufthansa First Class Terminal.

Aeroplan: No Fuel Surcharges on These Airlines

Air Canada’s frequent flyer programme, Aeroplan, is usually my top choice when redeeming AMEX Membership Rewards points to make a flight booking on Star Alliance. Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer is probably my second choice. Before the Aeroplan changes in December 2015, I would say it was my favourite frequent flyer programme for booking Lufthansa First Class awards – at just 62.5k miles between Europe and North America….
