Cathay Pacific’s Fantastic Brand Video

I love Cathay Pacific. I honestly think they’re the best airline in oneworld, with the best First Class product (maybe even also Business Class). Despite the fact that their frequent flyer programme, Asia Miles, isn’t industry leading, the airline still offers an amazing ground experience and also a great experience in all cabins of service. I’ve flown Cathay Pacific lots of times before, mostly in First… Read More

My New AMEX Platinum Metal Card is Here!

American Express announced a few weeks ago some major changes to their prestigious Platinum Card, which is the original “premium” travel card. Some changes include a $200 USD Uber credit, 5x points for hotel bookings, and an all-new metal design. I’ve been waiting daily since the announcement for the new changes to take effect, and I’ve already used the Uber credit for a few rides in… Read More

Flying AeroMéxico’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner in Business Class

Hello from Mexico City! I just arrived here from Amsterdam flying AeroMéxico’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner in Business Class (Clase Premier). I’ve spent the past two weeks on a crazy trip around the world (make sure you’re following me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook), and therefore I decided that since I was in Europe, I would visit my family at home in Poland for a few days… Read More

Cathay Pacific Business Class is Awesome!

Hello from Asia’s World City – Hong Kong! I just flew here in Cathay Pacific Business Class from San Francisco on the Boeing 777-300ER overnight and landed in Hong Kong this morning. I redeemed Alaska Airlines miles for this Cathay Pacific flight and another flight I have in a few days. So Hong Kong is my stopover for the purpose of the award – Alaska… Read More

When Lufthansa First Class is Home…

I’ve said it before and I’ll continue to say it – I LOVE Lufthansa First Class. It’s my favourite way to fly and I think Lufthansa has all around the best First Class product (factoring in the ground experience, lounges, soft and hard products, etc.) I’ve flown LH First Class more times than I can count, but my favourite configuration was on the Boeing 747-400, where… Read More

Asiana Doesn’t Impose Fuel Surcharges on Etihad Redemptions

Asiana Airlines Asiana Club is a very unique frequent flyer programme. Not only can you redeem Asiana miles for incredible flights (such as Lufthansa First Class for just 40k Starpoints from America to Europe), but they also partner with Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways.. both of which, in my opinion, are amazing airlines. A while back I wrote how it is possible to redeem 35k… Read More

Hotels in London: Always a Struggle

Ever since the massive Club Carlson devaluation, I’ve been struggling with booking hotels in London. Club Carlson has over 20 hotels in London and they are all conveniently located throughout the city – so there literally is a Club Carlson hotel next to every major London landmark. In 2015 when I visited London, I booked the Plaza on the River and The May Fair, two… Read More

Best Miles & More Feature: Senator Companion Award

I love Miles & More. Yes, they charge fuel surcharges on nearly every single airline and yes most of the award flights booked through them are a bit overpriced.. but… I love Miles & More. Perhaps my favourite feature (besides being able to redeem miles for Lufthansa and SWISS First Class when I want) is the Miles & More Senator Companion Award. The Senator Companion… Read More
