Apply Now For The Miles & More World Elite Mastercard!

The first ever credit card that I applied for when I turned 18 is the Lufthansa Miles & More® World Elite Mastercard®, which is issued by Barclaycard US. I fly with Lufthansa and the Lufthansa Group the most and therefore Miles & More is my primary (and favourite) frequent flyer programme. Since I’m a Senator, I can literally book Lufthansa First Class or SWISS First Class… Read More

My Longest Economy Class Flight in 5+ Years

Thanks to miles and points, most of the time I don’t have to fly Economy Class. The only exceptions are flights under 3 hours – if Economy is substantially cheaper or there is a great deal, I do not mind Economy Class and will be perfectly happy if the flight is under 3 hours. The last time that I flew Economy Class on a long-haul… Read More

Canada to Europe Round-Trip for 20k SPG Points

My favourite frequent flyer programme is Miles & More. While the programme does impose fuel surcharges, those can often be lowered if you’re strategic about which routes you book. Furthermore, Miles & More allows anyone to book Lufthansa First Class whenever you want before departure (otherwise it is only released 14 days before departure to partner airlines). Currently, you can redeem 25k Miles & More… Read More

Happiness in a Picture

Here’s my happiness in a picture… actually more like in a screenshot: I was lucky to book two seats for myself and a friend next month from Zurich to San Francisco using Miles & More miles (I’m a Senator so I can bring along a companion even if they’re not a Senator).

How I’m Celebrating New Year’s Eve This Year

I’m not really the “grand party” type of guy – yeah I enjoy parties and meeting up with friends and whatnot, but I like it to be in a smaller environment instead of it being in a loud club or somewhere where it is impossible to talk. I’ve never really celebrated New Year’s Eve in terms of a big, proper party or whatever. This year… Read More

I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Been To Paris… Yet

I just came back from seeing some of my travel friends and we got into an interesting discussion tonight about all of the places we have been to and where we are going next. It was all fun and games until my friends asked me what my favourite memory of Paris was… and then it occurred to me that I’ve actually never gone to Paris…… Read More

Book Now: SWISS First Class Awards Wide Open For Miles & More Elites!

SWISS First Class is awesome – while it isn’t as amazing and incredible as Lufthansa First Class, SWISS First Class is still definitely in my top five. I’ve flown SWISS First Class a few times already on all of their long-haul aircraft (Airbus A330, Airbus A340, and Boeing 777) and because SWISS First awards are restricted to Miles & More Senators and HON Circle Members,… Read More

U.S. AAdvantage Agents See More Etihad First/Business Award Space!

Etihad First/Business Class is incredible. The airline features an amazing First Class Apartment on their Airbus A380 aircraft, which they fly to New York, London, Paris, Sydney, and Melbourne. I’ve flown Etihad First Class around five times already on all of their A380 routes and all I can say is that I’m always left in awe. The product is truly stunning and nothing like it… Read More

I Miss TSA PreCheck… A Lot

TSA PreCheck is arguably the only thing the TSA ever got right… something that actually improves the travel experience for passengers? Shocking! TSA PreCheck is virtually open to anyone residing in the United States and a few other countries and while there is a fee to join the programme, many fantastic Travel Rewards Credit Cards, Hotel Rewards Credit Cards, and Point Rewards Credit Cards provide a statement credit when you use… Read More
