Flying Qatar Airways B787 Business Class

Hello from one of the most relaxing places on Earth – Bali, Indonesia! I just flew here this morning from Doha, Qatar flying the Qatar Airways B787 Business Class – it’s incredible! Qatar Airways’ Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 aircraft feature the exact same Business Class product – in a 1-2-1 configuration, meaning each seat has direct aisle access. The ability to sit both next… Read More

When The Lufthansa Crew Stays at Your Hotel…

Assalamu alaykum from Qatar! I flew to Doha from Frankfurt yesterday in Lufthansa First Class, of course. The flight was excellent as usual and now I’m relaxing in Doha. This morning when I went to the beach (which was mostly empty), I hear German… I turn around and what do I see? The Lufthansa Crew from my flight! The Lufthansa Crew was excellent and the… Read More

Another Mini-RTW Begins!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer! I know I am, however for some reason, I didn’t travel much in July at all – only from Seattle to Kraków. That’s due to the fact that I just moved entirely back home to Kraków after completing uni in Seattle. July was truly hectic and my move explains the lack of posts on the blog.. so I… Read More

My Favourite Cathay Pacific Asia Miles Redemption

Cathay Pacific Asia Miles is a distance-based frequent flyer programme – meaning that the further you fly, the more you will pay. One huge advantage Asia Miles members have over other oneworld frequent flyer programmes, is that they have access to more Cathay Pacific award space (similar to what Lufthansa does – releases more seats to Miles & More members). I’ve redeemed many Asia Miles… Read More

Is Aeroplan Blocking Lufthansa First Class?

Despite not having flown Air Canada at all so far, I’ve redeemed over three million miles through their frequent flyer programme, Aeroplan. In general, I do like Aeroplan a lot – for the most part they have decent redemption rates, very competent agents, instant transfers from AMEX Membership Rewards, and Aeroplan doesn’t impose fuel surcharges on a number of airlines. However, recently, Aeroplan has been… Read More

Mixed Feelings: Moving From Seattle

However, I’m having mixed feelings about moving from Seattle… I’ve… Read More

American Express’ Customer Service Is Rapidly Declining

Look, I love American Express. One of the first cards I ever applied for when I turned 18 was the AMEX Premier Rewards Gold Card, and I still hold on to it. AMEX issues some fantastic Travel Rewards Credit Cards, Hotel Rewards Credit Cards, and generally any Point Rewards Credit Cards. They also have some amazing No Annual Fee Credit Cards, that earn real Membership Rewards… Read More

Lufthansa Business Class Isn’t Bad At All!

I think everyone knows how much I love Lufthansa First Class and Lufthansa in general. I’ve flown Lufthansa more times than I can count and they are truly an amazing European airline with exceptional service in all cabins of service. While I’ve flown Lufthansa First Class millions of times, I’ve only flown the Lufthansa Business Class long-haul product a few times and I figured it… Read More

Here’s My Favourite American Express Card

American Express is my favourite issuer of Travel Rewards Credit Cards, Hotel Rewards Credit Cards, and generally any Point Rewards Credit Cards. They also have some amazing No Annual Fee Credit Cards, that earn real Membership Rewards points that can be transferred to many airlines and hotels at a 1:1 ratio.. that’s incredible for a no annual fee card. One of the first American Express cards I… Read More

An Amazing Feeling: Burning LifeMiles

Do you ever have those moments when you are full of joy after emptying out a mileage account? I know that may sound crazy, but I felt wonderful today after I completely burned my Avianca LifeMiles and my account balance now shows zero. Success! While many bloggers and frequent travellers try to lure you into buying thousands of LifeMiles, I’m not one of them. I’ve… Read More
