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

Preview & Photos: Etihad First Class A380 Apartment

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to fly the Etihad First Class A380 Apartment, twice. The first flight was from Sydney to Abu Dhabi and then later, from Abu Dhabi to London-Heathrow. Both flights were marvellous and amazing. The crew, service, food, etc. was all perfect and I couldn’t be happier with Etihad. Having flown many First Class products in the sky throughout the… Read More


Etihad’s Boarding Music – So Relaxing!

My daily music playlist consists primarily of music produced for airlines, I just find it amazing, especially boarding music. So while I have almost an entire playlist dedicated to airline boarding music, I also have one for non-boarding music (as in brand music, for example). My favourite will always be Lufthansa’s Symphony of Angels. Lufthansa has a special place in my heart and I will always remain… Read More


Flying the Etihad First Class Apartment – Flying Reimagined

Wow! Wow! Wow!!!!! A few days ago, I was able to fly the Etihad First Class Apartment. Twice. Needless to say, I think these two flights were the best in my life. The first flight was from Sydney to Abu Dhabi and the second, from Abu Dhabi to London-Heathrow. I’m still in shock at how gorgeous the First Class cabin is and how downright incredible the service was… Read More


Booked: Etihad First and Qatar First!

Etihad First and Qatar First? or Etihad First? or Qatar First? Yesterday I asked you guys whether I should book another segment in Etihad First on the A380 (from Abu Dhabi to London) or if I should book Qatar Airways First on the A380 from Doha to either London or Paris. I also explained that I already booked Etihad First on the A380 from Melbourne… Read More


A380 First Class: Etihad or Qatar?

Before you comment the obvious, Etihad, please read the entire post! So.. I have already booked Melbourne to Abu Dhabi in Etihad First on the A380. But now another option is upon me – A380 First Class: Etihad or Qatar from the Middle East to Europe for 40k AAdvantage miles? Most of the A380 First Class products are amazing and perhaps Etihad’s is the best in… Read More


Booked: Etihad First Apartment – Melbourne to Abu Dhabi!

In a few weeks, American Airlines AAdvantage will be significantly changing their award chart and some awards will go up a lot of miles in price, therefore it is best to book aspirational awards before 22 March 2016. One of the most “hot” awards with AAdvantage right now is the Etihad First Apartment for as little as 40k miles. You can change the date/time for FREE with… Read More


Booking Etihad First Apartment using AAdvantage Miles

I primarily fly with the Star Alliance network as their carriers are world-class and feature amazing First and Business class experiences. However there are still aspirational premium cabins on other airlines outside of the Star Alliance that I want to try in 2016 – the main one being the Etihad First Apartment on their Airbus A380. Etihad Airways and American Airlines currently have a partnership… Read More
