Confirmed: 60k Avianca LifeMiles for $149 USD!

Avianca, a Star Alliance member, has a very interesting and creative frequent flyer programme, LifeMiles. While the airline has a strong presence in South America, they are otherwise not very globally recognised. They do have a fantastic Business Class product on their new Boeing 787s and offer convenient routes and connections for those flying to South America. Avianca’s LifeMiles is unique because they do not… Read More

Book Lufthansa First Class For 40k Starpoints

As mentioned millions of times before, Lufthansa First Class is my favourite way to fly. There’s just no other airline that offers such a consistent experience in First Class – both on the ground and in the air. Lufthansa First Class is usually expensive as it costs a number of miles and also most often you’ll pay fuel surcharges (if not, you’ll pay a lot… Read More

Flying SWISS First on the Boeing 777-300ER!

Grüezi! Last Thursday I had the privilege of flying SWISS First Class from Zurich to Los Angeles on HB-JND, one of SWISS’ brand new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The flight was absolutely incredible and the new First Class product is miles ahead of SWISS’ A340 First Class, and also even a bit better than SWISS’ A330 First Class. I redeemed 85k Miles and More miles two days… Read More

Preview & Photos: SWISS First Class A330

SWISS First Class is among my favourite to redeem Miles & More miles for, it may have something to do with the fact that it is usually wide open for Miles & More Senator and HON Circle Members.. but also because I love SWISS. Yesterday I shared a tip with all of you about how you can fly SWISS First Class using ANY Star Alliance miles….. Read More

When the Lufthansa Strike Affects You… Twice…

Look, I love Lufthansa, and I’m sure many of you know that. But, seriously, they really need to figure out something regarding their pilots and flight attendants constantly going on strike. Does Lufthansa really want to keep cancelling thousands of flights or should they just pay their pilots more? Anyway… As you know, I posted about how last week I was planning a Lufthansa First… Read More

When Someone Takes Your Lufthansa First Class Award Space…

It’s no secret on this blog and in my life that I love Lufthansa First Class. Lufthansa has all around the best service and consistency of any airline – they’re just perfect in every aspect. Yes, they don’t have the best First Class hard product, but when you factor in other things, I strongly will argue Lufthansa provides the best First Class experience. Just read some of… Read More
