50 Hours in Turkish Airlines Business Class for ~$1600

Whenever I think of Turkish Airlines, I think “amazing in the sky” and “not so amazing on the ground”. Istanbul Airport is terrible, end of story. Overcrowded, dirty, and awful for connections. Furthermore, the Turkish Airlines Business Class Lounge in Istanbul is incredibly big that it gives me anxiety since you can get lost in it. While the lounge does have amazing food, it is… Read More

SWISS was Right to Cancel First Class Tickets

SWISS First Class is one of the most exclusive and best First Class products in the world. Having flown the product a number of times now, I can say that SWISS First Class is awesome and while it isn’t as great as Lufthansa First Class, it is still incredible. SWISS is an exclusive airline and I think they perfectly represent Switzerland in values and traditions…. Read More

Aeroplan’s Newest “Glitch”: LOT Polish Airlines Not Bookable

Here we go again… honestly, Aeroplan knows they will be gone soon so why are they becoming worse and worse as they die? I don’t get it. Aeroplan used to be one of my favourite frequent flyer programmes, but now, I wouldn’t consider them in the top rankings. Ever since the announcement of the Air Canada and Aeroplan breakup, Aeroplan has been trying to tell… Read More

Dear Lufthansa: 5 Star Airlines Don’t Copy U.S. Airlines

Lufthansa was ranked as a “5 Star Airline” by Skytrax earlier this month, a ranking that was well deserved for the airline as Lufthansa’s First Class is the best in the world, the airline has the best European operations, and the FAs and ground staff are excellent in all cases. I love and will always love Lufthansa as I truly believe they are the best… Read More

Miles & More Award Booking: 23/27 Star Alliance Airlines Bookable Online (Full List)

Lufthansa’s frequent flyer programme, Miles & More, has been gradually improving their website over the past year or so to make it more user friendly and unique. Up until a few months ago, only integrated airline partners’ award flights were bookable online. In October, Lufthansa added the ability to book more Star Alliance airlines online and promised that by the end of this year, most… Read More

Disappointing: Lufthansa Miles & More Becomes Revenue-Based in 2018

This is a day I have not been looking forward to for a few years. Ever since the announcement of revenue-based frequent flyer programmes in North America, I knew that eventually European airlines would follow – it was just a matter of time and I was so very much hoping for “later” rather than “sooner”. However, we all knew this was coming. The Lufthansa Group… Read More

Lufthansa is now a Skytrax Five Star Airline

Happy Monday! There’s some incredible news coming from Lufthansa and Skytrax today, specifically, Lufthansa German Airlines is now a Skytrax Five Star Airline! Lufthansa has long been a five-star airline in my eyes and in the eyes of many others, but now it is official! With an incredible First Class product, a brand new Business Class concept, amazing lounges, professional service, etc, etc, etc., Lufthansa is… Read More

Booked: SWISS First Class with Aeroplan Miles

Most of the time, SWISS First Class award redemptions are highly restricted to only Miles & More Senator or HON Circle Members… they should be restricted all of the time per the official rules… but SWISS doesn’t know how to properly block “O” Class inventory and occasionally SWISS First becomes bookable using other Star Alliance miles… that happened again yesterday. No one really knows the… Read More

Is Lufthansa Miles & More HON Circle Worth It?

Lufthansa Miles & More HON Circle status is the ultimate top-tier status in the frequent flyer world. Everyone knows about HON Circle, but only a few thousand people hold the status – that’s because it is incredibly hard to achieve. Miles & More HON Circle status requires 600k flown HON Circle Miles over two years (if you split it – it’s only 300k per year). The… Read More

Air Canada’s New Business Class Lounge Is Incredible

When it comes to North American carriers, Air Canada is probably the most “premium” airline from all of the choices (American, Delta, United, etc). While I’ve redeemed over a million Aeroplan miles, I’ve yet to fly Air Canada – that’s going to change soon. My good friend and fellow blogger Avery from Don’t Call the Airline! was recently invited to preview Air Canada’s new intercontinental Business… Read More
