5 Reasons Why I’ll Miss airBerlin

The end is near for airBerlin. The airline filed for insolvency after Etihad Airways withdrew their financial support and now it is official – all airBerlin flights will terminate on 28 October. Over the past few months the airline has been slowly dying – and I’m sad about it. I really love airBerlin and I think they are a decent European airline with a great route… Read More

No Wonder “Normal” People Hate Frequent Flyer Miles…

A long time ago before I became involved in the miles & points hobby, I remember that my dad would always say about how miles are worthless because you need to spend 30k USD for a one-way flight to Europe, essentially earning 1 mile per $1 USD spent, without any signup bonus. This was a long time ago and I didn’t put much thinking into… Read More

The Strangest Place Lufthansa Offers First Class To…

Lufthansa First Class is the way to fly. With many carriers removing First Class or significantly cost-cutting First Class (Cathay, Etihad, Emirates, etc.), Lufthansa has maintained the same high standard in First Class for years.. no cost-cutting, same incredible level of service, delicious food, and an amazing overall product. Since I love LH First Class more than any other product, I was checking destinations that Lufthansa… Read More

Warning: Don’t Use AMEX with PayPal

While I generally used to love American Express, over the past year or so they have become an unreliable bank with mediocre card options and limited transfer partners. A few years ago, I told everyone that AMEX is the best due to the vast transfer partners, amazing signup offers, and generous cards. While some of that still exists today, the customer service American Express is… 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

60k American Airlines AAdvantage Miles for $95

Barclaycard issues some fantastic Travel Rewards Credit Cards and Point Rewards Credit Cards which can earn you a ton of valuable miles/points.

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

Cheap Lufthansa First Class Fares!

Lufthansa First Class is by far the best way to fly. I believe no other airline comes close to providing such an incredible and consistent First Class experience as much as Lufthansa does. I’ve flown Lufthansa First Class over fifty times at this point and will usually fly it over a different product, even if that means more layovers or flights.. after all, those are… Read More

I Think I’ve Found My Future Home…

It has been a little over a month since I’ve permanently moved back to Europe after completing uni in Seattle. While I loved Seattle, I didn’t really have any family there and I figured it would be the perfect time to move back home to Poland. One of the benefits of being a citizen of the European Union is that I can freely work and… Read More

Zurich is Magnificent

Hello from Zurich! This city is beyond magnificent and I love it as much as I love all of Switzerland. I’ve been here a number of times already, but the city always amazes me and it seems like every time I visit, the city becomes more gorgeous. I had the pleasure of flying the SWISS Bombardier CS100 from Kraków yesterday, after which we visited the… Read More

Flying the SWISS Bombardier CS100

Hello from Zurich! I just had the pleasure of flying the SWISS Bombardier CS100 aircraft from Kraków to Zurich. While the flight time was only one hour, it was truly amazing to fly the new aircraft SWISS is operating on European routes. The SWISS Bombardier CS100 has been gradually introduced into the fleet meanwhile the Avro RJ100 has been retired. The new CS100 aircraft is… Read More

My $800 SWISS Business Class Error Fare Ticket

I love SWISS. They’re an awesome airline with a great First and Business Class product and stunning lounges at their hubs in Zurich and Geneva. Yesterday I had the pleasure of booking a SWISS Business Class error fare ticket from Zurich to San Francisco, round trip, for less than $800 USD. SWISS wasn’t the only airline involved in the error fare from Munich to San… Read More
