Avianca FA Doesn’t Believe I’m in Business Class!

As if the trip back to Seattle from Peru couldn’t get any more, well, interesting… As I wrote yesterday, my friend and I were flying from Lima to the U.S., after a wonderful trip to Peru, and we were both treated like sh!t by the Lima Airport ground agents.. and I’m sure everyone was equally badly treated – so there’s no distinction between Business Class… Read More

Lima Airport: Where Airlines Treat Passengers Like Sh!t

Hello from Lima Airport where I’m not having the best end to my wonderful South American adventure due to the incompetence and rudeness of multiple airline staff. It has been a wonderful week, I spent most of it in Cusco and yesterday visited Machu Picchu, which was a real gem and a place I’ve wanted to visit for years. I also stayed at Tambo del Inka,… Read More

Lufthansa Breaks My Luggage, Sends New Bags 2 Days Later

Have I mentioned I love Lufthansa yet?! I was flying from Frankfurt to Kraków recently in Lufthansa Business Class on an Airbus A319 and checked some bags for the short-haul flight of one hour. I checked in semi-used bags that I’ve had for a few years now, though they weren’t damaged in any way. When I arrived in Kraków, I noticed one of the bags… Read More

LATAM is so Stingy with Award Availability

LATAM Airlines is the unified airline of LAN and TAM, both oneworld members. The two airlines are still in the process of the merger.. and it is taking ages to complete. A majority of the planes are still painted in separate LAN and TAM liveries, while the branding is all as one unified airline – LATAM. Personally, I really like the logo and branding of… Read More

Earn Miles & More Miles for Cathay Pacific Flights

Lufthansa announced a few months ago that it will begin codesharing with Cathay Pacific. Lufthansa would place their flight number on some of Cathay’s flights to Oceania and Cathay would place their flight number on Lufthansa, Austrian, and SWISS flights to Europe. Back in the days, most of codesharing success and practices were usually done between airlines within the same alliance. Well, like most other airlines, Lufthansa… Read More

Avianca LifeMiles Is One Big Scam

Avianca’s LifeMiles frequent flyer programme has mostly great redemption rates and doesn’t charge fuel surcharges for any Star Alliance airline, making it one of the few Star Alliance frequent flyer programmes that do not charge fuel surcharges. While LifeMiles are great since the redemption rates are generally good, their website has known to be awful. And it has gotten even worse than it was. The LifeMiles website… Read More

Qantas First Class Lounge at LAX Isn’t That Great…

Two weeks ago I flew to Hong Kong from Los Angeles in Cathay Pacific First Class, and the flight (as always) was amazing. I love Cathay – they’re such an incredible airline and I love everything about their brand. Cathay First Class passengers out of LAX are entitled to use the Qantas First Class Lounge, which is also available to other oneworld First Class passengers. To… Read More

Flying Fiji Airways Business Class

Bula! I’ve spent the past two weeks in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Fiji – and as of yesterday, I’m back in Seattle for just two more final days of university, at which point I will graduate. Because why not fly half-way around the world a week before you’re set to graduate… Anyway, I had the pleasure of flying Cathay Pacific First Class from Los Angeles… Read More

Oh, man… things are about to get very interesting! I just made a decision that I’d never thought I would have to even think about making. Well… China Eastern Business Class is booked!

Weekend in Honolulu

Aloha! This past weekend I decided to go to Honolulu for 2 days (but really only 1 night). The trip was funded by Bank of America’s MERRILL + Visa Signature Credit Card, which offers up to $1000 USD in free travel upon completing minimum spend. My last minute flight to Hawaii cost around $600 USD, and therefore it was completely covered by the credit card, meaning… Read More

Cathay Pacific’s Fantastic Brand Video

I love Cathay Pacific. I honestly think they’re the best airline in oneworld, with the best First Class product (maybe even also Business Class). Despite the fact that their frequent flyer programme, Asia Miles, isn’t industry leading, the airline still offers an amazing ground experience and also a great experience in all cabins of service. I’ve flown Cathay Pacific lots of times before, mostly in First… Read More
