OMG: Finnair’s Obsession with Blueberries

Hello from Helsinki! I returned from a wonderful trip to Japan, flying Finnair Business Class both ways – on the outbound on the Airbus A350-900 and on the return on the Airbus A330-300. Finnair’s flagship aircraft is the A350, featuring a fantastic Business Class product in a 1-2-1 configuration. Their A330s have their old Business Class product which is similar to what SWISS has.

LOT Polish Airlines Adds San Francisco Flights

Perhaps they should buy more aircraft before they announce new routes, no? Because they’re currently leasing a bunch of aircraft as they don’t have enough Dreamliners to fly their long-hauls (and some 787s are still out for repair). LOT Polish Airlines has announced their plans to fly to San Francisco as of 05 August 2020 from their hub in Warsaw. LOT’s current hubs include Warsaw… Read More

Finnair will continue flying to Narita once daily, but will remove their additional frequency to Narita and instead fly to Haneda beginning 29… Read More

Live from Finnair A350 Business Class!

Hello from somewhere over Russia! I’m currently en route from Helsinki to Japan on the Finnair A350-900 XWB flying their gorgeous Business Class. I flew SAS yesterday from Copenhagen to Helsinki and spent this morning exploring the city. While it was beautiful, the weather wasn’t due to rain and wind, however I was still able to explore a bit. Finnair operates a bunch of flights to… Read More

Reasons Why I Love Lufthansa Miles & More

Lufthansa’s Miles & More frequent flyer programme is Europe’s leading airline programme due to the numerous benefits that are provided to members. When comparing Miles & More to other (big) European programmes, Miles & More definitely comes out on top. Miles & More is the frequent flyer programme of Lufthansa, Austrian, Brussels Airlines, SWISS, LOT, etc. Earning miles is easy thanks to a number of… Read More

Alaska Mileage Plan Will Go Revenue-Based Eventually

Alaska’s Mileage Plan is one of my favourite frequent flyer programmes due to their unique partnerships with mostly oneworld airlines. My favourite ways to redeem Alaska miles include Cathay Pacific First and Business Class, Qantas First Class, JAL First and Business Class, Finnair Business Class, and Aer Lingus Economy Class around Europe. The one major restriction with Mileage Plan is that you cannot book every… Read More

Fantastic Asiana Club Redemption Rates

Non-U.S. frequent flyer programmes are the ones where you can extract the most value from your miles. The days of U.S. programmes being the most valuable are long over due to their revenue-based approach and constant devaluations. My favourite Star Alliance frequent flyer programmes include those of Aegean Airlines, Asiana Airlines, Lufthansa, Turkish Airlines, and Singapore Airlines. Each of those programmes have some fantastic redemption… Read More

Lufthansa/SWISS First Class For ~$2,500

Ah, Lufthansa First Class… there’s no better way to fly. Remember when it used to cost over $10,000? Yeah, those days are mostly over. In fact, this is the general trend we have been seeing in the industry – Economy Class is insanely cheap nowadays, Business Class can essentially be purchased for what Economy used to cost… and well, First can be found for less… Read More

Revenue-Based American Airlines AAdvantage On The Horizon

The times of frequent flyer programmes actually being valuable for those who love to maximise their miles is rapidly approaching an end. Led by Delta Air Lines, the revenue-based frequent flyer programme is the future. No more award charts, no more custom routings, revenue-based earning and redeeming, and the list goes on and on.The next loyalty programme to become revenue-based is almost certainly going to… Read More

LOT Polish Airlines re-launches Kraków – New York JFK

LOT Polish Airlines announced today the re-launch of their route from Kraków to New York JFK. This route previously operated way back in the days (think 2003), but was cancelled due to a number of reasons including low demand. The situation was the same with the Kraków – Chicago route, which was also cancelled, and re-launched a few years ago. The Kraków to New York… Read More
