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

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

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

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

Lufthansa’s New Munich – Seattle Flight

Lufthansa German Airlines announced last month their plans to fly nonstop from Munich to Seattle starting next summer. The airline already operates flights from Frankfurt to Seattle, a very popular route (which doesn’t feature First Class anymore). Lufthansa has recently been expanding their route network and announced a number of new routes and changes not only for flights operated by Lufthansa but also those by… Read More

Lufthansa First Class 2019 Routes

Lufthansa First Class is the world’s best way to fly as far as I’m concerned. I’ve flown the product on every single type of long-haul aircraft Lufthansa operates and I’ve easily flown LH F over 50 times (if not more). Lufthansa used to feature First Class on all of their long-haul aircraft, but the airline removed F seats from half of their long-haul fleet and… Read More

LOT Polish Airlines: More Destinations From Kraków

LOT Polish Airlines, a Star Alliance member, is an interesting airline… from their interesting shady policies and procedures to their corrupt Rzeszów to Newark flight, the airline is a mixture of both good and bad.  While LOT doesn’t have the best Business Class product, I consider LOT’s Premium Economy to be the best in Europe – certainly much better than Lufthansa/Austrian’s or British Airways’. LOT frequently… Read More

Singapore KrisFlyer Reinstates My (Illegally) Cancelled Ticket

It certainly has been a few interesting days with the Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer call centre. I posted about how Singapore Airlines illegally cancelled my ticket because they claimed they cannot book Airbus aircraft on Alaska Airlines flights (essentially old Virgin America aircraft). How they determined this ridiculous rule is beyond me, but the fact that they actively found out that my ticket was issued and later… Read More

What’s great about this deal is that most flights seem to book into Business “Z”… Read More
