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

ACT FAST: $1500 Business Class to Australia Round-Trip!

Air New Zealand is having an incredible sale or error fare from Chicago to Australia in Business Class for $1,500 USD round-trip. It looks like the deal works until the end of the year and you can find availability using Google Flights and then proceed to book your desired itinerary. What’s great about this deal is that most flights seem to book into Business “Z”… Read More

My 2019 Flight Plan: First and Business Class

Happy 2019! The first day of the year is almost over for me and I spent today writing down and thinking about the places I’d like to visit this year and the airlines I want to fly. My first big trip of the year will involve the Middle East and South Pacific sometime in late January or February. While I currently have the Etihad First… Read More

Did Singapore Airlines Just Illegally Cancel My Ticket?

Singapore Airlines may have an incredible First and Business Class product with fantastic ground staff and flight attendants. However, when it comes to their call centre for general reservations and their mileage programme, KrisFlyer, the same can’t be said. Seriously, I’m not joking – even United agents are more competent than KrisFlyer agents. The problem with SQ phone agents is that they consistently: quote the wrong amount… Read More

Why I Love Miles & More

In my eyes, Lufthansa is the world’s best airline with the world’s best First Class product. No other airline comes close to the consistent and phenomenal First Class experience that Lufthansa offers. Naturally, since I’m loyal to the Lufthansa Group, it only makes sense to be loyal to Miles & More – the combined frequent flyer programme of the Lufthansa Group and several other European… Read More

Lufthansa Lounge Access with AMEX Platinum Card

The American Express Platinum Card is widely considered “the” premium travel credit card, as it was the first to include lounge access, airline credit, premium concierge service, and more. In the past few years, many banks have created their own premium travel credit card which features lounge access, airline credits, point transfers to airlines, etc. and AMEX has been enhancing the Platinum Card more and… Read More

Aeroplan Blocking LOT Polish Airlines… Again

Look, Aeroplan, I love you but I am really starting to see why Air Canada is leaving you in 2020. Your constant airline blocking, more rude call centre agents, and refusing to waive phone booking fees (especially when your website doesn’t work) is insane and not how a frequent flyer programme should operate… so AC is tired of you… loyal AC flyers are also tired… Read More

Passengers travelling to North America on Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian, and Brussels Airlines will have the option to purchase an Economy Light fare which does not allow any changes or cancellations and only includes 8kg of free hand baggage with NO checked in baggage free of… Read More
