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. All… Read More

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 Adds Tokyo Haneda Flights

Finnair, a member of oneworld, has just announced their plans to fly to Tokyo’s Haneda airport. The airline currently operates up to twice daily flights to Tokyo Narita, in addition to some other destinations in Japan such as Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, and Sapporo. 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

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

Reflections on Living in Australia

Hi. Remember me? It’s Dominik. Yes, I know it has been a while and lots of things have changed. I’m here now and am trying to gradually get back into this blogging thing that I loved so much during my teenage years. Many things have changed over the past two years and while I thought I had everything planned out perfectly during my university years,… 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

My Favourite Travel Apps

Phone applications have changed everything – gone are the days of visiting a website to actually do something, am I right? In most cases, you can use a phone app to do just about anything – from booking a flight to buying a house to getting a date (ok, that last one has never worked for me). I can’t remember the last time I actually… 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

When Do 24 Hour Layovers Make Sense?

I love layovers of under 24 hours on a single ticket – they allow me to explore a new city for a day or just catch up with friends for dinner in a city I’ve visited countless times. A day on the beach? Not a problem. I am of course referring to layovers of up to 24 hours on a single ticket. Say I’m flying… Read More

Seattle’s Incredible Flight Expansion

For a number of years, international flights to Seattle were limited. There was no sign of expansion and for a long time, the airlines operating flights to the city remained the same, and few routes were introduced. However, that all changed a few years ago as Seattle became the fastest-growing city on the west coast, and arguably the new technology centre of America. The “revolution”… Read More

Cathay Pacific’s Hong Kong – Seattle Flight

In 2018, Cathay Pacific announced it will begin flying to Seattle 4 times a week, beginning in Spring 2019. The nonstop flight from Hong Kong to Seattle will be operated with an Airbus A350-900 featuring Business Class, Premium Economy Class, and Economy Class. Seattle will be Cathay Pacific’s 8th gateway in the United States and 10th in North America. The first flight from Hong Kong… 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
