Travel: My Entire Life, My Everything

When the new year of 2020 came about a few months ago, many of us were filled with joy, hope, and optimism. Many of us had life changing plans which we were to act upon this year and perhaps even modify our lives drastically. I was one of those – filled with new plans and dreams for a new year ahead with new possibilities and… Read More

New oneworld Member: Alaska Airlines

My gosh… I never thought this day would come… but it finally has. Alaska Airlines shocked the frequent flyer community a few days ago when they announced their intention to (finally) join the oneworld alliance in Summer of 2021. Furthermore, Alaska is teaming up with American Airlines to create an International West Coast Alliance; the two airlines were set to basically divorce at the end… Read More

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

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

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

Fantastic Qatar Airways Business Class Fares

Qatar Airways features one of the world’s best Business Class on a variety of aircraft, however, their signature Qsuite is their revolutionary Business Class product which they describe as “First Class in Business Class“. The Qsuite can be found on their flights from Doha to select destinations including: Asia and South Pacific: Bangkok Bangalore Hong Kong Maldives Mumbai Shanghai Sydney Singapore Beijing Tokyo Canberra Adelaide… 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
