Our spring trip to Europe this year ended in Spain so we decided to try Iberia’s Business Class on their direct flight from Madrid back to New York. Iberia Business Class Lounge Madrid: Business Class Lounges rarely have the over the top luxury that some Read More

Cathay Pacific Business Class 777 JFK -YVR

IMG_2442

We’ve previously reviewed both Cathay Pacific Business Class and Cathay Pacific First Class on longhaul flights onboard their 777 to/from Hong Kong and we usually don’t re-review products we’ve reviewed before but this flight is worth noting because it provides the only opportunity to fly Read More

Lufthansa Business Class 747 FRA-JFK

IMG_2197

On the way back from our spring trip to Europe this year we flew Lufthansa Business Class from Frankfurt to New York. In the past we have reviewed Lufthansa Business Class onboard their A330 and Lufthansa First Class onboard their A340 so this will just Read More

QANTAS First Class A380 LHR-DXB-MEL

IMG_1569

At over 10,000 miles, the flight from London to Australia is easily the longest flight we have ever flown. So long, in fact, that in order to complete the journey there is a scheduled refueling stop in Dubai enroute. Luckily for us, we were able Read More

Etihad First Class Apartments A380 AUH – LHR

IMG_1443

Etihad’s First Class Apartments are ridiculous. Like, so ridiculously nice they make Cathay Pacific First Class look like a Greyhound Bus.   Our flight in the Apartments was the middle of three segments we booked from Mumbai to Madeira with overnight stopovers in both Abu Read More

Etihad Pearl Business Class A380 JFK-AUH

IMG_1173

When Etihad introduced their A380′s last year most of the focus was on their revolutionary First Class Apartments which are easily the nicest First Class seats in the world. Like many others, we’re excited about the Apartment flight we have coming up, and with all the Read More

Air Berlin Business Class A330 DUS-JFK

IMG_0821

We recently flew Air Berlin’s new(ish) Business Class product home to New York from Dusseldorf, Germany and we were generally impressed. Air Berlin has long been regarded as a budget airline but in the last few years has installed a high quality Business Class product Read More

Etihad Diamond First Class 777 JFK-AUH

IMG_0392

We’ve had a few amazing First Class experiences in the past few months (Cathay, Thai, & Lufthansa to name a few) so Etihad Airways really had their work cut out for them when it came to impressing us.  Etihad offers door to door service in Read More

Cathay Pacific Business Class 777 HKG-JFK

IMG_9564

On our way home from Asia we again had the option of flying Cathay Pacific First Class with a connection in Los Angeles or Cathay Business Class direct to New York.  Since we already experienced Cathay Pacific First Class on our outbound flight we opted Read More

Cathay Pacific First Class 777 LAX-HKG

IMG_7814

Last month we had the pleasure of flying both Thai Airways and Lufthansa’s New First Class products and were really looking forward to seeing how Cathay Pacific’s First Class stacked up.  The first thing we noticed when we boarded the Boeing 777 in Los Angeles Read More

Lufthansa First Class A340 MUC-EWR

IMG_7743

Flying Lufthansa First Class has been my lifelong dream (for the past 3 months) so in order to get both Dhara and myself into their First Class Cabin I did something that I’m not very proud of – I booked our flight to New Jersey. Read More

Thai Royal First Class 747 BKK-MUC

IMG_7679

After being escorted from the Thai Royal First Class Lounge we were welcomed into the nose of the 747 and delighted to see that our plane had the newer version of Thai’s First Class product.  On some Thai routes (ours included) you can never tell Read More

Food Poisoning and Awful Seats on Singapore Airlines Business Class AKL-SIN & SIN-HND

IMG_7079

This trip report coves both legs of our flight from Auckland to Tokyo via Singapore on Singapore Airlines.  We flew this route back on October 1st, but I became violently ill with food poisoning on the second leg due to food I was served by Read More

LAN Business Class A340 SYD-AKL

IMG_6993

LAN operates a once daily flight between Sydney, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand which later continues on to Santiago, Chile.  Usually, an airline is not allowed to operate a flight unless either the origin or the destination is within their home country, but something known Read More

QANTAS Business Class 747 JNB-SYD

IMG_6961

Boeing’s 747 with its iconic hump on the front of the upper deck is probably the most recognizable aircraft on the planet.  Entering service in the 1970′s these Jumbo Jets transformed commercial aviation as they were more than double the size and had a much Read More

Ethiopian Airlines Cloud Nine (Business Class) 772 ADD-JNB

IMG_6842

This was the longest and most interesting of the three flights we needed to take in order to get from Kilimanjaro, Tanzania to Cape Town, South Africa.  We departed from Addis Ababa (the Capital of Ethiopia and the main hub for Ethiopian Airlines) so we Read More

Lufthansa Business Class ATH-MUC & TAP Business Class MUC-LIS

IMG_5385 - Edited

Using miles to book short Business Class flights within Europe is usually a terrible value because “European” Business Class Seats are simply regular Economy Seats with the middle seats left unoccupied.  However, flying Business Class also enables you to access the Business Class Lounge before Read More

American Airlines Flagship First Class 777-300er JFK-LHR

IMG_4849

Flagship First Check-In One of my favorite aspects of flying First Class is that your vacation essentially starts in the departure lounge, rather than on arrival at your destination.  Well, at select airports American has decided to start your vacation even earlier with their new Read More

American A321 Flagship First Class LAX-JFK

IMG_4840

As I mentioned in a previous post (United’s BusinessFirst Transcontinental Service) the competition is really heating up on the cross-country routes between New York and California.  The newest service between NY and CA began in January when American Airlines started replacing their old 767′s with their Read More

United BusinessFirst JFK-SFO

IMG_4632

Over the past year premium service between New York and California (LAX & SFO) has been an area where competition is heating up between the major airlines.  Less than a year ago neither United nor American offered a true lie-flat bed on these routes, but Read More
