Lao Airlines Review 5

Lao Airlines ATR 72 Hanoi To Luang Prabang

Our boarding gate was close to the lounge, and as we had checked our bags we were in no particular rush. I also suspected we'd be at a remote stand, so we did a bit of shopping on our way in hopes of avoiding lengthy bus queues. We arrived at the gate…

Japan Airlines Business Class 787 – 4

Review: Japan Airlines Business Class 787 Dallas To Tokyo

We had spent the night prior to our flight at the Grand Hyatt DFW, which is connected to the terminal. So we ended up only arriving at the airport shortly before boarding started. For what it's worth, Japan Airlines passengers have access to the American…

Japan Airlines First Class – 54

Review: Japan Airlines First Class 777 Tokyo To Chicago

Oh, Japan Airlines, how I love thee! At the door I was greeted by the cabin manager, cabin senior, and a trainee. The cabin senior and trainee escorted me to my seat. Japan Airlines' first class cabin consists of a total of eight seats, spread across…

Qantas Business Class 787 – 8

Review: Qantas Business Class 787 San Francisco To Melbourne

I had spent most of the day in the United Polaris Lounge prior to this flight (I had access because my flight from Tahiti landed the same morning). At around 6:30PM I headed from the G gates to the A gates in the International Terminal, which required…

United Polaris 787 – 38

Review: United Business Class 787-8 Papeete To San Francisco

Since Papeete Airport doesn't have any jet bridges, I boarded the 787 via stairs at the forward door. The crew seemed caught off guard that boarding began, and wasn't fully set up yet. This flight was operated by a Boeing 787-8, featuring 36 business…

Air Tahiti – 10

Review: Air Tahiti ATR 72 Economy Papeete To Bora Bora

This installment will cover our Air Tahiti flights between Papeete and Bora Bora. Note that Air Tahiti is the only airline operating inter-island flights in Tahiti, and they're also not associated with Air Tahiti Nui, which is rather annoying. As mentioned…

Air Tahiti Nui Business Class 787 – 4

Review: Air Tahiti Nui Business Class 787-9 Los Angeles To Papeete

We were connecting same day from American Airlines, and unfortunately our flight was delayed significantly. As a result, we sprinted to Tom Bradley International Terminal to make our flight (or so we thought at the time). As we were running towards TBIT…

Gulfstream Iv 24

Flying A Private Jet — The Flight Of My Life!

Yesterday I wrote about how I ended up on a 2.5 hour flight on a Gulfstream IV. I went from an ordinary Monday night, to less than 18 hours later finding myself on a 14 seat private jet. With that out of the way, here’s the story of the actual experience,…

Delta One

Review: Delta One 757 Washington DCA To Los Angeles

For a while I’ve been looking to try the only flight with a fully-flat bed out of DCA. Delta does a once-daily rotation between Washington Reagan National and Los Angeles on a 757-200, which offers a Delta One cabin in the front. (Several other domestic…

Norwegian Premium – 65

Review: Norwegian Premium 787-9 London To New York

I boarded through the second set of doors, where I was greeted by two very friendly flight attendants and pointed left into the premium economy cabin. Norwegian's 787-9 has a total of 56 premium economy seats, spread across eight rows in a 2-3-2 configuration.…

Rwandair Business Class A330 – 8

Review: RwandAir A330 Business Class Brussels To London

In the previous installment I reviewed RwandAir's business class from Kigali to Brussels, and I figured I should break off the next segment into a separate installment, given how long the previous review got. RwandAir's flight to London Gatwick operates…

Rwandair Business Class A330 – 1

Review: RwandAir Business Class A330 Kigali To Brussels

RwandAir's long haul service has been on my radar for a long time, so I couldn't wait to experience their business class on my flight to London via Brussels. I boarded through the second set of doors, and then turned left into the business class cabin.…

Review: RwandAir Business Class CRJ-900 Nairobi To Kigali

After doing some lounge hopping at Nairobi Airport, it was time to fly to Kigali. My flight was scheduled to depart at 3:15PM, and my boarding pass indicated that boarding was scheduled to start at 2:30PM. So I headed to the gate at around 2:20PM. My…

Aer Lingus Business Class A330 – 1

Review: Aer Lingus Business Class A330 Dublin To New York

The last time I flew Aer Lingus business class was back in 2012, so I was curious to see how the experience changed, especially given that Aer Lingus installed new business class seats a few years back. At door L2 I was greeted by Glenn, the cabin service…

Review: British Airways First Class 747 London To Nairobi

Club World London City – 2

Review: British Airways Business Class A318 New York To London City

I had taken this flight almost a decade ago when it first launched, and forgot just how damn special and cool it is. At the door I was greeted by the friendly cabin service manager, who pointed me towards my seat. British Airways' A318 has just 32 business…

Review: British Airways Club World 747 London To New York

My flight from Nairobi arrived at Terminal 3, while my connecting flight to New York was departing from Terminal 5. After a great flight my good luck continued, as my transit was seamless. I got on the connector bus between terminals, the bus wasn't…
