Review: Air Europa Business Class 737 London To Madrid

I got to Gatwick Airport at around 7:30AM, plenty early for my 9:55AM flight to Madrid. My flight on Air Europa was departing from Gatwick's South Terminal. The first stop at the airport was The Grain Store, which is the Priority Pass restaurant at the…

Westjet Business Class 787 – 4

Review: WestJet Business Class 787 Calgary To London

I love trying new products, so I was so excited when I boarded the WestJet 787! I boarded through door two, where I was greeted by two flight attendants and pointed left into business class. WestJet has a fairly premium-light configuration on their 787.…

Westjet Plus 737 – 2

Review: WestJet Plus 737 Denver To Calgary

Since I had flown in from Miami the same day and wanted to leave a buffer in Denver (given American's on-time performance) I had quite a long layover. I spent my time in the American Admirals Club getting caught up on work, and also walked around the…

Cambodia Angkor Air Review 12

Cambodia Angkor Air ATR 72 Siem Reap To Phnom Penh

There are a surprisingly large number of domestic carriers in Cambodia (though the majority are owned or at least subsidized by Chinese companies), and all have very tiny fleets. Most of these carriers operate a mix of aircraft, including some Airbus…

Srilankan Business Class A330 – 35

Review: SriLankan Airlines Business Class A330 Tokyo To Colombo

I had only ever flown SriLankan's A330-300 business class on the very short flight from Colombo to Male, so was looking forward to seeing how their long haul product compared. We boarded through the forward door, and turned right into the business class…

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…

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…

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…
