Review: United 787-10 Polaris Business Class

After flying from Hartford to Dublin on Aer Lingus and then from Porto to Newark on TAP Air Portugal, I spent a night at the Marriott Newark Airport. I've reviewed the hotel before, so won't be doing so again. The next evening it was off to Brussels…

Review: TAP Air Portugal A321LR Business Class

I arrived from Lisbon at 5:15PM, and my connecting flight to Newark was at 6:05PM. I rushed to get to the connecting flight, since I was still hoping to be among the first onboard to get cabin pictures. I was surprised by just how much time it took to…

Ana Business Class 737 – 5

Review: ANA Premium Class 737 Tokyo To Nagoya

When we pulled up to the remote stand we proceeded up the stairs to the forward left door of the aircraft. ANA's 737-800s have an odd configuration. There are a total of eight business class seats, spread across four rows in a 2-2 configuration. While…

Air Europa Business Class 787 – 9

Review: Air Europa Business Class 787 Madrid To Miami

My layover in Madrid was only about two hours. Madrid is a deceivingly massive airport, and a great place to connect if you're looking to meet your daily quota for steps in one layover. To be honest I actually have no clue what gate we arrived at, though…

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.…

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…

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…
