Review: Air France 777 First Class

I'll keep this review relatively short, and will focus on what made this flight unique. I was more detailed in my review of the New York to Paris flight a couple of days prior. Then there's my most detailed Air France first class review ever, which was…

Air France La Premiere – 2

Review: Air France La Premiere 777-300ER

I last reviewed Air France La Premiere on a flight a couple of years ago from Paris to Houston. I say that up front because that review was much more detailed than I'll make this one in terms of the hard product, while this review will mostly be focused…

Delta 737 First Class – 3

Review: Delta Air Lines 737 First Class

To finish off the trip, Ford and I flew to Tampa, both so we could see my mom, and also so we could pick up Winston, because he had spent the past couple of weeks hanging out with her. Any flight where Winston is waiting on the other end feels as long…

British Airways Club Europe A320 – 7

Review: British Airways A320 Business Class

To return from Mykonos to the US we decided to fly British Airways, given what a convenient routing they had available. Getting from Mykonos to the US same day without leaving at the crack of dawn is a challenge. Furthermore, it's great to be able to…

Easyjet – 6

My EasyJet Flight Cost How Much?!?

I had an incredible review trip trying all kinds of amazing business class products. Suffice to say that this portion of the trip ended on a low note. I actually reviewed EasyJet last year as I flew them between Milan and Santorini, though this time…

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…

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…
