Review: Cathay Pacific Lounge Singapore Changi

I was flying from Singapore to Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific shortly after 8PM, so my goal was to check out both the Cathay Pacific Lounge and Qantas Lounge. Since the Qantas Lounge opens at 2:30PM, my initial plan was to go there first and then later…

Jewel Singapore Changi – 6

Review: The Jewel Changi Airport

As a kid I used to love going to malls. I'm not sure why, exactly, because I've never been into shopping. Over the years my desire to visit malls changed, and at this point I think the only time I visit malls is when I'm in parts of the Middle East/Asia,…

Changi Lounge Jewel – 9

Review: Changi Lounge At The Jewel Singapore

Welcome to a review of what's possibly one of the most beautiful Priority Pass lounges I've been to, but also by far the most pointless. This is a lounge that's inside a mall that's within an airport. A couple of installments from now I'll be reviewing…

British Airways Arrivals Lounge – 27

Review: British Airways Arrivals Lounge Heathrow Airport

I had quite a long layover at Heathrow Airport, so my first order of business was to check out the British Airways Arrivals Lounge, which I had never visited before. Arrivals lounges can be useful for early arrivals, and that's probably true at Heathrow…

Salon Icare Paris Orly Airport – 11

Review: Icare Lounge Paris Orly Airport

I got to Paris Orly Airport at around 12PM, plenty early for my 2:30PM La Compagnie flight to Newark. I initially struggled to find La Compagnie's check-in counter. Orly Airport has four check-in "sections" (I don't think they're actually necessarily…

Air France Arrivals Lounge Paris – 7

Review: Air France Arrivals Lounge Paris CDG

I arrived at Paris Charles de Gaulle around 8AM, and I had a flight out of Paris Orly at 2:30PM. My first stop was the Air France Arrivals Lounge, both to get a shower, and also to get some work done. This isn't Air France's fault, but I despise Charles…

Plaza Premium Lounge Toronto – 6

Review: Plaza Premium Lounge Toronto Airport

While I spent most of my long layover in Toronto at the Air France-KLM Lounge (I'm not actually sure why), I did briefly stop by the Plaza Premium Lounge located right across the hall, as I figured I might as well review it. Plaza Premium actually has…

The first segment of my trip was on Air France's brand new A350-900 from Toronto to Paris. While the flight was only departing at 6:45PM, I ended up getting to Toronto Pearson Airport before 12PM, as I wanted to make sure I didn't miss my connection,…

Turkish Airlines Lounge Miami – 12

Review: Turkish Airlines Lounge Miami Airport

Last week Turkish Airlines opened a lounge in Miami, making it only their fifth lounge outside of Turkey (complementing their lounges in Bangkok, Moscow, Nairobi, and Washington). This is exciting because it's a Priority Pass lounge, making it the only…
