Dublin Airport Platinum Services – 32

Review: Platinum Services Dublin Airport

Last year I wrote about Dublin Airport's VIP service, known as Platinum Services. With a few hours to kill before my connecting flight, I figured it was worth checking this out for a different kind of "lounge" review. After all, many of you expressed…

Our flight from Chicago arrived at 2:10PM, and our connecting flight to Nagoya was at 5:05PM, so we had just under three hours. Immigration was super efficient. I find that Narita has really inconsistent wait times, though we were the only flight arriving…

Review: Delta Sky Club Santiago

I'm going to do things a little bit in reverse here, and start with the bottom line: This is the worst Sky Club that I've ever been to. Okay, with that out of the way, here is some background as to how we got there. We landed in Santiago from Punta Arenas…
