Introduction: A Week Above The Atlantic

Filed Under: Travel

I just wrapped up my last trip report, and now it’s time to get started with the next one! Unfortunately this trip doesn’t involve road tripping with Tiffany through Transylvania, but rather this is intended to just be a really efficient review trip, ahead of a more relaxing California vacation soon.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be traveling almost nonstop, so I want to do everything I can to stay up to date on trip reports. As a result, you’ll be getting this trip report as close to live as possible. I’m sitting at my departure airport as I write this post, and this week I’ll be taking four transatlantic flights. These are all on airlines I’ve flown before, but on products I haven’t flown before.

Since I’m posting this as close to live as possible, I’ll share how I booked each flight with each individual review, though three of the four long haul flights were booked with miles (and one was a heavily discounted business class ticket).

I’m guessing most of you can probably guess the airlines I’ll be flying, based on the airlines I promised to review before the end of the year.

Thanks for reading, sit back, relax, and enjoy the reviews!

  1. The picture pretty clearly looks like an Air France plane from the red mark on the left side of the fuselage. And the curved wings pretty clearly look like the A350, soooo it looks like you are going YYZ-CDG on the AF A350-900, based on your last post about these review flights.

  2. I wonder for trips like this, do you plan the whole trip and make sure every segment is available (and with backups) before you book everything together, or do you book segment by segment, and then adjust (or readjust where necessary)?

  3. +1 to what BluePanda asks.

    I know its usually easier to piece a trip together, but am curious as to the process you use to put this all together.
