Air Tahiti Nui Business Class Review CDG-LAX

Air Tahiti Nui Business Class Bottom Line Air Tahiti Nui provides a unique experience crossing the Atlantic. The airline’s warm crews, solid food and Tahitian pride make this flight a real treat. The Good: Warm crews that exude passion for their job and pride for Tahiti. A well stocked amenity kit and solid food offerings round it up.  The Bad: Award availability can be spotty. 2x2x2 business class is not my favorite configuration. The seats can feel narrow when in lie flat mode.  The Noteworthy: I can’t say enough nice things about this crew. They were warm, attentive, proactive...

Atlanta SkyClub Terminal F Review Delta Airlines

Atlanta SkyClub Terminal F Review Bottom Line  As far as regular business lounges in the US go, the Atlanta SkyClub Terminal F is one of the best. With the amount of space, nice shower suites and terrace, it’s pretty hard to beat! The Good: An amazing terrace with tarmac views! The Bad: This is the equivalent to an Admirals or United Club. It can’t compete with the Flagship or Polaris Lounges from Delta’s competitors.  The Noteworthy: There are nap rooms. When I was there, they were taken and as soon as one opened up, it was grabbed by someone...

Cathay Pacific Kuala Lumpur Lounge Review

Cathay Pacific Kuala Lumpur Lounge Bottom Line Cathay Pacific’s small lounge at KUL seems like an unnecessary space. The much larger, and much better, Malaysia Airlines lounge would be a better option for the Hong Kong-based carrier to contract out.  The Good: Nice tarmac views. The Bad: Nothing was bad, per se, but it was just a small and simple lounge.  The Noteworthy: Sadly, nothing was noteworthy.   Lounge Entrance The lounge is located in one of the spurs of Kuala Lumpur International Airport’s international terminal. It is labeled from the outside as the Cathay Pacific Lounge, for OneWorld...

Lufthansa A340 Business Class Review

Lufthansa A340 Business Class Review Bottom Line Lufthansa has one of the absolute worst business class seats I have ever sat on. It was so bad, that I left the plane with a sore shoulder from sleeping, and an aggravated injury in my back after trying to lounge on the chair for 7 hours. The crew was very kind and polished. The food was average, at best. I would rather fly in their more comfortable premium economy on a short flight, than fly on this seat again.  The Good: Lufthansa crew is very professional. They were on top of...

Qantas Lounge Tokyo Narita Review

Qantas Lounge Tokyo Narita Bottom Line As a quieter alternative to the JAL lounges at Tokyo Narita, the Qantas Lounge offers all the basic amenities, plus tons of power outlets, better views of the tarmac and more quiet.  The Good: Lounge was well stocked with power outlets and it was much less crowded than the JAL lounges.  The Bad: The food selection is very limited, but it is good enough for an early morning departure.  The Noteworthy: There are sweeping views of the apron, where you can see departing aircraft as well as other aircraft that are parked at...

Oman Air 737 Business Class Review Colombo to Muscat

Oman Air 737 Business Class Bottom Line Oman Air is a hidden gem. Although not as well known as Emirates, nor as posh as Qatar Airways, Oman Air is truly a world class airline. My two experiences with them, this being my first, were stellar. The airline offers high quality food, new seats and ample entertainment. My only qualm was the lack of wifi on this short-ish flight. I cannot recommend them enough. The Good: 2 year old plane, with their newer business class seats. Food was top notch, it had more of a Sri Lankan flair than Sri...

American Airlines 787 Business Class LAX Tokyo Review

American Airlines 787 Business Class LAX Tokyo Bottom Line I was pleasantly surprised by American Airlines 787 Business Class service to Tokyo from Los Angeles. The schedule was optimal for me, the chance to upgrade to Business using a Systemwide Upgrade was a plus, and the food was on the better side of what I have had on AA.  The Good: American’s schedule to NRT was very convenient. The crew was very kind and attentive. We arrived early (which actually surprised me) and the seat is wider than what you would get on other carriers (such as Delta or...

Korean Air A380 First Class Review Sydney to Seoul

Korean Air A380 First Class Overview Korean Air offers a solid First Class product. Not one of the best in the world, but the A380 First class makes the world of difference compared to Korean’s business class. Polished FAs, wide seat and an onboard bar make the experience really cool. The Good: The seat on Korean Air’s A380 First class is really wide. Flight attendants were some of the most polite I have encountered, although there were some language barriers.  The Bad: Korean Air keeps their cabins extremely warm. I was sweating after sleeping for about an hour. The...

Sri Lankan A330 Business Class Review Tokyo – Colombo

Sri Lankan A330 Business Class Bottom Line Sri Lankan has a lot of room to grow. The flight was truly disappointing, as the service standard did not hold up to my previous flight with the airline on a regional route. They have a solid hard product, but the soft product was severely lacking. The Good: Reverse herringbone seats are good, but these were a bit on the narrow side. I recommend the window seats for both window and aisle access. The Bad: Service was non-existent. Besides meal times, I did not see a single flight attendant walk by except...

American Airlines Premium Economy Review Miami Madrid

American Airliners Premium Economy in a Nutshell American’s Premium Economy on a transAtlantic flight is good. I don’t think it is at the level with other European airlines, but it is certainly a step up from economy. I was upgraded at check in from economy, and I can say that if this becomes a perk of being Executive Platinum, it would make American a lot more lucrative for elite fliers.  The Good: Seat is wider than first class. Good pillow and blanket. You get a smaller amenity kit than the business class one, but it still has all the...
