Japan Airlines First Class Tokyo - San Francisco Introduction This will be a shorter flight review than normal, mainly because I flew the same Japan Airlines first class from San Francisco to Tokyo where I went into greater detail on the hard product. On this flight, I want to focus more on the service, which was great, and the catering, [...]

American Express Offer In Vancouver Introduction American Express routinely offers special invites for cardmembers to a variety of events, though I find the lucrative deals are normally targeted for American consumers. When we do see offers in Canada, they're usually underwhelming, and I've actually never taken advantage of one. Today I received an email for an American Express Offer in [...]

Review: Fairmont Chateau Whistler Gold Floor Lounge

2018-05-14T14:29:42+00:00 May 14th, 2018|Fairmont, Hotels, Trip Reports|

Fairmont Chateau Whistler Gold Floor Lounge Introduction As mentioned previously, I decided to publish this stay in a series of posts, rather than just one large one. I'm doing this for a couple of reasons, but mainly because I felt there was just too much to talk about for one review, including the new Pampered Pooch pet program, resort dining [...]

2018-05-13T10:02:03+00:00 May 13th, 2018|Fairmont, Hotels, Trip Reports|

Fairmont Chateau Whistler Gold Floor King Room Introduction For this hotel stay I'm doing the review a little bit different, as I explained in an introductory post with all of the highlights. Rather than having one (really) long review covering all aspects, I'm breaking them into four smaller reviews, including this post of the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Gold Floor King [...]

Review: CIBC Air Canada AC Conversion Card Prepaid Visa

2018-05-11T16:44:58+00:00 May 11th, 2018|Credit Cards, Reviews|

Air Canada AC Conversion Card Introduction I don't like bank fees. Actually, I loathe bank fees. As a frequent traveler, I'm quite familiar with all of the extra costs associated with spending money in a foreign currency, with the dreaded foreign exchange fee at the top of my 'most hated' list. The foreign exchange fee (or FX fee), is a percentage added [...]

Japan Airlines First Class Lounge Tokyo Haneda Introduction My flight from Singapore on Japan Airlines in business class arrived at 5:15am, which would give me a full day to enjoy the Japan Airlines first class lounge Tokyo Haneda. I had timed this flight strategically to have a day in Tokyo, though due to work commitments and lack of sleep, I [...]

Review: Japan Airlines Boeing 777 Business Class, Singapore – Tokyo

2018-05-09T13:43:04+00:00 May 9th, 2018|Airlines, Japan Airlines, Trip Reports|

Japan Airlines Boeing 777 Business Class Introduction I'll be honest - I didn't even realize Japan Airlines had a business class configuration with reverse herringbone seats. I knew they had the Apex Suite, since I flew it on their 787 from Delhi to Tokyo on my crazy 11-day trip around the world, and I assumed they would operate some sort [...]

Fairmont Chateau Whistler Gold Floor Experience Introduction Brad and I were looking to get away for a weekend to celebrate our anniversary a bit early and decided on Whistler, mainly because the weather looked great, but also because we had a boatload of certificates to use since we both qualified as Platinum in the Fairmont President's Club. While up until [...]
