Cathay Pacific Airbus A350 Business Class Review, Vancouver to Hong Kong

July 31st, 2017|Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Reviews|

Introduction: Cathay Pacific continues to be one of my favourite airlines for their generous award availability, consistent premium class products, and fantastic route network to Asia from the west coast. I tried their first class product from Los Angeles to Hong Kong and business class from Hong Kong to Delhi on my crazy 11-day trip around the world earlier this [...]

Review: ANA All Nippon Airways Boeing 777 First Class San Francisco – Tokyo

June 5th, 2017|Airlines, ANA, Reviews|

Introduction: You always remember your first... This was our debut international first class flight, and second flight on a trip around the world that included stops in San Francisco, Kuala Lumpur, Bali, Singapore, Munich and Denver. I originally hadn't planned to write a review for any of this trip (we took it in summer, 2016) as a lot of the photos are [...]

Review: United Airlines Polaris First Class Boeing 767 Paris – Chicago

May 24th, 2017|Airlines, Reviews, United Airlines|

Introduction: I don't think United Polaris First class is on anybody's bucket list, including mine. Furthermore, United is in the process of eliminating first class on all long-haul flights, and the following information will be obsolete in the near future. Unfortunately when I booked my 11-day trip around the world, United was the only option crossing the Atlantic ocean without [...]

Review: Singapore Airlines Business Class A330 Singapore – Bangkok

March 22nd, 2017|Airlines, Reviews, Singapore Airlines|

Introduction: My flight from Jakarta on Singapore Airlines in first class arrived just after 5:00pm, which gave me just over 90 minutes before my departure to Bangkok. An epic thunderstorm rolled in just after we touched down so I spent the first 15 minutes at Changi Airport gazing out the windows at the torrential downpour. I was excited to try two [...]

Review: Japan Airlines First Class 777-300ER Tokyo – Jakarta

March 8th, 2017|Airlines, Japan Airlines, Reviews|

Introduction: My flight from Tokyo to Jakarta was about the midpoint of a crazy 11-day trip around the world and I was seriously starting to question my sanity when booking this itinerary. What had started as a quick trip to Hong Kong to try out Cathay Pacific's fantastic first class product had turned into a whirlwind trip covering more than 50,000 [...]

Review: Japan Airlines Business Class 787-9 New Delhi – Tokyo

March 1st, 2017|Airlines, Japan Airlines, Reviews|

Introduction: The next stop on my 11-day trip around the world was Jakarta, so naturally, as an avgeek, I chose to route through Tokyo instead of flying direct in order to sample two of Japan Airlines premium products - The Skysuite business class on the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner from Delhi to Tokyo and the first class Skysuite on the Boeing [...]

Review: Cathay Pacific Business Class A330 Hong Kong – New Delhi

February 20th, 2017|Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Reviews|

Introduction: I checked out of the Marriott SkyCity Hong Kong Hotel at 4:00pm and managed to catch the airport shuttle leaving on the hour (shuttle service runs every 30 minutes). As a Marriott Gold Elite, I was entitled to the same private car transfer as when I arrived in Hong Kong, but the shuttle was no less convenient. I personally prefer [...]

Review: Cathay Pacific First Class 777-300ER Los Angeles – Hong Kong

February 14th, 2017|Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Reviews|

Introduction: This was my first time flying Cathay Pacific first class, and the anticipation was almost unbearable! I had read many trip reports and reviews and had a good idea of what to expect. Speaking of expectations; mine were high, as Cathay Pacific is largely considered one of the best first class products in the sky, with a great hard [...]
