Introduction My United Airlines flight from Vancouver arrived in San Francisco shortly after 8am, giving me a whopping 7 hours or so to take in all the Japan Airlines Sakura Lounge San Francisco had to offer. Unfortunately (or fortunately), the lounge doesn't open until the afternoon, and I still needed to get my boarding pass, which meant I would need [...]

Star Alliance First Class Lounge Los Angeles Airport Introduction Airport lounges in North America can be a but underwhelming, with many of them lacking the service and amenities found internationally.

My flight from San Francisco landed well ahead of schedule at 1:30pm, and it was only a few minutes to get through transit security with no lineup whatsoever. I've transited Tokyo Narita several times and always enjoy the experience. I find the airport extremely efficient, with good signage and friendly staff! Best of all, I had access to the ANA [...]
