2018-08-15T17:04:45+00:00 August 10th, 2018|Air Canada, Airlines, News, Reviews|

Air Canada Signature Service Business Class Introduction I booked our flights for our European Family Vacation on Points on New Year's Eve last year. This was going to be our first time flying our national carrier in business class and we were excited to try them out. We got even more excited when we found out that Air Canada had [...]

Flight Review: EVA Air A330 Business Class From Taipei To Jakarta

2018-06-21T12:13:59+00:00 June 21st, 2018|Airlines, EVA Air, Trip Reports|

EVA Air A330 Business Class Introduction My EVA business class flight from Vancouver arrived just before 6am, which meant I had just over 2.5 hours to wait until boarding for my onward flight to Jakarta (featuring the new EVA Air A330 business class product). I've transited Taipei before, and really dislike the lounge. I don't think the food is very [...]

Japan Airlines First Class, Boeing 777-300ER, Tokyo (HND) – San Francisco (SFO)

2018-05-17T14:33:48+00:00 May 17th, 2018|Airlines, Japan Airlines, Trip Reports|

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, [...]

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 [...]

Booked! Japan Airlines First Class To Singapore

2018-05-15T07:51:18+00:00 April 5th, 2018|Airlines, Japan Airlines, News, Trip Reports|

Japan Airlines First Class To Singapore Introduction We recently returned from a trip to Maui where I was able to redeem 360,000 Marriott Reward points for a hotel+air package including a 7-night stay at the Marriott Wailea Beach Resort (full review coming soon - it was a bit disappointing), and 120,000 Alaska Airline miles. I didn't actually use the miles [...]

Review: Air China First Class, Beijing to Los Angeles

2018-05-17T13:10:48+00:00 March 9th, 2018|Air China, Airlines, Trip Reports|

Air China First Class Introduction Not too many people in the frequent flyer community intentionally look for Air China first class space when planning award travel, yet that's exactly what I set out to do when planning my trip to Beijing. Air China is kind of the black sheep of the Star Alliance family, but award availability is generally good [...]

Review: ANA Regional Business Class, Tokyo To Beijing

2018-02-27T11:57:32+00:00 February 27th, 2018|Airlines, ANA, Trip Reports|

ANA Regional Business Class Introduction I booked this trip to Beijing primarily around flying ANA first class from Los Angeles to Tokyo and Air China first class from Beijing to Los Angeles. As such, I needed a connecting flight from Tokyo, and decided to try yet another ANA regional business class product - the cradle type seat on the Boeing [...]

ANA First Class Review, Los Angeles To Tokyo

2018-02-23T13:47:39+00:00 February 23rd, 2018|Airlines, ANA, Trip Reports|

ANA First Class Introduction This product has a special place in my heart.... ANA first class was my introduction to the world of international first class travel years ago, and I was excited to try it again on this trip to Beijing! I booked the roundtrip first class flight using 210,000 Aeroplan miles, which I transferred from my American Express [...]
