Flight Review: EVA Air (A330) Business Class – Taipei to Jakarta

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 [...]

Flight Review: Eva Air (777-300ER) Business Class – Vancouver to Taipei

EVA Air Business Class Vancouver To Taipei Introduction I've flown EVA Air business class on the Boeing 777 in the past from Taipei to Vancouver and Singapore to Taipei, and so has Brad from Los Angeles, and we both agree that it's one of the world's best overall business class products. While the seat is similar to what you might [...]

Flight Review: Japan Airlines (777-300ER) First Class – Tokyo to San Francisco

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, [...]

Flight Review: Japan Airlines (777) Business Class – Singapore to Tokyo

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 [...]

Flight Review: Japan Airlines (777) First Class – San Francisco to Tokyo

Japan Airlines Boeing 777 First Class Introduction It had been a couple of months since my last international trip and I had a bunch of Alaska Miles itching to be used since redeeming 360,000 Marriott Reward points on a Hotel+Air package for our spring break trip to Maui. I knew I wanted to fly the Japan Airlines Boeing 777 first [...]

Flight Review: Air China (777-300) First Class – Beijing to Los Angeles

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 [...]

Flight Review: ANA (767-300) Business Class – Tokyo To Beijing

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 [...]

Flight Review: ANA (777-300) First Class – Los Angeles To Tokyo

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 [...]

Flight Review: United Airlines (787-800) Business Class – Paris to Washington DC

United Airlines Boeing 787 Business Class Introduction When I started the planning process for this Aeroplan mini-round-the-world trip, my jumping off point was searching for the transatlantic segment first. Generally speaking, I find this the toughest part of the itinerary to coordinate, since transpacific flights are somewhat abundant from the west coast, whereas flights from Europe usually involve a connection [...]

Flight Review: Turkish Airlines (A321) Business Class – Istanbul To Paris

Turkish Airlines Airbus A321 Business Class Introduction When I originally planned this trip I was scheduled to fly to Paris from Istanbul on a Turkish Airlines Airbus A330, with similar seating the to disappointing 777 I flew from Jakarta. However, I was having such a nice time at The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, I decided to extend my stay and rearrange my flights. [...]
