Review: Plaza Premium Lounge (International Terminal) – Vancouver Airport

Plaza Premium Lounge Vancouver Airport Introduction I'll get it out of the way - contract lounges kind of suck. Sure, they're better than waiting at the gate (most of the time), but compared to flagship airline lounges, such as the Lufthansa First Class Terminal in Frankfurt or the Japan Airlines First Class Lounge in Tokyo, these contract spaces feel more [...]

Review: Japan Airlines First Class Lounge – Tokyo Haneda Airport

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: British Airways Business Class Lounge – Singapore Changi Airport

British Airways Business Class Lounge Singapore Changi Introduction I checked out of the JW Marriott South Beach Hotel at around 4pm and took a 25 minute taxi to the airport. My flight wasn't until 9:50pm, but I love Singapore Changi Airport, and knew I wouldn't have a hard time spending 5 hours there prior to my flight. Japan Airlines is [...]

Review: Japan Airlines Sakura Lounge – San Francisco Airport

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 [...]

Review: Air China First Class Lounge – Beijing Capital Airport

Air China First Class Lounge Review I checked out of the JW Marriott Beijing at around 11am and got a taxi to the airport, which took about 45 minutes. I had heard stories of immigration and security taking a long time, with no fast track lanes for premium cabin passengers. Check-in was quick, and I was through passport control and [...]

Review: Star Alliance First Class Lounge – Los Angeles Airport

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. There are some exceptions though, such as the Qantas First Class Lounge at LAX, and the Cathay Pacific Lounge in Vancouver. This was my first time flying in first class [...]

Review: American Express Centurion Lounge – Seattle Airport

American Express Centurion Lounge Seattle Airport Brad and I decided to fly to Las Vegas from Seattle because paid fares were much cheaper, and we had a companion pass to use from our MBNA Alaska Airlines Mastercard (one of my current top credit card picks for Canadians). We checked out of the Four Points by Sheraton Seattle Airport Hotel around 6am and [...]

Review: Singapore Airlines SilverKris Business Class Lounge – Changi Airport

Singapore Airlines SilverKris Changi Introduction My flight to Taipei was scheduled to depart at 3pm, so I checked out of the JW Marriott Singapore South Beach Hotel and grabbed a taxi to the airport. Singapore Changi is one of my favourite airports in the world, and is consistently ranked the best amongst frequent travellers. The business class check-in line for [...]

Review: Lufthansa First Class Lounge – Frankfurt Airport

Lufthansa First Class Terminal Introduction Visiting the Lufthansa First Class Terminal in Frankfurt had been on my radar since I first got into collecting reward points. Widely considered one of the best airport lounge experiences in the world, I was finally going to experience it for myself before my first class flight to Singapore. Access to the terminal is quite [...]
