These Airlines Offer Cocktail Bars In The Sky…

There are few experiences more "James Bond" than walking up to a bartender at 33,000 feet and saying "martini, shaken not stirred" on a commercial airplane.

Savage! Virgin Atlantic Offering British Airways Flyers 50 REASONS To Cancel Their Bookings…

Like all great crime dramas, every brand needs their own reviled enemy. When British Airways launched the "London Eye", and the sphere wasn't able to be erected in the appropriate time frame, Virgin Atlantic launched a blimp around London explaining that their competing airline "couldn't get it up". Last year I even became part of a Virgin Atlantic PR slam dunk. It's with no surprise that the airline has just outdone themselves, going 100% savage in an attack on British Airways. They've even launched the hashtag #VAnotBA... yikes...(Continue Reading)...

Official DATE! Qatar’s Revolutionary Business Class “QSuite” Is Set To Debut Early!

There's never been a more hyped seat in business class than the Qatar Airways "QSuite". Unveiled just a couple months ago in Berlin, the seat is not a seat at all-it's a private, fully enclosed suite, and if you're traveling with a companion, it's even more. You can dine together as a group of four, thanks to the inventive new middle section, or a couple can select a row where two beds are side by side, creating a private double bed. There's now a launch date...(Continue Reading)...

Private Immigration Suite?! Here’s What It’s Like To Experience A VIP Arrival In SINGAPORE…

We've all heard the term (and aspired to be) VIP. At Singapore Changi Airport, there is no such thing. There is however CIP, and you'll soon realize that sometimes CIP>VIP.

GIVEAWAY: LoungeBuddy + Lufthansa + Free Lounge Passes = Good Deal For Travelers…

Let's be honest, economy seats aren't getting any bigger. Since most of us face that inevitability, what matters is the amount of comfort we experience in every moment leading up to the flight.

LoungeBuddy is making that dream possible for any traveler, and to celebrate their new partnership with Lufthansa, they've got a gift for you...(Continue Reading)...

FIVE Things British Airways (Should) Do To IMPROVE, Which They Haven’t Announced…

Anyone who's been through an airport or boarded an airplane has played airline CEO in their mind at least once. Couldn't they just do "this"? Why don't they do "that"? Truth be told, running an airline is extremely complicated. Planes take years for delivery, seats are almost worse, good catering is hard to come by and crew and staff issues can be a nuisance. British Airways is going through a transitional time, and though many new ideas were announced this past week, there are five other issues I feel are worth considering...(Continue Reading)...

Delta Has Officially Become The ENEMY Of Anyone With Frequent Flyer Miles…

Read carefully and repeat after me: Delta CANNOT be trusted. With recent moves shocking even the greatest of cynics, it's clear that the airline is fully determined to run loyalty into the ground, while turning frequent flyer miles into a hobby with little to no reward, even for their most frequent customers. Let's take a painful walk down memory lane in regards to Delta and their Skymiles program, which is still unraveling today...(Continue Reading)...

The BEST BUSINESS And FIRST Seats On British Airways A380, 747, 787 and 777…

Let's start with the basis that all business and first class seats are amazing. We've gotta remember that anyone sitting behind that curtain would gladly trade you for any sea in your cabin, perhaps even trampling over fellow passengers just for the opportunity to enjoy a seat which turns into a bed and also happens to serve free champagne. With that said, not all these amazing seats offer the perfect experience for your trip, so were going to address each one!...(Continue Reading)...

Absolutely Ridiculous? One Airline Serves $350+ A Bottle Champagne In First Class…

Emirates? Nope. Etihad? Nope. Qatar? Singapore? Still no. Sure, you'll find $150 a bottle Dom Perignon or something similarly incredible in any of these top five star carriers, but you certainly won't find Salon. The coveted, limited production champagne that's won countless awards and fetches $350 or more per bottle can only be found on one airline. For the ridiculous privilege of drinking something that costs at least $10 per sip, you'll need to fly...(Continue Reading)...
