Well folks, from the flight deck, we've now covered all flight cabins. The worst economy, the best economypremium economy and business class. That leaves us here.

There is however an interesting new Emirates route...(Continue Reading)...

British Airways Will Charge For Food + Drinks (Even Water + Tea) On Short Haul Flights…

British Airways is having quite a large identity crisis. Part of that is being spurred on by having a CEO, Alex Cruz, who used to run a low cost airline, which was good at slashing every benefit except the aircraft tires. His new post is an airline which offers £120 a bottle champagne in first class, full service lounges and amenities, yet at the same time, at his helm, a dwindling short haul economy experience, being stripped of everything that's not bolted to the aircraft. Seat cushions could be next...(Continue Reading)...

The Finest Meals In The Sky + Where To Get Them…

People always talk about reinventing the wheel and I have no idea how that's going. Reinventing airplane food however has come a long, long way. Chefs are the new rockstars, collaborations are so in right now and it's an arms race in the sky to serve meals considered heavenly regardless of altitude. Whether it's chefs on a plane, rare truffles, book the cook or just a simple classic done to perfection, there are some mighty fine meals to be had. Using miles means you might not even have to pay for them...(Continue Reading).

Review: British Airways CLUB WORLD London City In 360° Virtual Reality…

Picture a commercial travel experience where you feel as if you're on a private jet, one that also happens to share the callsign and flight number previously assigned to the legendary Concorde. Now forget everything you know about pictures. This review is the first to incorporate 360 degree "virtual reality" technology. On certain photos, which are clearly labeled, you can use your mouse (desktop) or finger (mobile) to click and move the images around in any direction, up down, left right, as you wish, to make you feel as if you're right there on the flight. Speaking of which, our flight on British Airways Club World London City allowed us to cross the pond on an aircraft with less seats on the whole plane, than there are business class seats alone on any of their other planes. It holds a maximum capacity of 32 people, making for an extremely "private" experience no lines, no rush, plenty of luxury. Join us... (Continue Reading).
