REVIEW: Qatar Airways Airbus A350-900 BUSINESS Class In 360° Virtual Reality…

Business class is always more pleasure than business, and when you're flying on the airline that just won the best business class award, flying on their newest, most desired aircraft, the Airbus A350-900, excitement is impossible to avoid. The problem is that excitement generally leads to expectation, and expectation is hard to deliver on. On an around the world adventure, sampling the best first and business class cabins, we took a ride on Qatar Airways flight 57 from Doha to Munich, aboard their state of the art new plane. The experience? Nothing short of Fantastic...(Continue Reading)...

REVIEW: Virgin Atlantic’s 787 Dreamliner UPPER CLASS In 360° Virtual Reality…

Flying business class is an experience, and if it's done right, that experience hits all the right notes from the minute you arrive at the airport, up until the last cup of coffee in the arrivals lounge. Since we've reviewed the Upper Class service quite a few times, we thought it would be fun to instead simply share the experience as simply as possible, solely with 360° virtual reality photos, which you can control in any direction by clicking and dragging (computer) or swiping with your finger (mobile)...(Continue Reading)...

REVIEW: British Airways 747 FIRST CLASS In 360° Virtual Reality…

There's nothing quite like the feeling of that very first international business class experience. Flat beds, champagne, lounges and total luxury. It feels pretty damn special. First class, however, in the nose of the Boeing 747 Queen of The Skies with British Airways, is a whole new level. With celeb sightings, expensive champagne and total comfort it lived up to the hype...(Continue Reading).

REVIEW: American Airlines 777-200 BUSINESS Class In 360° Virtual Reality…

When you can catch a good nights sleep at 33,000 feet, the Atlantic Ocean really does become a pond. Add in some drinks, lounges, gourmet meals and a fast track through the airport and the pond becomes something you can't wait to skip over. After countless flights on Virgin Atlantic, British Airways and Delta to London, we put American Airlines new business class to the test...(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).

REVIEW: Virgin Atlantic UPPER CLASS Airbus A340-600 In 360° Virtual Reality…

Few things rival the feeling of jetting across an ocean in a flat bed. Add in an on board bar, exquisite lounge and friendly service and you enter a world of travel worth celebrating. For an exciting trip to London we used 40,000 Virgin Atlantic miles per person to experience "Upper Class", Virgin Atlantic's take on business class...(Continue Reading).

Review: JetSmarter Citation X Private Jet In 360° Virtual Reality (We Took It For Free)…

I've left Boston plenty of times, none more memorable than any other, but then I left Boston on a private jet. My god, that's something I'll never forget. Perhaps it was the feeling of going to the other side of Boston Logan Airport, to the side not even the cabbies seemed to know, or maybe the fact that it was free, thanks to some clever travel hacking, but there's nothing quite like the feeling of flying without anyone else, in a private jet at 40,000 feet...(Continue Reading).

Review: South African Airways Business Class Airbus A340…

South Africa is incredible, getting there is somewhat less so. There are very few direct flights from major European cities into Cape Town Airport, zero from the US and few from elsewhere. It essentially means that almost all of you hoping to visit the seaside city, set along the foothills of Table Mountain, which is so beautiful it might as well be a dreamed up movie set, will connect through Johannesburg. In doing so, I grabbed paid business class tickets, which were relatively cheap, flexible and offered flights at the same price on South African's long haul Airbus A340's, the same planes that serve many of their most famous far away cities...(Continue Reading).

Review: British Airways A380 “Club World” Business Class In 360° Virtual Reality…

It's a bird, it's a bloated whale, it's a plane? Surely that thing can't fly! Packing two decks, four classes of service and enough space for a moderately sized village, the Airbus A380 is one serious piece of equipment, or some "seriously impressive kit" as our senior captain told me. I've been eager for quite some time now to fly British Airways A380, their flagship aircraft, to see what all the fuss is about. I was delighted to find a perfect deal, allowing us to fly direct from London Heathrow to San Francisco, experiencing one of the airline's premier Club World services. On a flight spanning roughly twelve hours, it was nice to stretch out. Even better? Doing it on the Upper Deck...(Continue Reading).

Review: Delta “One” 767-300 Business Class In FULL 360° Virtual Reality…

What's one less than two, the loneliest number and the name of a U2 song? Ah yes, One. Delta One is the airline's highest level of service, available on all international long haul flights and transcontinental direct flights between New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Though Delta was my first true frequent flyer love, and the airline I've held status with for the longest consecutive amount of time, for no apparent reason it's been over a year since I've actually flown with them. To get home from a quick stint in San Francisco, I thought buying an economy ticket and using 12,500 miles would be a great way to experience their "upgraded" product. It was "one" excellent experience...(Continue Reading).
