While on other airlines the flight attendants will often refuse or be quite hesitant to heat up your own personal food on Singapore I had heard that was not that case and was counting on that. Indeed our flight attendant was overjoyed that we had our own food and was only too happy to heat up the food we brought from Carlos & Gabby’s. She even proactively offered to put the leftover food in the refrigerator for the remainder of the flight. That turned out to be great as we ate the same food on the airplane on the way home! On Cathay the flight attendants will very likely not be willing to heat up or refrigerate your food for you. Don’t get me wrong, Cathay service is very good, but they just have so many rules and regulations and they seem completely unwilling to bend any of them, even to accommodate a pregnant woman or a baby. The Singapore service is just something really special, it felt very warm and natural as opposed to the more robotic … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Singapore A380 Suites And 46 Hours In Paris

All in all, I’d say that the sunset was amazing, though not quite as grand as the sunrise. However I don’t think the difference is big enough to justify getting up at 3:30am on vacation. The other thing to keep in mind is that the sunrise and sunset definitely varies based on that day’s cloud cover. … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: The Final United 747 Flight And 2 Days In Maui
I waited a bit and then called AJK in his room and asked if he was still interested in trying to salvage Palau. [AJK: Actually, Dan waited precisely 37 minutes after we finished eating dinner, and me telling him not to bother me until the morning so I could get a decent night of sleep and get over this fever, but you see how well Dan follows directions when he gets an idea in his head…] And he said in no uncertain terms that his boss was counting on him being back Friday morning. … [Read more...] about United Island Hopper Trip Notes Part 2: It’s Time To Hop!
[AJK: Frankly, it was harder to secure a shower than I thought it would be. Perhaps it’s just me, but I expected that passengers flying First should have priority over those flying Business, but apparently it’s first come, first serve, regardless of class. That said, being assertive worked and I was finally given shower room. Mid-shampoo, when I heard final boarding call for our ANA flight back to New York, I jumped out of the shower and high-tailed it to the gate, which fortunately was only a couple minutes away.] … [Read more...] about United Island Hopper Trip Notes Part 4: Tokyo, Japan And Back Home In ANA First Class
Days before the flight AJK texted me excitedly while I was at a Cavs game with my better half that 2 first class saver award seats opened on a JAL flight from Tokyo to Chicago. The JAL flight would mean a 90 minute connection in Tokyo on a separate ticket on an airline from another alliance. American only charges 62.5K miles in first class from Japan to the USA versus 110K on United, so at first glance it was a no-brainer. However United was also throwing in the flights from Palau to Tokyo at that 110K rate, so that would mean having to shell out 12.5K United miles in coach or 25K miles in business to get to Tokyo. Ultimately we nixed the JAL option as well because we were nervous about misconnecting, wanted to check out Tokyo, and wanted to try out ANA Squares First Class. … [Read more...] about United Island Hopper Trip Notes Part 1: Honolulu
There was plenty of time to wash up with time to spare. The shower had hot water instantly and the pressure was great. This was no gimmick, it was truly enjoyable to have a great shower after a good night’s rest. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of landing and being totally refreshed and ready to go. … [Read more...] about Maldives Trip Notes Part 1: Flying Emirates Shower Class To Dubai
