-Thursday, 12/27: We flew back on USAirways in Envoy class on an A330. The seats are very comfortable, though as a bed it’s pretty narrow. The footbed is also very narrow, though it seems that as on United, the bulkhead seats had bigger foot cutouts. The kosher food was from Stogel’s which is the absolute worst garbage in the air that you likely wouldn’t even eat if you were starving. One flight attendant refused to heat up our own food but another awesome flight attendant was happy to do so. All in all service was fine, but as with all US airlines will greatly vary based on the attitude of the flight attendant and the ones that work routes like Paris are the ones that have been around for decades too long. There are 4 seats across in business class and each seat has direct aisle access which is great. Downside to not having a suite? The french woman directly across the aisle from me was hacking and coughing for the entire flight … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Singapore A380 Suites And 46 Hours In Paris

Joseph rebooked us in a full revenue fare class. I gave my United 1K mileage number and wound up with no miles. AJK gave his Aegean mileage number and wound up with tens of thousands of miles. [AJK: 35,000 miles to be exact. Not only that, but this one-way travel earned me Star Alliance Gold for another year, through 2017! Bottom line, if United moves you from an award bucket to a revenue fare due to being bumped, the flight being cancelled or delayed, make sure to switch your frequent flyer number to a partner to be able to earn miles free miles on a free ticket. United will not award them to its own program and you won’t get retroactive credit after the flight.] … [Read more...] about United Island Hopper Trip Notes Part 2: It’s Time To Hop!
The Park Hyatt has a free shuttle that runs between the hotel and Shinjuku station, but the station is sprawling and despite asking the hotel for the location of the shuttle we were unable to figure out where to go. So we hopped in a taxi for a quick ride to the hotel. … [Read more...] about United Island Hopper Trip Notes Part 4: Tokyo, Japan And Back Home In ANA First Class
Alas, the Westin did not make it easy to get the bag into one of their freezers. In the past my wife and I had a much larger suitcase full of frozen food that they froze without issue, so I didn’t even think of calling to make sure they would be able to do it for this trip. There was a solid hour while various employees pushed back (liability issues, etc) until AJK took over and decided to stop being Mr. Nice Guy and somehow that unlocked all the doors. Maybe any problems I encounter when traveling only occur when I smile too much? [AJK: Step 1) be assertive, Step 2) “may I speak with your manager?” Step 3) … Step 4) Profit.] … [Read more...] about United Island Hopper Trip Notes Part 1: Honolulu
I’ve flown international first class on most American, European, and Asian airlines with my miles. I’d say that my favorite service on a flight has been from ANA and Singapore, their flight attendants are in another league and tend to your every need. My favorite first class bed and seat is on Cathay Pacific, though they are the only airline known to refuse to warm up your own kosher meal and their service isn’t quite as good as other Asian carriers. Lufthansa and Swiss have great first class lounges and ground services. Qantas‘ first class lounges are amazing as well. My favorite cabin was on TAM, where I was able to book the entire first class cabin/living room for my family with miles. And flying Singapore’s couples suites is pretty amazing as well. … [Read more...] about Maldives Trip Notes Part 1: Flying Emirates Shower Class To Dubai
