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
Emirates first class flights
[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

We were the first to board the monstrosity known as the A380. Suites class consists of 8 single suites by the windows and 2 double suites in the middle, for a maximum capacity of 12 passengers. On our flight there was just 1 other Suites passenger, so we had very personal service from our own dedicated flight attendant. She went so far and beyond the call of duty I don’t even know where to begin. I’ve flown first class on airlines like Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa, Swiss, Qantas, and more but the service on Singapore was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before. From taking the coat off my back to placing slippers by our feet it was really something that has to be experienced to fully comprehend. My cups never fell empty of Seltzer or scotch, which alternated between Blue Label and Macallan Single Malt. There were 2 bathrooms for the 3 suites passengers and they were always scrubbed spotless. While there’s no shower … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Singapore A380 Suites And 46 Hours In Paris
