I am a tall man, and I like having knees, so I am disappointed to read about the plans for British Airways to offer less leg room than they currently do. This has been all over the web today, but it is not new news; in fact the densification of the BA Eurofleet cabins on… Read More A right old knees up!
On my recent trip to Saint Martin, I flew London to Madrid, spent a night at the airport Crowne Plaza and then flew to Miami with Iberia. The flights to and from St Martin were with American on one of their Boeing 737 aircraft. We were booked into what they call the “First Class” cabin,… Read More lAAsAAgne twice on our flights between MIA and SXM
One of the things that St Martin / Sint Maarten is most famous for is the legendary Maho Beach. Located at the west end of the runway at the Princess Juiliana International Airport, it is renowned for the very low flying aircraft over the beach and the jet wash from departing aircraft. The one and… Read More Nothing plain about this plane beach
We arrived into Miami about 30 minutes ahead of the published schedule which was good because the connection time was on the short side of comfortable. Whilst I was confident that American would look after us in the case of a miss connect, and they would not have sold me the ticket if it did… Read More Mamma MIA – what a connection!
Having arrived from the lounge, we boarded the plane and settled into our separate cabins. There was an amenities bag on the seat which was full of goodies. I was particularly impressed with the little shoe bag that meant I was able to take my boots and socks off and put them in the bag… Read More Review: Iberia Business Class A340 MAD-MIA
Having spent the night at the Crowne Plaza Madrid Airport, we took the free shuttle round to the terminal and found the Business Class check-in desks. I was pleased that there were so many and that they were actually staffed. We didn’t need to check bags in, but had to print out boarding passes as… Read More Review: Iberia Lounge at Madrid T4S
It has finally happened! My tier point balance reached 1500 and I am now officially a Gold member of the British Airways Executive Club. This is something that I never thought I would ever achieve, given that my job doesn’t involve flying but through a lot of research, guidance, and ideas from FlyerTalk and other blogs,… Read More Gold!
Most of the flying content of my blog revolves around British Airways because that is what I do most of; the route network and hub at Heathrow suit me very well, and I currently have Silver status, so the perks add an additional sway. However, changes recently to the brand have left many travellers with… Read More Another Alliance treats me like a Star
I received an email from Avios this afternoon, letting me know that I can part pay with Avios on FlyBe flights. I knew that I could do this with British Airways, but did not know that you could do this with FlyBe. Ever the curious type, I took a look to see what it meant… Read More FlyBe’s new part-pay with Avios doesn’t take off for me
Nice airport is a place that I visit several times a year. I have always flown out of the Terminal 1 which is split into two sections. The A gates are those flights which are within Europe, and the B section is for those destinations outside the Schengen Zone. All but one of my flights… Read More Nice’s nice new lounge
