There has been much hype in the last few days about Thr First Wing at Terminal 5. This is a genuine enhancement in the service offered to 1st class passengers and gold card holders when travelling through Heathrow. The idea behind it is to offer an integrated check-in, security, and lounge entrance service for British… Read More The First Wing at Heathrow T5
The Imperial War Museum at Duxford is a few miles south west of Cambridge. It is easily located just off the M 11 about an hour north of London. It is home to one of the most incredible collections of aircraft in the United Kingdom. I decided to go and visit the museum, having driven… Read More The Imperial War Musem, Duxford – an AvGeek’s dream!
Our connection on the outbound MAD-MIA-SXM was really smooth as I reported here, and I was glad that we had a practice run through. Flying home, our plane was late in departing so a short connection became a tight one which was not helped by the lack of Flight Connections. We were fortunate to be in… Read More Is Flight Connections too much to ask for?
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

I have a Le Club Accor Gold card through this little trick… Read More Review: Mercure St Martin Marina and Spa
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
I know that I can be quite forgetful at times, not least as I explained when I went to Rome to collect the iPad that I had left on a plane.This is clearly something that I am not going to grow out of, given the fact that I have gone and left something on my… Read More MisterAirmiles = Mr Forgetful
I stayed at the Crowne Plaza last summer when I was on my wide-bodied jet tour with my Mum and was really impressed. When I knew that I would be in Madrid overnight this trip, I booked the hotel again. We had been offered an upgrade to a suite last time, but we declined as… Read More Review: Crowne Plaza Madrid Airport (again!)
