Cathay A350 HKG-BKK: I Miss First Already 

I am currently sitting in seat 58J from Guangzhou to Bangkok next to a guy who keeps taking selfies. A week ago I was flying business from Hong Kong to Bangkok. When I originally booked...

Cathay First YVR-HKG: The Next Episode

And there I was in Vancouver, Canada, former home to the infamous winger Todd Bertuzzi. The Canucks is what comes to mind when I think of British Columbia.  Unfortunately, today would not be the day...

Cathay First JFK-HKG: Part 1 to Vancouver 

​I'm reminded of wise words a stranger once told me, "Don't fly direct on Cathay Pacific from JFK, take the scenic route through Vancouver." And that's what I did. And here is why you...

Singapore Airlines First to Moscow: Lobster, Krug, Givenchy, Prada

I begin this review with the sad news that SQ no longer flies from Houston to Moscow, Russia. The new routing is Houston to Manchester, England. That's the only negative you will find in this report as everything else was perfect.

Air Tahiti Island Hopper Review: Cheaper Than Maldives

It cost $500/pax to take the Maldives Seaplane from the airport to the Conrad Rangali Island. That's a steep price for a thirty minute flight but it was quite the experience.

JetBlue Flight Review: The Good, The Bad, & The Crude

Air New Zealand PVG-AKL: The Black Mamba

You're in for a treat on this flight. I skipped writing another review on the Air China Business Class Lounge Shanghai because it was just as I left it, full of patrons peddling for pasta. Instead, I'm going to focus on the sleekest Dreamliner I've ever flown, the Air New Zealand Black Mamba.

Emirates First Class to Shanghai: Don’t Stop the Party

Does anyone want to see the same photos that I just posted on my flight from JFK to DXB? I thought not. Instead, I'll focus on what made this flight unique. For starters, I had the caviar and the mezze and some cham...

Emirates Shower Class JFK-DXB: One More Time

What else can go through your head as you board a first class flight on an Emirates A380? After the customary greetings and the initial glass of champagne, I settled into my seat and heard the announcement: the flight would be delayed due to an electrical issue at JFK.
