Malindo Air Review: US Discount Carriers Take Note

I had one hour to make my connection when I arrived in KL. We were delayed on the runway for an hour so I was sure I would miss the connection. The flight attendant told me that when we arrived someone would be waiting for me at the gate with instructions on how to proceed.

Have you ever been to Jakarta? Do you want to go? If so, be prepared for traffic, and lots of it. I went to Java to check it off my country count list for my quest to reach 100 'countries'.

Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounge KL: Damn Good Soup

​The Pier Vs. The Wing: Battle of Cathay’s First Class Lounges

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...
