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

Disclaimer: I reviewed The Wing when I was moving out of the nightmare that was Mongolia. Although I visited both lounges this past trip, this review will have mostly pictures of The Pier. Which is better,...

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...

British Airways Lounge JFK: Mashed Potatoes & Gravy

​"Go through the priority line. That way you don't have to wait with the economy class passengers." That was sound advice from the ticketing agent except for the fact that the priority line at...

Andaz Wall Street: A City Asleep

When you think Wall Street, you think Gordon Gecko. I always wanted to work on Wall Street but that 19/100 in Calculus 115 forced me to become an economics major at the University of...

Delta Sky Club MSP: A Bloody Mary Under Construction

The real time blogging begins with a review of the Delta Sky Club MSP. Per usual, I'm in the back of a Delta flight on my way back to New York City.  With only one...

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.

AMEX Centurion Houston: Not My Favorite

I once asked the question, "How long is too long at the lounge?" Personally, I like to get there as early as possible and take my time drinking, eating, and mingling. Before my SQ flight to Moscow, I arrived at the Amex Centurion Lounge in Houston hours before my flight, excited for what may be the best airline in the world in terms of service.

Hyatt Place Houston Bush Airport: Waiting on SQ Flight

It's a Hyatt Place. I've stayed at enough of them at this point to know what I'm getting myself into. The room is spacious, the bed is comfortable, but the soaps, cleverly named 1-2-3, are nothing special.

Hyatt Place Detroit Auburn Hills: It’s Not In Detroit

I'm from Michigan so I know that Auburn Hills is not near Detroit. Downtown Detroit is forty-five minutes away. The closest affiliation Auburn Hills has with Detroit is my beloved Pistons who, incidentally, are leaving Auburn Hills for Detroit next year.
