Review & Photos of The United Club PHL Lounge

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Business Travel, PHL Airport

For my first flight on United Airlines from Philadelphia, I would be in Terminal D.  Having no status with United or Star Alliance, I was happy to pull out my free lounge pass (paper pass will change to digital in 2018), a benefit of my Chase United Mileage Plus Explorer Visa card.  Each year, I […]

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Business Travel, Philadelphia, PHL Airport

Luxury comes to the Philadelphia Airport in the form of the American Express Centurion Lounge at PHL (PHL Centurion Lounge).  As the eighth Centurion lounge in the U.S., the space is warm and welcoming with a mix of woods, warm colors and modern comfort with pops of color (and a ton of pillows). When I […]

An Exhausting Day of AA Flight Delays from Philly to Seattle (AA PHL-SEA)

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Airlines, PHL Airport

There’s a first time for everything they say….I just wish it wasn’t me that had to experience it so often.  Over the years, I’ve sat on runways delayed for no reason in the sun and other times sat on the runway because of Airforce One.  With nightmare travel days and travel meltdowns, taxi strikes, train […]

British Airways World Traveller Plus Review (BA PHL-LHR-PHL)

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Airlines, Airport, Heathrow Airport (LHR), PHL Airport

I’ve been very spoiled over the years flying Club World (business class) on British Airways from Philadelphia to London return for work in my prior job.  Now that has ended, I’ve had to pay my own way to London (yes, I know cue the sad tiny violins) and have done it in a variety of […]

American Airlines Philadelphia to Manchester UK (PHL-MAN) Review A330

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Airlines, Europe, Flights, PHL Airport, Travel

When the amazing British Airways deal popped up for two days in October, I was a bit too slow to jump on a direct flight to London so I ended up with a British Airways codeshare flying Philadelphia to Manchester UK on American Airlines (formerly USAirways) connecting to British Airways onward to London.  The upside […]

American Airlines PHL Lounge in Philadelphia – PHL AA Terminal B/C

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Airlines, Philadelphia, PHL Airport

For my morning trip to Houston which was leaving from Terminal B, I thought “hey let me see what the American Airlines PHL Lounge looks like in Terminal B/C” since I had recently visited the Terminal A lounge. The B/C lounge was a bit tricky for me to find.  I knew it required an elevator […]

The British Airways Lounge Philadelphia Review – Free Wine & Cookies!

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Airlines, Airport, Philadelphia, PHL Airport, Travel

British Airways had two flights a day out of Philadelphia direct to London Heathrow, in April of 2017, sadly this changed to just one flight a day.  The early flight has a four class cabin structure (First, Club World Business on two levels, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller Coach). My favorite flight, the last […]

American Airlines Lounge PHL Review (AA PHL Terminal A West)

Posted on 4 CommentsPosted in Airlines, Airport, Philadelphia, PHL Airport

The perk of flying on a business class international ticket is the lounge access.  Over the years,  traveling solo, the lounge has been a good place to have a quiet seat, charge my phone and not worry about my bags when I want to use the bathroom (one downside of solo travel is getting someone […]

A marriage of two airlines: the USAirways/American Airlines merger

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Airlines, Philadelphia, PHL Airport

Quite appropriate that the US Airways and American Airlines merger would be announced last week on Valentine’s Day – the marriage (merger) of two single parents (airlines) in a sense.  Sure we should be happy that they found each other but as children (frequent fliers) of each parent, we of course are a bit skeptical of what the blending […]
