World Traveller Plus British Airways seats together

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 […]

MAN Airport Gate 16

Connecting in Manchester UK (MAN Airport) from International to Domestic

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Airport, Europe, Heathrow Airport (LHR), Travel

I’m not a fan of connecting flights and try my best to book a direct flight as often as possible. Unfortunately, my London deal included connecting in Manchester UK and I had fingers crossed that all would go well as I wasn’t familiar with the airport and had one hour and fifteen minutes to get from […]

Cat Carriers Flying with Cats

10 Tips For Flying with Cats from the “Carry On Cat” Mission

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Airport, Travel, Travel Tips

My nieces have four cats so when I visit, Smoky tries to sit by my head when I’m on the couch while George attempts to get me to pay attention to him by walking over my lap (the other two gave up a long time ago).  The cats know I’m a dog person and yet […]

Global Entry vs. TSA PreCheck – A Security Fast Pass for a Price

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Airport, Flights, The Good Stuff, Travel

When my international flight lands back in the U.S., I have fun trying to beat my times from plane to curb (need to find a bit of fun at the airport).  Flying back from Lima, I met Noah who played along with me at JFK as we landed and made our way to the specially […]

Icelandair blanket

Icelandair Business Class – Saga Seat from Newark to Reykjavik (EWR-KEF)

Posted on 8 CommentsPosted in Airlines, Airport, Europe, Flights, Iceland, Travel

For my first flight on Icelandair, for my birthday four day weekend in Reyjkavik, I decided to book Economy Comfort class, via my travel agent, which was slightly more expensive that Coach.  The added benefits were that the middle coach seat was blocked so only two people in a row, a whole one inch (1″) […]

Eiffel Tower Illuminated at night

My amazing race to the AirTrain from Penn Station to JFK with niece in tow

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Airport, Travel

The only “reality” show that I watch is the Amazing Race.  It is fascinating to me as it shows the unpredictable nature of travel that we’ve all experienced at one point. The drama is much easier to watch from the comfy couch than to actually experience it for yourself. I’ve run many of my own […]

British Airways Dinner Buffet PHL Lounge

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

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

British Airways has two flights a day out of Philadelphia direct to London Heathrow.  This fact surprises many people but then if you knew the number of pharma companies in the area, then you would know this makes sense.   The early flight has a four class cabin structure (First, Club World Business, World Traveller […]

Singapore Airlines view

My first Singapore Airlines business class flight – Seoul (ICN) to Singapore (SIN)

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Airlines, Airport, Travel

My Star Alliance award ticket to Australia was concocted in my insane attempt to try as many different airlines as I could along the way.  Having heard great reviews of Singapore Airlines over the years – larger seat, great crew, nice lounges – I was convinced that I had to add a flight or two […]

Singapore Airlines Changi buffet

Singapore SilverKris lounge in Changi, a relaxing visit with a tea time trolley

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Airport, Flights, Travel

One of the perks of flying international business class (even if award ticket) is access to the airline’s lounge, but not all lounges are created equal.  I would visit a few on the Australia award trip (USAirways PHL lounge, Asiana using KLM Chicago, Singapore SilverKris, Thai Melbourne, Thai Bangkok and finally Star Alliance Paris CDG). […]

Posted on 4 CommentsPosted in Activities/Experiences, Airport, Travel

Singapore’s Changi airport constantly wins awards as the best airport in the world, they have their own Fans of Changi and I’ve read people get to the airport hours before they need to (yes, on purpose they want to spend time in the airport).  On my way to Melbourne on my award ticket, Singapore was […]
