American Airlines First Class: EZE-MIA B777-300ER

It was around 4 weeks before this flight, I saw an in-app upgrade offer from Premium Economy to First Class for $1,056 on my EZE-MIA segment. With a flight length of ~9 hours, it was over double my threshold of $50/hr to upgrade my cabin out of pocket. This was...

Singapore Airlines Business Class: LAX-NRT B777-300ER

My last international trip prior to COVID-19 originated at LAX headed to Tokyo. This was the 1st segment of my 3 aircraft sampler with Singapore Airlines which included the B777-300ER, A380 & B787-10. Checking in at LAX with Singapore Airlines in TBIT was flawless as usual. I proceeded to the Star...

Cathay Pacific First Class: SFO-HKG B777-300ER

This was our first flight on our journey to Africa last year which I booked on miles/points. I was only able to secure 1 First Class seat at the time of booking, but I set an ExpertFlyer alert in case they opened up a seat closer to departure. Sure enough,...

Inflight WiFi Comparison 2019

It’s now been 11 years since I first started using inflight WiFi. Streaming Netflix with no issues inflight wasn’t possible years ago, but some systems can now handle 50+ Mbps which is plenty of bandwidth to handle HD Video. It’s not always fast or economical so I’ll compare my WiFi...

Cathay Pacific First Class: HKG-SFO B777-300ER

I had flown Cathay Pacific First Class before on this same route (HKG-SFO) and plane (B777-300ER) 2 years prior so I had my expectations set really high. In 2016, I had used 67,500 American Airlines miles to book a last minute ticket. This time I used 70,000 Alaska Airlines miles...

Singapore Airlines First Class: SFO-HKG-SIN B777-300ER

I was very fortunate to find Singapore Airlines First Class availability during the time I needed to travel and I couldn’t wait to fly! Using my Chase Ultimate Reward points, I transferred 118,000 points to Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer. The one-way ticket from SFO to Bali via SIN was 118,000 miles...

Emirates Economy Class: MLE-DXB B777-300ER

After an out of this world stay at The St. Regis Maldives, I had to head back home. This trip was designed around this mistake fare when I booked Emirates from MLE to LAS via DXB + SFO for USD 110 one-way. I would be flying home in Economy after a First...

Summer 2017 Travel Tips

“Hack Your Aisle Seat” I had read online about a way to get the aisle seat armrest to raise even though it appears to be locked. There is a hidden button located near the hinge which releases the armrest so you can raise it. I tried it out on a...

Cathay Pacific Premium Economy Class: HKG-SFO B777-300ER

I covered Cathay’s Premium Economy product in this previous post, but this one will focus on flying Premium Economy on the B777-300ER. The seats are similar yet the layout is different. After grabbing dinner in The Pier and a shower in a cabana in The Wing, I proceeded to the...

Virgin Australia announced their new ‘The Business’ cabin in 2014 and their first B777-300ER flew with the new offering on April 30th, 2016. The retrofitting took a few months but was 100% complete on August 31st, 2016. I had a confirmed Premium Economy seat using Virgin America miles but I was...
