American Airlines Business Class: DFW-EZE B787-9

My first international trip outside of North America since February 2020 when COVID-19 started was to Argentina. I was able to find “C” class availability using ExpertFlyer on the DFW-EZE segment which allowed me to upgrade my Premium Economy ticket to Business Class for 15,000 AA miles one-way. Flying on American’s...

Garuda Indonesia Economy Class: DPS-SYD A330-300

I made my way back to the US from a week in Bali via Sydney. The ticket was super cheap from SYD-HNL-SFO so I figured why not spend a few nights in Australia. Booking Garuda Indonesia flights is best direct via their website. The fare was around USD 250, but...

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...

United Airlines Premium Economy Class: IAD-SFO B787-9

United announced Premium Plus back in late 2018, but just rolled out the new seats on their 787-9 Dreamliner’s this year. I was lucky to be able to try it out a few months ago. United downgraded the 777-200 serving this route (IAD-SFO) with a smaller, but more fuel efficient...

Singapore Airlines Business Class: SIN-DPS B787-10

Staying overnight in Singapore after I landed from Tokyo makes it a great stop on the way to Bali. We had 23 hours to explore this amazing city. It was a warm February night, but we were still able to explore the Marina area including Marina Bay Sands. With COVID-19...

Singapore Airlines Business Class: NRT-SIN A380

Singapore Airlines introduced their new Business Class seats on their A380 at the end of 2017 and I was lucky to be able to fly it earlier this year before all A380’s were grounded due to COVID-19. I redeemed 95,000 Singapore Airlines miles plus SGD 50 in taxes for Business...

This was our final long haul flight on the way home from our journey to Africa last year which I booked on miles/points. I was only able to secure 2 First Class seats (3A & 4A) at the time of booking which can be very challenging with Etihad, but you...

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,...

Lufthansa First Class: ORD-FRA B747-8i

Lufthansa First Class has been on my bucket list of flight experiences since I started this blog over 4 years ago and I finally was able to try it out on a recent trip for the World Cup. Lufthansa was just named the 7th best airline in the world for...
