Island Air’s Final Day, Flight Review

Island Air’s last day was November 10, 2017, and we were lucky enough (or perhaps unlucky enough??) to have purchased a ticket on their final day of operations. Emotions were running high for everyone involved. Ground crew was taking pictures, flight attendants were crying, and a large amount of passengers were none the wiser. We landed into Honolulu from San Jose, CA and only had about 75 minutes to make our connection. We had to...

Alaska Airlines SkyWest First Class Review

Skywest operates many of the routes to smaller cities for Alaska Airlines. The service is great, but it is much different than the 737’s the Alaska Airlines offers. Check out our Alaska Airlines Skywest First Class review here!

The catering is BAD on Alaska Airlines, and they know it.

The catering is BAD on Alaska Airlines, and they know it.

As a 75k gold member on Alaska Airlines, we fly a lot. Last year we flew over 95k miles on Alaska Airlines flights alone, and in total around 120,000 including partners. Because of their generous (often free) upgrades, we got bumped up to first class about 85% of the time. While I enjoy the comfortable seat, drinks, entertainment player, and attentive service, the one area where they could use some serious help from Virgin America...

Nepal Airlines Review, Flight from KTM-DEL

There are three airlines that fly between Kathmandu and Delhi, one of which is Nepal Airlines. Some other day we could probably find a flight on Jet Airways and Air India, but having the opportunity to fly on Nepal’s flag carrier seemed like an opportunity we didn’t want to miss! Nepal Airlines only operates with a fleet of 10 aircraft, only two of which are A320’s which they use on international routes between Hong Kong, Delhi,...

Etihad A320 Business Class Review

Unlike Emirates which only flies with 777 or A380 aircraft, Etihad A320 aircraft service some of the shorter routes in the middle east and beyond. While many European carriers offer a coach class seat in their intra-Europe business class, Etihad A320 Business Class stands out by offering a fantastic hard AND soft product on these short flights. After our stay at the Aloft hotel in Abu Dhabi (which you can read about here) and we...

Emirates vs Etihad: Battle of the Seats

Once again we’ll start this post agreeing that when it comes to First Class and luxury, the Gulf carries are most definitely the way to go, as they offer more than any other airline does for similar routes. From their top notch champagne and caviar service, to their on demand meals and their spacious seats and suites to the million amenities, one can’t help but feel pampered at 40,000 feet in the air. But when it comes to...
