Etihad First and Business Class Lounge London Heathrow

London has one Etihad lounge to cover both the Business and First class passengers and doesn’t distinguish between then. The lounge is shared between both passengers, but while it may seem crowded, the lounge still provides plenty of space and opportunities to relax. Transfer was a breeze thanks to the Etihad Chauffer transfer from the St Pancras Renaissance. Once we arrived at the first class checkin, a porter was waiting to help us...

Air France Salon Affaires, Terminal 2E

Air France has a lot of lounges in CDG airport as they operate out of many terminals, but the one that we used, the Salon Affaires, was located in Terminal 2E Traveling as a Skyteam Elite member (Platinum Skymiles) member on an international ticket allows us to use the Air France lounge, no matter the class of service we’re flying in. With that in mind, we passed the security checks and headed down the elevator to the lounge one floor...

Etihad Arrivals Lounge, Abu Dhabi

Etihad Arrivals Lounge, Abu Dhabi

After a long flight into Abu Dhabi, one of the best things you can have is a visit to the Etihad Arrivals Lounge to clean up, relax, and have a quick nibble or drink before departing. As we know that we would have a bit of a wait for our car and for our hotel, we thought we’d have a quick stop in and see what they had to offer. After collecting your bags and before heading to Customs, you’ll come across the Etihad Premium Arrivals...

Manila’s Domestic Terminal 4, A Review

Manila’s Domestic Terminal 4, A Review

Just a quick 10 minute drive from the Manila City of Dreams Hyatt hotel was the Manila domestic terminal. It’s not connected to the international terminal so to get there you can either leave and take a taxi, or you can take the shuttle bus that’s offered to get there for free. It leaves around ever 20-30 minutes, but don’t think that getting a taxi will be any quicker. It’s also about 15 minutes in taxi because of the traffic lights,...

Korean Air Lounge, Tokyo Narita Airport

Thanks to our awesome Priority Pass membership, we had access to the Korean Air lounge in the international terminal of Tokyo’s NRT airport. While we didn’t know what to expect from the lounge, we were pleased nonetheless to have a place to relax before our flight to Manila. Upon arrival into Tokyo’s Narita airport, we deplaned and followed the signs for “transit flights”. As we headed through the security and ultimately the duty...

Copa Lounge, Panama City

Copa Lounge, Panama City

There are two Priority Pass lounges in the Tocumen airport in Panama City. The first is landside (pre security) and the Copa lounge right in front of gate 21. Conveniently the gate for our American flight was out of gate 20. We entered the club and were greeted by a friendly (for being 545am) attendant who cheerfully took our Priority Pass card, scanned it, and let us in. The club was pretty empty being that it was so early, so it...

Quick Lounge Visit, Galleries Lounge, London Heathrow

We only had about a 90 minute layover total, so we had to make a quick connection in Heathrow. If you’ve ever visited Heathrow, you’ll know that “quick” and “connection” aren’t two words you usually hear about Heathrow. The Galleries Lounge in the B section of Terminal 5 is located right near the B42 gate by going up an escalator. It’s open, like most oneworld lounges, to business and first passengers, and Sapphire/Emerald one world...

What’s a Mileage Run really worth?

As a summary of our Labor Day weekend mileage run to Panama City and back (#NMCLaborDay), we thought we’d leave you with an explanation of why it made sense for us to do it and a rundown of all the numbers we tallied up.

Newest SeaTac Priority Pass Lounge

One of the great benefits of the myriad of credit cards out there (Chase Sapphire Reserve, Citi Prestige, etc) is that they all come with a Priority Pass membership.  Priority Pass has partnerships with over 900 lounges all over the world, and they seem to be adding more every day. We’re lucky in Seattle that we have tons of airport lounges to choose from, such as the United lounge, and Amex Centurion Lounge, the Delta Sky...

A trip through time: Santiago’s Admirals Club

Have you ever felt like you’ve just been transported back in time to the 80’s?  Reagan was president, you were jamming in the park with your walkman to Jessie’s Girl, Hungry like the Wolf, or You Spin Me Round, AND if you were traveling to Santiago de Chile, you were enjoying the Admiral’s Club. At least that what it felt like.  I don’t think this club has been updated since then… We found...
