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...

The Club at ATL, the “other” ATL lounge

For those of you out there with a Priority Pass membership, you’ll be happy to know that when you’re traveling through Atlanta, you have an option.  Yes, 1 option.  And it’s kinda far away.  BUT.  It is staffed by the most friendly people in Atlanta and they have a full, free, open, heavy pour bar. All the way down in Concourse F, in a land far, far away from all the other concourses, lies the sole Priority Pass...

REVIEW: Delta Sky Club, ATL Concourse F

After an uneventful flight from Seattle to Atlanta, we had about a 5 hour layover in Atlanta.  We thought it would be an excellent opportunity to head over to the F gates a bit early and enjoy the Delta Sky Club there.  It’s not the largest in the network, but to me it has some of the best features among all the sky clubs. This club features an awesome observation deck that looks out over the tarmac.  The view of the planes...

EgyptAir Adventures, “Business Class” Embraer 170

To get around Egypt you’ve got three options: Tourist trains and buses, which take forever and come with armed guards, a Nile cruise which could take days at a time, or EgyptAir. In the interest of time, we opted for choice number 3.

Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai and Holiday Inn Al Barsha

There are dozens of chain hotels in Dubai to choose from. IHG has a dozen or so, so does Starwood. Marriott has around 10, and Hyatt has 4. Heck, even Club Carlson has around 6 to choose from. Since we wanted to keep our platinum status with Starwood, we opted for the Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai because of it’s central location and low point redemption options.
