Have you Qualifed for Elite Status for 2013?

How do you choose your loyality?

I have always wondered how people choose to be loyal to one airline or another?  Ever since I started flying I was loyal to Northwest Airlines and their partners. The reason wasn’t because I liked NWA over the other airlines, but it was actually because of my partner at the time. Since then, I’ve tried to leave NWA (now Delta) for other ...

Eating In Economy - It's getting Pricey!


Free food on Domestic US flights is very rare these days, especially in the economy class cabin. However as airlines have removed free food and snacks other airlines have not. Delta removed meals from their flights years ago, but have continued to offer free snacks, such as peanuts, pretzels, cookies, and snack mix on almost all flights. Continental was the last of the legacy carriers to pull ...

LAX T7 United Club


Not all airport lounges are created equal, yet airlines do attempt to standardize their clubs across their system making sure each one has similar offering. Never before had I stepped inside a United Club, therefore my visit to the LAX club was a christening! I was hoping to be in for a treat.

Upon entering the club a friendly United employee welcomed me and asked me for my boarding ...

Finding My Way To Borneo--Cheaply


This morning I am treating myself to an adventure that is going to take me to some very remote places in Malaysia. Being a fairly well traveled guy and having lived in China for a short time, I have been fortunate to have traveled most of South East Asia, visiting both the large and small cities, villages, and even remote parts of the region. However, this time I’m visiting a section that ...

Top Notch Service On Delta. This is Why I love you!

It’s amazing how flight attendants can make or break a flight! Last week I finally go to wish Boringham…I mean Birmingham, Alabama good bye and head back to California for good! Being an epic moment, I decided to fly home on my airline of choice, Delta. Why Delta? Because Delta has the largest fleet equipped with Wi-Fi , in seat entertainment on the majority of planes, and the ...

An Upgrade On United that Surprised Me

Thursday of this week, I will be taking my first “international” flight with United. In mid-May, for $800 r/t or 5 cpm, I was able to secure a ticket on United from LAX to MNL. The only catch was the routing was far from desirable, however since ticket prices were about $500 cheaper than United’s competitors, I had a hard time saying no. The only catch is, United’s ...

Part II: My first Flight EVER On United IAH-SAN


After my short hop from Birmingham, Alabama to Houston, I had a 1 hour layover and then was on my way home to San Diego. I landed at Terminal B and had to transfer to terminal C. I honestly thought an hour lay over would be plenty of time, but I found myself somewhat rushed. The Houston airport is like everything else in Texas…BIG! It took me 45 minutes to get from my arriving flight to ...

My first Flight EVER On United: BHM-IAH


Birmingham Alabama—not the first place most would consider traveling to, however if you ever get stuck here for work there’s a few perks (but not many). The first perk would be the tiny Birmingham International Airport with its measly 13 gates (soon to be expanded). The airport is so small they only have one line for security which is later divided into 4 security screening points ...

Vietjet Fined for Inflight Bikini Show

Low Cost Asian carriers are known to be the Party Airlines in the sky! Airlines like Cebu Pacific in the Philippines have been known for performing the safety demonstration for the aircraft to pop songs along with performing dance routines midflight. Once on a Cebu Pacific flight I was on, they had people do Karaoke over the intercom. Slightly annoying, yes but since it’s something ...

My First Trip EVER on United


Always being a Delta Guy, I recently decided to try out United. After attempting to get a status match and having more than an Epic Fail from United, I decided that United was not the airline for me and I was going to stick with Delta. Although, this week, I’m going to use United for a flight because the flight times just happened to be better and this week only (ok I've had elite status ...
