Lufthansa First Class is a relatively attainable luxury for those who play in the miles/points world.  Its not easy to get, but its doable. For this flight, I was excited to finally be able to enjoy the 'seat and a bed' cabin upstairs on the 747-400.  I've flown Lufthansa First several ...

Graffiti, history, laughter, and Caipirinhas –the only way I can sum up my amazing layover in Sao Paulo in November. With only a short time in Sao Paulo, I made it my mission to see the most of the city as possible, and in doing so I took a free city walking tour, met up with locals, drank ...

Thai Airways A346 Royal First Class from Bangkok to Hong Kong

I saw 4 engines, but this airplane was made in France, not Seattle.  Yep, I got TG'd.  In plain English, the original aircraft scheduled to make this trip has changed to something else.  It could be worse, at least this flight still had a first class cabin (unlike the experience James ...
