Future Business Class Seat Wish List

While spending nearly a week of my life in various business class seats during my Qatar Airways Mileage Run I’ve gotten a fairly good understanding of what makes an average business class seat and a great business class seat. During that time I also spent a lot of time thinking about what the “best” business class…
Review: Qatar Airways Business Class A330 Ho Chi Minh Vietnam To Doha

After a few days of flying to Vietnam and exploring Ho Chi Minh city it was finally time to board my first of eight Qatar Airways business class flights. This flight was the first flight of two round trips that I purchased during the incredible Qatar Airways fare sale back in July of this year.…
Exciting American Airlines 2018 Mileage Run Opportunity

Sadly there isn’t much time left to attain American Airlines AAdvantage status in 2017. If you haven’t already qualified or aren’t close it may be time to give up. I say this because it might be better to save your money this year and use those funds to get a head start of 2018 status. The…
Hurry: Book Holiday American Airlines Award Flights Now

American Airlines has been pulling back sAAver level award availability for a while now. I often can’t believe how hard it is to find a simple award flight from a hub city to one of their smaller markets. Usually, availability is especially restricted for holiday travel. After all, restricting sAAver level awards during peak travel…
Lounge Review: Apricot Lounge Ho Chi Minh Vietnam Airport

After two days of positioning flights to Vietnam and several hours exploring the city, it was finally time to head back to the airport to catch my first of eight Qatar Airways flights.

A Day In Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam

After nearly a full 24 hours of traveling I finally touched down in Ho Chi Minh Vietnam, received my visa, and cleared immigration. I officially made it to Vietnam. I had just 20 hours and ready to explore Ho Chi Min City. Since I slept well over 10 hours on my two Asiana Business Class…
Delta To Further Restrict Sky Club Access For 2019 And Beyond

A few days ago Delta Air Lines announced a new policy that limits access to Delta Sky Club lounges for passengers with Sky Club memberships. This new policy won’t go into effect until Jan 1, 2019 so the airline is giving members plenty of time to decide if membership is still worth it. However, this…
Oops: I Almost Missed My Qatar Airways Flight!

I don’t want to jinx myself (maybe I shouldn’t write this down), but I’ve only missed one flight in my entire life. Nearly two years ago now I missed a flight from Chicago to Atlanta which continued on to Miami. That trip was one of my first Mileage Runs and ended up being incredibly stressful.…
Travel Tech: A Few Weeks With The Bose Soundsport Free Headphones

I’ve had the Bose Soundsport Free headphones for just under a month now and I’ve logged a ton of hours with them. I haven’t used them while working out as much as I should have, but I did get a ton of use from them during my recent around the world mileage run. I have…
