My friend’s daughter was kind enough to drive me to the airport for my fourth flight in that many days – I am going to Capetown! In Terminal B, in the area for gates C, D and E there is the Bidvest Sky Lounge which accepts Priority Pass. It is one level up, so you … Read More
Within a few days, I’ll be on my way to Iguazu Falls (Foz Do Iguacu, Brazil) and Lima, Peru. The basics are in place, but I feel like there’s so much that’s still up in the air (pun unintentional). Flights are on LAN. JFK-LIM-IGU-LIM- JFK. It was a mistake fare of less than $400 per … Read More
Yes, I know you will say there were many such days, and I won’t disagree, but I’m referring to the one day this year I was to fly on United Airlines. July 8th. Well I never did fly on United that day, but it worked out ok in the end. I was going to … Read More
This week I flew Delta Business (renamed Delta One) Class to Amsterdam, connecting to a 40 minute flight to Luxembourg in a KLM “Fokker” Cityhopper.

I have been there a number of times before, when it was previously known as the Oasis Lounge. On those prior visits, I was underwhelmed by the lounge, and disturbed by … Read More

This was still part of Day 1 of Around the World in 8 days! After arriving at Malpensa earlier in the morning, visiting the Sala Respighi lounge, and then working out at the Sheraton fitness center, I made my way back to Terminal 1 to Sala Monteverde (after first passing an amazing model of the Duomo made of Legos!).
And so began my Around the World in 8 days trip, with visits to 2 neighboring lounges at JFK
Malpensa Airport has 3 Priority Pass lounges. Sala Respighi is landside at terminal 1 so I stopped in here this morning after arriving from JFK ( actually I’m still here). I’m not an airport lounge snob, but as long as I have entry (be it because of a credit card or the class I’m flying) … Read More
