During our long layover at SEA-TAC we also ventured over to The Club at SEA Lounge in the “S” Concourse. Many of the International flights from Seattle depart from the Seattle Tacoma International Airport “S” Gates. Despite the concourse being a small train ride out, there isn’t much available in the “S” Concourse to keep you entertained, making access to a lounge all that more important.

The United Club at Sea Tac recently underwent a relocation from the “N” Gates to the “A” Gates. When United moved the lounge, they also refreshed the concept in more modern colours, tones and space. The new lounge occupies a much smaller footprint than the old version, but still represents a pleasant space.

With another year, another frequent flier point de-valuation came and went. Thankfully, Aeroplan had the courtesy to announce the changes with several months in advance, unlike some other recent frequent flier program devaluations. It seemed like the logical time to burn more miles. I’ve pretty much given up on maintaining status after 8 years, since the miles are easier to obtain through other forms of accumulation.  Trip Introduction: The Khors of Oman,… Read More

Air Canada were among the first to offer a fully flat executive class seat on its wide body aircraft. It’s seats offered direct aisle access and a comfortable way to travel intercontinentally.

We had a welcomed, but brief stop at the Swiss Business Lounge in Concourse D at the Zurich International Airport. The lounge is located in the non Shenghen terminal, and it is used to serve flights to the United Kingdom, like the one we were on today.
