Air Canada offers a fulsome lounge network across eleven different Canadian Cities. With Canada being such a broad country, it’s admirable that they take care of their customers given that their flights are in much smaller capacity than our neighbours to the south. On a visit to the Prairies, I stopped by the local Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge which has to be among the smallest in the overall system. Review: Air… Read More

After a week in Spain seeing Madrid, Salamanca and Barcelona, it was time for our onward journey back home to Canada. This trip would have us connecting Spain – Germany – United States then Canada with a short stopover in Germany (for a pretzel). The Puerta de Alcalá VIP Lounge turned out to be a great prelude to our Shengen flight with Lufthansa. This post is one chapter in our Around the… Read More

The Asiana First Class Lounge in Seoul Incheon was a classy and tranquil space, much like it’s Asiana First Class first class product.

I made my way through the maze of tunnels and quickly swung by the United Club in Terminal 7… Read More

Review: Star Alliance Business Class Lounge, Tom Bradley International Terminal, Los Angeles, USA I was up the next day at 6 AM thanks to the jet lag. Having an international boarding card in business class, I’d have a choice of several lounges this morning so I thought I’d get up to the terminal instead of waiting around a somewhat dreary hotel. I left the hotel at about 8 AM and drove the… Read More

Review: Lufthansa First Class Lounge – Terminal 2 Satellite, Munich, Germany I was up and out the door at 6 AM today. The Nespresso coffee machine at the Aloft Munich somehow dumped water all over the shelving when I attempted to work it. As a result, I didn’t get any food or drink on the way out of the room. Despite the platinum breakfast coupons in hand, I didn’t bother with the… Read More
