SAS Gold Lounge Oslo

Like Copenhagen and Stockholm Arlanda airports, SAS operate a dual lounge concept in Oslo. The SAS Lounge provides a place for business class/plus fare passengers while within there is a better Gold Lounge for EuroBonus and Star Alliance gold members. I’d be flying to Arlanda on the day’s final international departure so both...

Lufthansa to Oslo from Striking Frankfurt

On days of industrial action your best bet is just not to fly at all. These actions happen for good reason, although they usually cause huge disruptions. A lot of short and mid-haul flights had been cancelled today, including mine. I was lucky to get advanced notice and sort out my situation but...

Iberia Dali VIP Lounge Madrid T4 (Schengen)

Iberia’s Regional Lounge in Madrid Terminal 4 for flying inside Schengen is the Dali VIP lounge (Dali Sala VIP). The lounge is a very similar design to the Iberia’s Velazquez lounge in terminal 4S for non-Schengen flights but smaller and has less facilities. For short intra-European flights, the lounge is an average flagship business class lounge...

Malaga Airline Lounge: AENA Sala VIP Europa

A short visit to the main lounge in Malaga Airport T3, AENA Sala VIP Europa. This lounge is used by all oneworld carriers at Malaga in addition to a range of other airlines. I used it rather early in the morning for a flight on Iberian regional affiliate and oneworld affiliate Air Nostrum. 

Iberia Velazquez Lounge Madrid T4S (Non-Schengen)

This is Iberia’s flagship lounge an offers a range of facilities for sleeping, dining, working and relaxing. It offers a high quality of amenities with a local cultural influence is open all day, everyday. Over the spring and summer of 2016 I’m getting three chances to visit the Iberia International Business...

dnata Lounge Singapore Changi T1

Changi terminal 1 has quite a number of lounges but one I had yet to visit was the dnata lounge. I was somewhat unaware of it and according to their site it was only opened a few months before visiting before my flight to Helsinki on Finnair. Although a member of the oneworld alliance, Finnair...

Cathay Pacific New Bangkok Lounge and Hong Kong in Business Class

After spending several weeks in Thailand we suddenly would be leaving. As usual we hadn’t actually planned this, after getting back to Bangkok from Changi Mai on the train overnight, I had expected to stay for a couple nights. I had been hoping to use the next sector up of...

Renovated Cathay Pacific Pier first class lounge at Hong Kong

Cathay Pacific offers a true gluttony of lounges at Hong Kong International Airport. This has developed over time with business class lounges across the terminal space. The earliest two, The Wing and The Pier also included first class lounges. Not just a sub-section or exclusive area, these entirely separate lounges...

EgyptAir to Dubai in Boeing 777-300ER Business Class

EgyptAir offered their long-haul 777 product on this route so I had a good flight in business class with a bed, decent catering and a fairly empty cabin. On a good 12+ hour flight I can imagine the seating to be adequate but that’s about all. You can sleep on it, what more...

Virgin Atlantic Little Red LHR-ABZ and Aer Lingus Gold Circle Lounge

Well it’s a day late but I eventually took a domestic ‘connection’ on Virgin Atlantic Little Red. This service is soon to be extinct. After the sale of BMI to IAG, Virgin Atlantic (VS) got the slots from Heathrow to Edinburgh and Aberdeen. They also had their own slots to Manchester...

Virgin Atlantic Revivals Lounge at Heathrow

Arriving into London on Virgin Atlantic Upper Class I visited their Revivals lounge to make plans for the day. Heathrow probably has more arrival lounges than any other airport and Virgin Atlantic have recently renovated their arrivals facilities. So in this case competition definitely is a good thing.

Virgin Atlantic A340 Upper Class Bar

Virgin Atlantic Hong Kong to London Upper Class and Clubhouse

Virgin Atlantic predominantly now traverse the Atlantic, having axed Sydney and most of their Asian routes. So for someone frequently travelling between Asia, Australia and Europe the airline is now more a distant thought but I was looking forwarding to flying them, even if it was a slight throwback to earlier...

ANA Lounge Osaka Kansai Airport

I booked an Asiana flight leaving Osaka Kansai airport yesterday as my study tour had ended. Fellow Star Alliance member, All Nippon Airways (ANA) operate the lounge used on Asiana flights. ANA operate only a handful of lounges, primarily in the Tokyo airports, so this is one a simpler offering. This...
