Trip Report: Delta A330 Economy Class | Barcelona to New York JFK

Trip Report: Delta A330 Economy Class | Barcelona to New York JFK

After a nice extended weekend in Barcelona, it was time to head back home. We’d flown Air France on the outbound journey and had a less than great experience. I wasn’t quite ready to go home after such a short visit to Barcelona but alas it was back to work. As part of our super cheap SkyTeam fare we scored for this trip, our return flight was aboard Delta’s A330 Economy Class via JFK. We took the metro to Barcelona–El…

Lounge Review: Delta Sky Club DFW

Lounge Review: Delta Sky Club DFW

Terminal E is still under a complete rennovation so the Delta Sky Club DFW has moved around in recent years. I’m not an incredibly frequent flyer of Delta these days but I do have access thanks to my American Express Platinum card. But for this particular journey, we were traveling internationally in Business Class with Delta and…

Lounge Review: KAL Lounge LAX

Ready for some relaxation before my departure for London, I headed to the KAL Lounge LAX in the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT).

This lounge serves premium SkyTeam passengers in addition to Priority Pass members. Note: If you are accessing the KAL Lounge LAX using Priority Pass, you can only access the lounge between 12:00 PM and 8:00 PM daily….

Trip Report: Czech Airlines Economy Class | Budapest to Prague

Trip Report: Czech Airlines Economy Class | Budapest to Prague

I’ve never flow Spirit Airlines in the US but it’s everyone’s favorite airline brand to hate. After flying Czech Airlines Economy Class, I think I can imagine that this is how people often feel when they fly Spirit. And it’s not a compliment. Traffic was extra light so we arrived at the Budapest Airport a little over 2 hours before departures. I wanted to have some time explore a lounge plus we had bags to check. But we quickly earned that…
