Trip Report - Vietnam Airlines Business Class A321 VN662 - SIN to HAN (Singapore to Hanoi)

To get from Singapore to Hanoi earlier this month, I decided to travel on Vietnam Airlines’ Business Class product for a number of reasons - it departs from Terminal 4 of Singapore Changi Airport (where the Blossom – SATS & Plaza Premium Lounge is) and more importantly, I have not actually flown on Vietnam Airlines before. Additionally, I wanted to make full use of a stopover on a Singapore Airlines redemption (before the new redemption rates kicked in) so I needed to position myself in Zone 3 first. Check out my review of Vietnam Airlines’ Business Class product.

Trip Report: KLM Business Class KL835 777-300ER - SIN to DPS (Singapore to Denpasar)

While I typically do advocate the use of airline miles for Business Class and First Class flights, I managed to snag up a pretty good deal on KLM Business Class flights for me to take my family down to Bali for a long weekend. On this trip, I booked the Business Class tickets for approximately S$500 per passenger (return-ticket) which is only a fraction of what Singapore Airlines charges (read about my Business Class experience from Singapore to Bali on Singapore Airlines here!) so that to me is a great deal! Check out my first experience with KLM’s Business Class product!

Trip Report: Delta Air Lines First Class DL44 - MCO to JFK (Orlando to New York)

After spending two weeks in the United States, I made my way back to Singapore with a flight from Orlando to New York on Delta Air Lines. This was the second time (my first was from JFK to TPA) that I was flying on the airline in Domestic First Class so I was pretty clear on what to expect. I returned the car at the airport before making my way to the main building in Orlando International Airport (which is in no way as nice as Tampa International Airport) - getting through security took a while and there was no premium lane for passengers traveling in First Class (only Sky Priority check-in). Check out my review of Delta Air Lines’ First Class product!

Lounge Review: China Airlines Dynasty Business Class Lounge Taipei

During my last trip to Taipei, I stayed at the beautiful Grand Hyatt Taipei (which is rumoured to be Taipei's most haunted hotel) and the amazingly opulent Mandarin Oriental, Taipei. On my way back to Singapore, I checked out the China Airlines Dynasty Business Class Lounge Taipei and was immediately blown away by how beautiful it is. As part of the benefits for holding an ANZ Travel Visa Signature Card, I have unlimited access to Veloce Lounges around the world and this lounge used to be part of that list - it is sadly now being removed.
