    Emirates Business

    Dubai to Bangkok
    on: A380 (Config. 1)

    4.9

    This was a connecting flight, so no check-in necessary. Flew on a A380, business class. Lounge: that was highly uninspiring. It is huge, but allows to board directly from it, but only after the economy passengers! Since I wanted to be early on board (it was 2:30am), I had to walk along way to ...

    Boarded that flight en route to BKK. Flew business class on both legs. First flight was on a B777-300 Was picked up 2 hours before the flight, something possible only because I requested it at the local sales office (online -> minimum 3 hours). Check-in was smooth as no one was ahead of me, ...

    MAD-PTY, IB6365, A340-300, Business Class, 1A As I was connecting at MAD, no need for a check-in. And no supplemental security control. I landed from my previous flight at T4 so had to take the train to T4S, that is actually on the other side of the airport. The connection was however seamless. ...

    GVA-MAD, IB3489, A321, Business Class, 1D Check-in: This Saturday morning was quieter than expected. So check-in and security were quick. In GVA, Iberia uses BA's lounge, that remains the best one of the airport. Boarding: That was the chaotic part of the process. We were called twice in ...

    BA 75 LHR-LOS B747-400, Premium Eco I was connecting from another BA flight so no check-in was necessary. The terminal LHR T5 remains one of the best terminals in Europe to connect, especially for those passengers having access to the fast track lane at the security. So less than 20 minutes ...

    Was due to fly BA from Miami to London. My flight was however delayed by several hours. I asked therefore BA to find a solution for me. And I found myself on AA56, on their latest B777-300 (N-721AN, 1 year old), with in addition the seat I would probably have chosen: 4J. Check-in: Since my ...

    London to Geneva
    on: A320

    Coming from London's South bank, I decided to hire a limo instead of grabbing a cab to go to Paddington and take the Heathrow Express. The journey took a bit more than one hour at peak time (i.e. only slightly more than via Paddington). The car dropped me in front of the First Class checking desk ...

    ORD-ZRH, LX9, A330-300, Business class Check-in was done online the day before. It is worth noting that non-Gold Star Alliance members cannot book the best seats (like the first row) in advance. So an early check-in makes sense even in business class. Luggage drop: eventless although I had then ...

    This was a Thursday night flight to Isfahan so it was full (Friday being a day off in Iran). The flight was departing from Mehrabad Airport which is downtown Tehran (so it quicker to get there). That said, cars can't drop you right in front of the terminal but about 50 meters away... Check-in: ...
