Economy Class, Japan Airlines

How Great is Japan Airlines Domestic Economy Class?

Japan Airlines might not have the best lounges for domestic passengers, but Japan Airlines domestic economy class is a rock solid experience! JAL has possibly the friendliest staff out of all oneworld airlines and I must appreciate their can-do attitude. One time, I was flying with a big umbrella that looked like a katana and I was not allowed to take it on board with me. It was also too big to fit inside of my bag. And what did Japan Airlines ground crew do? They figured out a cardboard pipe around the umbrella and wrapped it tight against my check-in bag with plastic. And all this for free of charge even before I had any oneworld status! Way to go JAL! 🙆🏼‍♂️

Finnair, First Class, Lounge, Oneworld

Finnair Platinum Wing Lounge in Helsinki is one of the best Emerald lounges

For anyone wondering out there, yes there is a First Class lounge at Helsinki-Vantaa airport in Finland and that is called Finnair Platinum Wing. The lounge is open to oneworld Emerald members and Frist Class passengers. Curiously, Finnair does not have First Class in any of their planes, but I supposed this is to cater for the needs of Japan Airlines passengers. Perhaps for American Airlines passengers too if American ever decided to resume their flights to Helsinki (and brought their First Class back for that matter). This lounge is awesome, but you can only access it if you are not flying within the EU.


Pokémon Café Experience in Tokyo without a Reservation

I recently flew Finnair to Japan to do some tourism in the country. While this blog is mostly about airlines and lounges, I am such a Pokémon fan that I have to share my tips on getting to experience Pokémon Café in Tokyo even if you don’t have a reservation. Now, while the Pokémon Café close to Tokyo Station is reservation only, there is another one not too far away that you can just pop in to any time you want.

First Class, Lounge, Oneworld, Qantas

Qantas First Class Lounge in Auckland is a Cozy Little Lounge

The airport in Auckland, New Zealand is quite small and I was surprised that they even had a Qantas First Class lounge for oneworld Emerald customers. The airport does not open the terminal early, so if you have an early morning flight, don’t bother going there 2 hours before your flight. The check-in counters will be open, but the airside will open later. I was a bit nervous about the lounge access initially – I was flying on a Jeststar operated flight that was sold to me with a Qantas code and I was not sure if my Finnair Plus status was enough to get me to the lounge. It sure was. 😁

British Airways, Economy Class, Oneworld

How is British Airways Economy Class on Airbus A380

It is no secret that Airbus A380 is the king of the skies. There is no other passenger airplane quite as massive as the European-built giant. Needless to say, I was quite excited about this opportunity given that I have been dying to fly on one of these planes ever since I was a kid. In this post, I will tell all about my experience flying in British Airways intercontinental economy class. Let’s get started!

American Airlines, Lounge, Oneworld

DCA E gates American Airlines Admirals Club lounge

If you are flying from Ronald Reagan Airport in Washington DC and happen to be on a oneworld route, your best option for a lounge is the American Airlines Admirals Club Lounge (Concourse E). There are other lounges as well, but they aren’t as nice; take a look at the underwhelming one in concourse C for example. 😴 But even with the best American Airlines has to offer in the capital of the English speaking superpower, I am far from being impressed.
