JAL First Class: The best flight I have ever taken

After another wonderful stay at the Tokyo Hilton, our trip home had to commence. @Macpsych and I had said our goodbyes at the hotel, as he was flying home via Seoul Icheon and Helsinki, as part of his mileage run to collect enough BA tier points to remain gold. (I have done a spreadsheet 😉). ...

Journey to Japan: Part one

My latest jaunt to Japan began yesterday - and the journey to Tokyo will probably take a few posts to cover! I left London yesterday lunchtime, after squeezing in a couple more productive hours in the office. I 'checked in' via British Airways First Class section in T5 and made my way straight into the ...

Sleeping to Scotland…again

Back in July, I enjoyed my second ever sleeper train journey from London to Edinburgh. I was well overdue a visit to my mum, who lives in Dunfermline, and opted to get the train up and a flight back down. Why? Because I just love long-distance travel by train. The first time I did it, ...

London to Tokyo: First Class with British Airways

Our latest trip to Japan started in Heathrow Airport, with a tasty and much-needed breakfast in British Airways' Concorde Room. This is the lounge set aside for passengers traveling First Class. Yes, First Class. But before you jump to any conclusions, I can assure you that our tickets were not full price. We used a combination ...

A business travel bug…

I've just spend the last week working in Dublin and, while the workshops and coaching sessions went very well, I managed to pick up an unwelcome dose of flu. It's an unfortunate risk when you're a frequent flyer and I guess it was my turn to pick something up. Being sick when on holidays is ...

Singapore to London: A first class experience with Malaysia Airlines

The return trip from Singapore was once again with Malaysian Airline, but this time I was treated to First Class. Frank managed to find an excellent deal, which meant the price was far from exorbitant and it gave me something to really look forward to. Singapore to KL I had a couple of hours to ...
