Icelandair – The Grand Return on a Boeing 767 in Saga Premium (Business Class)

I had a sixth sense moment. After I was successful in using the 'Class UP' system to get upgraded on my first part of my trip to Iceland (from London Heathrow to Reykjavik - see that report here), I thought it might work out that I'd get a similar upgrade on the way back. To … Continue reading Icelandair – The Grand Return on a Boeing 767 in Saga Premium (Business Class)

Icelandair BUSINESS (Saga Premium) – LHR-KEF [green list] – Class UP bidding system SUCCESS

Lor' blimey, this video took a bit of effort to make! I was sitting up late in my Reykjavik hotel room last night tweaking voiceovers and bits of this and soundtracks of that. But I love making these. It's a lark. Plus: a. I'm on the road (gotta love that)b. I am a total nosebag … Continue reading Icelandair BUSINESS (Saga Premium) – LHR-KEF [green list] – Class UP bidding system SUCCESS

British Airways E190SR – first post-lockdown flight! Belfast City to London City – Trip Report!

This was *such* a fun trip to take and vlog to make. I have been posting some travel videos over the past few years and the timing and content was (cough) *ramshackle! They've been for fun and that's cool. When I watch something, I do appreciate some structure, some speaking and some quiet moments, so … Continue reading British Airways E190SR – first post-lockdown flight! Belfast City to London City – Trip Report!

Transit: Uluru to Alice Springs Qantas QF1940

Uluru Airport is a mini-airport to rival most other mini-airports.  There are two gates that seem to be operational and they both go out through the same door! As you can imagine the security line is pretty short - the only people going through it are 98% definite to be the same people who will … Continue reading Transit: Uluru to Alice Springs Qantas QF1940

Qantas QF10 – London to Perth – Jetlag & Flight Review

With a few weeks available for a trip away from an ever chillier Northern Ireland, physically and Brexitly, my twitchy booking fingers considered all kinds of warm locations and landed on the continent that is suffering terrifyingly-high temperatures this winter/summer, Australia. I wanted this trip to be about all the bits of Oz I had … Continue reading Qantas QF10 – London to Perth – Jetlag & Flight Review

Flights: LA801 – SCL to AKL, Santiago to Auckland

You may recall my previous flights with Latam, from Johannesburg to São Paulo, onwards to Buenos Aires and thence to Santiago. I'd come to expect okay-ness.  Which is fine. Safety most important and all that. Latam's obsession with queuing was much in evidence at SCL airport. The flight was boarding, but only for the 12,000 … Continue reading Flights: LA801 – SCL to AKL, Santiago to Auckland

Flights: Buenos Aires to Santiago (AEP to SCL LA351)

I was ready for the off by the time I got to Aeroparque airport in Buenos Aires.  When I'm  getting close to travelling, sometimes I'm like "okay, let's get out of here and get on with it" - like I'm anxious to see the new place. Everyone says AEP is only for domestic flights, but … Continue reading Flights: Buenos Aires to Santiago (AEP to SCL LA351)

Flights: São Paulo Transit & Latam GRU to AEP – LAN Ar 7862

Transit in São Paulo International couldn't be easier, never fear!  I flew overnight from Johannesburg to GRU and needed to transit within the same terminal (3) for my onward journey to Buenos Aires. Everything was well sign-posted. The airport is very well kept, which can't be said of all South American international terminals (cough, Buenos … Continue reading Flights: São Paulo Transit & Latam GRU to AEP – LAN Ar 7862
