And I would argue, to be honest, that the breakfast in the Flagship lounge is better than Qantas. Depending on the day of the week the Flagship lounge can be VERY crowded in the morning with two...

AFAIK, the only property that is officially excluded is in Washington, DC at the Conrad. Not all Hilton properties have lounges, mind you (especially in "resort" destinations). They had one at the...

Yes. Lounge access + 100% bonus on points. I left Marriott for Hilton, and as a Diamond, I've been quite content with the move. I miss the better premium brand offerings like JW, although the Conrad...

If you're traveling with a companion I'd actually argue that the AA 763 is BETTER in coach than the A350. 2x3x2, comfortable seats and decent legroom. Particularly on the overnight segment where...

Pathetic, yes, but the options between LAX and HNL aren't much better on other carriers. Hawaiian offers all lie-flat to HNL, and Delta and United each have one daily rotation with lie-flat seats...

I think they fly at any altitude that's optimal for the day/time. I haven't noticed any trend on the 321 fleet, I've heard "we've just reached our 36,000 feet cruise level" many times LAX-CLT and...

I've taken the ICN-HNL nonstop in F before (A330) and it's basically not much different from J. It is a dinner service but not a full intercontinental longhaul treatment. Light breakfast served prior...
