You might want to double-check whether any ARC will do. A few years ago, you needed to register and only certain Visa types were eligible (F-visas for sure, not sure about others). I know that Korean...

Kumho Asiana is a Korean company incorporated under Korean law, so any bankruptcy proceedings would mainly be filed in Korea. I'm sure they also have a US corporate entity that would have to file in...

Correct, unless you have an Asiana credit card, in which case 30k flown miles plus 10k credit card spend also qualify. If you're based in Croatia, that's probably not an option but just for the sake...

I mostly travel to the same routes, so I haven't been to a ton of different lounges, but while I mainly take your point - most lounges I've been to have had underwhelming food - there are some...

Interesting similarities, though that "chicken breast sous vide" was the main offender when I had that exact same menu recently. Also, I had steak before a few years ago and had it again recently and...

I've only been to the J lounge so far but your comments sum up my opinion on that lounge completely. The much more comfortable seats are the only thing I found better (well actually in J the food is...

And note that those fares are Y, B and sometimes M all of which are quite a bit more expensive than the equivalent discounted fare. I've done this with an M fare single direction before and it cost...

I think right now this will be very hard to say as OZ is having massive issues due to a mishap (and a massive dose of mismanagement) switching their caterer. I would mentally prepare for the...
