Smile Video Report: Mr. Clemens goes RTW for my 30th in SQ Suites, CX First, and EK First!

Hello FT community!

This is Mr. Clemens’s second series of video trip reports, following his first which documented his travels through Myanmar and Brazil (a few of which I still have left to edit and post).

To celebrate my 30th birthday last month, I took Mr. Clemens and my partner to visit Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, and Dubai on a round-the-world (barely) trip of a lifetime. The trip included:

  • Singapore Air Suites Class on an A380 from LAX-NRT
  • Cathay Pacific First Class on a 747-400 from HND-HKG (on my actual birthday!)
  • Cathay Pacific Business Class on an A330 from HND-HKG (no FC available this route, oh no!)
  • Emirates First Class on an A380 from ICN-DXB and again from DXB-SFO

Here’s the first trip report. More to come as I have time to edit them! Enjoy!

Looking forward to the rest. Any comments from Mr. Clemens or your partner on the product?

I'll be on 3 of the 4 flights legs you listed in less than a month, except going the reverse direction on CX 747.

Mr. Clemens doesn't really talk much. But, don't worry -- my partner makes up for it! It was his first time in international First, so he was ecstatic and wide eyed the whole time. He was marveling as the Dom was being poured for him right when Melissa McCarthy boarded. He was so overwhelmed he said hello to her like she was a friend of his or something. I wish I'd gotten it on camera. She was so sweet -- she said hello back, didn't phase her at all!

Regarding the product, I was really impressed by both soft and hard on Singapore -- it was my first time on them and I'd been looking forward to experiencing them for the last year.

Very cool we have such similar itinerary. And a bit jealous that you have yet to take off! Hope you enjoy the experience -- it will be hard not to, I'm sure!
