When you fly in a private jet I’d assume that the service has got to be top notch. All of the attention is on you and your small party of fellow passengers.

When you fly commercial, odds are pretty high that there are many passengers for the flight crew to take care of, regardless of what cabin you’re flying in.

The most personal attention that we’ve ever had was on a flight with Singapore Air when Kim, Lucas and I plus one other passenger, were the only ones flying in Business Class. Continue reading Woman Was Only Passenger On 189 Passenger Jet2 Flight To Greece

Lucas and I got home late last night from Pittsburgh. It should’ve been a quick one hour flight.

We were scheduled to fly at 5:50 PM from PIT, getting us into New York’s LaGuardia at 7:14 PM. When we arrived at the gate, it seemed busy but nothing unusual. After standing around for a few minutes, I noticed that the screen said now boarding for a 2:45 flight which was switched to 5:30!

This got me curious. If the flight before ours was delayed, then our flight most likely would be too. Continue reading Cancelled Flights- Lucas & I Get Home on AA Flight That Doesn’t Really Exist!

Last night I went online to book a  flight for our upcoming summer destination.

What should’ve been around 10 minutes online at Virgin America ended up being a couple of hours, lots of hold times (with bad music) during calls to customer service and no resolution so far. Continue reading Virgin America Takes Double My Points, Where’s My Flight?

JetBlue Mosaic

I’m currently in Cancun with Lucas on our trip to Mexico.

Back in May I went for a status match to JetBlue Mosaic with my Southwest Companion Pass.

Since I knew that I would be flying the airline for my Cancun trip, I’d get a glimpse at seeing what the Mosaic benefits were up close. Here are my thoughts on what JetBlue Mosaic does for you. Continue reading An Impressive Experience Flying with JetBlue Mosaic Status

My Newfound Love for the Window Seat

View From the Window 

When I fly, I always prefer to sit in an aisle seat. There are a few reasons why the aisle is my choice.

First of all, I don’t want to bother anybody if I need to get up to go to the restroom or get something out of my bag in the overhead bin. I also like that I can stretch my leg into the aisle, even for a few seconds if the space feels a bit tight. The last reason I like the aisle is so that I can quickly get my bag out of the overhead bin upon landing.

During our flight home from Toronto last month, I rediscovered a reason to love the window seat. Continue reading My Newfound Love for the Window Seat
