If there is an award for the most devalued frequent flyer programme, I reckon Malaysia Airlines would win it in a heartbeat! Many airlines' have made it 'more expensive' to redeem award travel but I have not come across one that has almost doubled the points required for every award seat. Malaysia Airlines used to have a very generous programme...
Qantas announced today that they will be reintroducing the Kangaroo-route to London via Singapore instead of Dubai come March 2018 after "divorcing" British Airways after ditching Singapore 5 years ago. Just so happened that I was flying back to Melbourne from Singapore and chatted with the lady that checked me in regarding this new arrangement. She mentioned to me that...

Have you seen the latest Singapore Airlines’ safety video? I am all for airlines coming up with creative ways to capture their passengers attention for that crucial 5-minutes prior to take off. I still cannot stop laughing thinking of Mr Bean in the latest British Airways video but somehow, I cringe when I watch this SQ video.   Why?!   Firstly, there is absolutely...
Malaysia Airlines aims to regain their 5-star SKYTRAX rating crown by 2018 says Malaysian PM Najib Razak.   Back in 2012 when Malaysia Airlines was awarded the 5-star status in the SKYTRAX World Airline Awards for delivering "consistent and high quality of product and service", they were also awarded the ‘World’s Best Airline Cabin Crew’ and ‘Best Airline Signature Dish’ for its Satay, a traditional...

Having flown on several short-haul AirAsia flights, I finally decided it was time to try out their long-haul product (operated by AirAsiaX) especially when they have won Best LCC in the World, eight years in a row! Whilst I am used to breezing through the check-in desks and using the fast-track lane at airports, I had no access to any...
I think Cathay Pacific is fabulous! In this day and age, I cannot think of any other reason that can compete with 'service' other than 'price'. Cathay Pacific's business class service was beautiful. I booked myself on a premium economy seat from Bangkok to Singapore but I got upgraded to Business Class at the airport. I have yet to try...
