Last year I had to opportunity to fly in a brand spanking new Lufthansa Boeing 747-8i (also known as a 747 Intercontinental). I actually flew the aircraft all the way from Washington, DC (IAD) to Delhi (DEL), via Frankfurt (FRA). Separate aircraft on each segment, but both 747-8i. For the FRA-DEL segment, the aircraft was on its second round trip ever. What I found on that aircraft was a Special Issue of the Lufthansa Magazine – dedicated to the new 747-8i. I saved my copy and each family member I …

The two most flexible reward programs that are not locked-in to an Airline or a Hotel Chain are Ultimate Rewards from Chase and Membership Rewards from American Express. Both are excellent programs with great redemption opportunities and multiple ways to earn them. This post with compare and contrast some of the key points of these two rewards programs.
The first thing that is common between these two programs is that they are both not locked to a particular Airline or Airlines (like Miles and More is to Lufthansa, Swiss and …
United airlines seemed to have run out of funds to pay for gates at Frankfurt. We were at a gate (Z22) where we checked-in, got our boarding passes security stamped, etc. But there was no plane at the end of the jetway. I looked, it was a regular sized jetway with double gates – the type used for wide-body aircraft, but they still had no plane. We were made to walk down two flights of stairs to buses. Those took us mid-field to our 777 parked near a taxiway. It …
I love taking pictures of and flying in wide body aircraft. Sure beats an ERJ anyday! From a travel perspective, it’s all about comfort. The bigger planes are mode spacious, have higher ceilings, larger bins and in upper class, flat seats. Some narrow body aircraft do too, but they are few and far apart. As per taking pictures, I just love these big birds. They are engineering in flight! A marvel to look at, both in the air and on the ground.
Common wide body aircraft one gets to see are:
Editor’s note – I wrote these posts when I flew to India a few weeks ago. Forgot all about posting them during my trip. Here they are – in the original order and form as I wrote them. Let’s pretend I am still on the trip… . Beats being at work anyways…
I am writing this from 36,000 feet in the air, somewhere above Boston. More importantly, I am on the aBoeing 747-8i! Or as Lufthansa tags it – a 74H.
I am on the upper deck, in Business class! And …
I found three new credit cards that not only have a sign-up bonus, but also offer extra miles for transferring you balance. This is a unique opportunity to earn miles for transferring balances to potentially lowers interest rate APRs and earn some miles along the way! Not too many cards offer miles for balance transfers.
I will be the first to point out that none of these are great deals. I am personally not getting any of these cards as I do not have any balance to transfer. Without the transfers, …

Lufthansa has added it’s second route serviced by a 747-8i. It was widely known (speculated?) that this route was going to be to India, but the exact city was unknown. Finally, it is Delhi. Frankfurt – New Delhi (FRA-DEL). It will be daily service, starting August 7th.
It is really exciting for me as I am flying IAD – FRA – DEL in a few days. I will be on a 747-8i all the way! I am flying business class that too, so I will get to experience the new …
