Review: American Airlines First Class from Cleveland to Charlotte
I was never supposed to fly from Cleveland to Charlotte, but a flight cancellation the night before saw me rebooked on this service. Presumably because I was nice and sympathetic to the gate agent changing the flights, I was put into first class for this flight. Since I was connecting...

Review: American Airlines Main Cabin Extra from Chicago to Cleveland
It’s quite a short flight from Chicago to Cleveland and I was seated in Main Cabin Extra due to my frequent flyer status. People seated here get extra legroom and complimentary alcoholic drinks, which is quite nice. After spending some time in the Flagship Lounge, I headed to the gate....

Review: Airlink ERJ-135 Economy Class (PZM-JNB)
From Pietermaritzburg to Johannesburg we flew on Airlink, the only game in town. Even with a monopoly on the route and a small ERJ-135 regional jet, the carrier really impressed me.

Review: United Airlines 787-9 Business Class To Cape Town [2022]
To reach Cape Town from the USA, it just makes sense to fly a U.S. carrier versus an all-day connection in London, Paris, Amsterdam, or Frankfurt. I flew United Airlines on the Boeing 787-9 in Polaris business class from Newark to Cape Town. This review recounts my journey and what...
